extra products

Hi Ray

I have a product details page which uses these recordsets to return the product info.

<?php
$PageContents = new WA_MySQLi_RS("PageContents",$DBConnection,1);
$PageContents->setQuery("SELECT productcategories.*, settings.CompanyName, settings.Town, settings.County, settings.PostCode FROM productcategories, settings WHERE CategoryID = ? OR CatPermalink = ? AND Live = 1");
$PageContents->bindParam("i", "".(isset($_GET['id'])?$_GET['id']:"") ."", "-1"); //paramOffersID
$PageContents->bindParam("s", "".(isset($_GET['perm'])?$_GET['perm']:"") ."", "-1"); //paramPermalink
$PageContents->execute();
?>
<?php
$Categories = new WA_MySQLi_RS("Categories",$DBConnection,0);
$Categories->setQuery("SELECT productcategories.CategoryName, productcategories_2.CategoryName AS parentcategoryname, productcategories.CatPermalink, productcategories_2.CatPermalink AS parentpermalink, products.* FROM productcategories INNER JOIN productcategories AS productcategories_2 ON productcategories_2.CategoryID = productcategories.CategoryParentID LEFT OUTER JOIN products ON products.ProductCategoryID = productcategories.CategoryID WHERE products.ProdPermalink = ? AND products.ProductLive = 1 ORDER BY productcategories.CategoryOrder ASC");
$Categories->bindParam("s", "".$_GET["perm"] ."", "-1"); //permparam
$Categories->execute();
?>



I'd like to add a sub row of products based on if they have the same ManufacturerID from the productmanufacturers table

how would I go about doing that please?

Cheers

Jamie

I'm not sure what you mean by a sub-row. I imagine it is just a matter of adding another recordset filtered by the categoryID row of the first one.

sorry for any confusion. basically am just looking to show any other products that share the same ManufacturerID as the main product detail and link to them.....

Yes, then just add another recordset to the page and filter it based on the CategoryID from the first recordset.

sorry, but how would i do that?

Update your SQL statement to return the ManufacturerID so you have it to compare....

Then add the new recordset with:

WHERE ProductManufacturerID = ManIDParam

and then add the parameter ManIDParam with a value of: <?php echo($Categories->getColumnVal("ProductManufacturerID")); ?>

thanks Ray

So have created the new RS

<?php
$ProductsInRange = new WA_MySQLi_RS("ProductsInRange",$DBConnection,1);
$ProductsInRange->setQuery("SELECT * FROM products WHERE ProductManufacturerID = ManIDParam");
$ProductsInRange->bindParam("i", "-1", "".($Categories->getColumnVal("ProductManufacturerID")) .""); //ManIDParam
$ProductsInRange->execute();
?>



Just not sure where/how to add return the ProductManufacturerID in the original RS?

Cheers

Isn't it already there? You have this in the select statement: products.*

isn't the manufacturer ID in the products table?

I think it should be:

<?php
$ProductsInRange = new WA_MySQLi_RS("ProductsInRange",$DBConnection,1);
$ProductsInRange->setQuery("SELECT * FROM products WHERE ProductManufacturerID = ?");
$ProductsInRange->bindParam("i", "-1", "".($Categories->getColumnVal("ProductManufacturerID")) .""); //ManIDParam
$ProductsInRange->execute();
?>
