column toggling

Hey Ray

Have been following this tut http://www.webassist.com/tutorials/How-to-enable-sorting-of-dynamic-data to toggle a column and have tried doing it twice but I am getting the error:

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'WHERE ProductID = 0 ORDER BY ProductName DESC LIMIT 0, 1000' at line 1

each time.

Have attached the file

Cheers

Jamie

Add this code to line 190:

die($query_WADAproducts);

That will display the full query and could give us a better clue about where it is going wrong.

at line 190?

You want it right before line 191:

$WADAproducts = mysql_query($query_WADAproducts, $PowerCMSConnection) or die(mysql_error());

that is the line the is connecting to the database and giving the error. So adding that to line 190 will let you see the query being used so that we can try to spot the issue.

OK, have put it there - was just querying it as that is the code block for the update column order that was created a long time ago rather than the column toggle...

With the die statement at line 190, I am still getting the same error:

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'WHERE ProductID = 0 ORDER BY ProductName ASC LIMIT 0, 1000' at line 1



on closer inspection, I moved the die statement to line 211 and get this error:

UPDATE products SET ProductOrder = WHERE ProductID = 0 ORDER BY ProductName ASC

I'm confused about what you are trying to do on that page. It looks like update statements, but you have query builder sorts and filters applied. Then you have this $start variable that you are incrementing above in an IF statment but you are doing almost the same update below outside of the IF.

I think I'd have to debug this with you in a premier ticket to get a better idea of what you are trying to achieve.

ok, been 'playing around' with the page and have removed the update order and got the toggle working

basically I had been using this http://prntscr.com/7ydm4g to allow the client to re-order items rather than doing it by asc or dec so I guess that was conflicting with the column toggle as per that tut i referenced.
