Detail page returns the same item no matter which link is clicked from Master page list

Detail page returns the same item no matter which link is clicked from Master page list

I've created a Tab menu that shows recordset items in the Tab Panel when each Tab is clicked. Haven't been able to successfully create a link on the Tab Panel items that will return unique results on a detail page. The detail page returns the same item no mater which panel item is clicked.

I'm using Jason's Web Development Tutorial - Getting started with MySQL and dynamic websites, and tried many different configurations with the same result.

Once this is worked out, I'll be using Data Bridge for the rest of the site. Ray told me recently that DB couldn't be used in Tab menus. Can't I create a master page inside of each tab panel using Data Bridge, or is this overkill?

Though the website is attached, the pages in question are Products2.php and Prod2Detail.php

Thanks

I never told you DB couldn't be used in tab menus. I'm sure it can be used in tab menus, we just don't offer a tab menu solution directly through our tools.

You could probably create a master page for your tables inside Data Bridge and then use Framework Plugins to add them into your tabbed menus.

You didn't attach any pages, but I don't think that would effect my answer.

Sorry, I misunderstood. Will try the Data Bridge solution.

I'm using Repeating Table to show the records, but this doesn't provide a solution to the original problem - create links for each item on the list that will provide a matching record on the detail page. I've tried using your tutorial, but can't get it to work and can't find a solution for this within DataBridge.

Trying to attached files, but not working. It acts like it's attaching the files, but then just sits there. When I click Done, there are no files attached.

Thanks

In Data Bridge have the wizard create a Results and Details page and the links will be created for you.

I'm not sure why attaching files wouldn't work for you. Links just need to pass a URL parameter and then the details page that it links to has to filter the recordset based on that URL parameter.

Maybe try creating a .zip file before attaching.

Will try that, thanks.

BTW, I tried attaching a zip file, but no luck. Will send files later if needed.

The error was fixed by trashing and recreating the recordset - it had gotten corrupted.
