pagination update

pagination update

Hi Ray

I have a results page which spans a number of pages and I use the pagination to navigate through it.

If, for example, I was on page 4, select an item from that page to update and then click update, what do I need to put in the update record 'go to' to automatically go back to page 4 (rather than the starting page)?

The url looks like practicebrands_results.php?pageNum_WADAbrands=3&totalRows_WADAbrands=102

Cheers

Jamie

Save the value of $_GET['pageNum_WADAbrands'] on the results page as a session variable on top of the page. Then you can pass it back in the url after updating to return to that page.

OK

I think I have set the session on the results page

<?php
@session_start();
if (!isset($_SESSION["BrandsPaginationReturn"])) {
$_SESSION["BrandsPaginationReturn"] = "".$_GET['pageNum_WADAbrands'] ."";
}
?>



Is that right?

Then on the update page, I am struggling to construct the redirectURL in the server behaviour update record

At the moment I have

$WA_redirectURL = "practicebrands_results.php".$_SESSION['BrandsPaginationReturn']  ."";



What am I doing wrong?

Your trigger for setting the session variable is wrong... it should be:

if (isset($_GET['pageNum_WADAbrands'])) {

Then make sure on your update page you are starting the session on the top:

<?php
@session_start();
?>

cheers Ray...

the session_start on the update page, is that it or do I need to reference anything? If thats it, the URL I have is still not redirecting back to the right page...just goes to the first page of the results.

The redirect needs to add the parameter name too:

$WA_redirectURL = "practicebrands_results.php?pageNum_WADAbrands=".$_SESSION['BrandsPaginationReturn'] ."";

did you update the trigger on the result page as I recommended?

Yes, changed it to

<?php
@session_start();
if (isset($_GET['pageNum_WADAbrands'])) {
$_SESSION["BrandsPaginationReturn"] = "".$_GET['pageNum_WADAbrands'] ."";
}
?>



have changed the redirect url as you have suggested

$WA_redirectURL = "practicebrands_results.php?pageNum_WADAbrands=".$_SESSION['BrandsPaginationReturn'] ."";



Still returning to the first page

What is the URL when it returns you to the first page?

What happens if you write the url to the update page like:

<?php echo("practicebrands_results.php?pageNum_WADAbrands=".$_SESSION['BrandsPaginationReturn'] .""); ?>

Does it look correct?

the return url is just practicebrands_results.php

As to the second q, it lacks the ID this is the output onpage: practicebrands_results.php?pageNum_WADAbrands=

Do you have a URL where I can view it? It sounds like the session variable isn't getting set properly.
