repeat region fails

repeat region fails

Hi

I'm having an issue with applying a repeat region;

The following works fine (a calculated unix_timestamp, with the current year and birth month and day, so that this year's day can be displayed).

<p><?php echo strftime("%a %e %b", $rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("cbirth")); ?> - <?php echo($rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("FirstName")); ?> <?php echo($rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("Surname")); ?></p>

Showing the first record properly.

However, as soon as I apply the repeat region:

<?php
while(!$rsBirthdays->atEnd()) {
?>
<p><?php echo strftime("%a %e %b", $rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("cbirth")); ?> - <?php echo($rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("FirstName")); ?> <?php echo($rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("Surname")); ?></p>
<?php
$rsBirthdays->moveNext();
}
$rsBirthdays->moveFirst(); //return RS to first record
?>

the region repeats, but I get the following error where the date should be displayed:

Warning: strftime() expects parameter 2 to be long, string given in /home/sites/domainname.org/public_html/admin/sites/members/birthdays.php on line 77 - (members name here)

Hope there's a simple solution!

(I should add that I have a similar 'events' page where everything works fine - but I can't see any differences!)

Many thanks
Chris

Try using: <?php echo strftime("%a %e %b", strtotime($rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("cbirth"))); ?>

Thanks Ray - the repeat region now works, but all the dates have defaulted to Jan 1 1970 (the first unix_timestamp date)!

Cheers

What format are you using in the cbirth field? If you add it to the page like this: <?php echo $rsBirthdays->getColumnVal("cbirth"); ?>

HI Ray

The mysql_i query is:

<?php
$rsBirthdays = new WA_MySQLi_RS("rsBirthdays",$connRoSite_i,0);
$rsBirthdays->setQuery("SELECT `members`.`MemID`, `members`.`FirstName`, `members`.`Surname`, `members`.`MemPic`, `members`.`Active`, day(DOB) AS bday, month(DOB) AS bmonth, UNIX_TIMESTAMP(STR_TO_DATE(CONCAT(year(Curdate()), '-',month(DOB),'-',day(DOB),'00:00:00'), '%%Y-%%m-%%d')) AS cbirth FROM members WHERE SiteID= ? AND (DOB is not null ) ORDER BY bmonth, bday, Surname");
$rsBirthdays->bindParam("i", "".$_SESSION['SiteID'] ."", "-1"); //p1
$rsBirthdays->execute();
?>

HTH

Cheers

Hi Ray

Sussed it!

The MySQLi behaviour (the same as its predecessor) puts %% in the code, which the mysql_I behaviour doesn't like!

Change the %% to % and everything works fine.

I should have remembered this, as I've come across it several times.

Thanks for your help

Cheers

Hmmnnn - not quite so simple, unfortunately (though that did work).

I've attached a screenshot showing what should happen- currently, there are 3 different recordsets, the third is meant to be a union of the first 2, but it isn't repeating.

The union recordset works when I try it in Navicat,

(BTW - if I was starting this from scratch, I wouldn't have 2 different methods of storing the birthday details - but I did this several years ago when I knew even less than I know now! 1 site type has the DOB, others don't need to record the year of birth)

Cheers

Hi Ray

I tried removing the variables completely and entering test values instead, but the repeat region still doesn't work.

I'm wondering if there's some incompatibility between the union query and the repeat behaviour (clutching at straws!)

BTW - when I tried to use only p1 as the Session value for each part of the union query, I received the following error:

Number of variables doesn't match number of parameters in prepared statement in home/sites/domainname.org/public_html/webassist/mysqli/rsobj.php on line 160

Using the same Session value as p1 and p2 fixed this.

If all else fails, I can use the 2 separate recordsets and 'show if', but I'd rather just uses the combined one to save resources, if pos.

many thanks
Cheers

I think I'd have to debug this in a premier support ticket at this point. I'm really not sure why it wouldn't work.

Hi Ray

Thanks anyway - I an't justify spending the money on a premier ticket - I'll use 2 recordsets and a 'show if'.

Thank again

Cheers
