How to create compare products?

After creating all dataassist pages, i got a page where there are all products displayed. I would want user to click compare checkbox of each products (whichever he want to compare) & then click submit & then display those products selected in next page.

How do we do this?

You add a checkbox with the ID for the record set as the value into your repeated region. Make sure the name ends with [] (that tells php that it can have more than one value). Then use DataAssist search on the compare results page with a type list comparison passing the field name (without the brackets) and that should do it.

Currently on page: compare.php
List of users are displayed with company names.
there like 20 users.

Currently this is how it looks like:


<table border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="5">
<tr>
<td>Choose</td>

<td>ID</td>
<td>EmpID</td>
<td>Image</td>
<td>FirstName</td>
<td>LastName</td>
<td>CompanyID</td>
</tr>
<form action="compare-results.php" method="get" name="compare">

<?php do { ?>
<tr>

<td><input name="id[]" type="checkbox" value="<?php echo $row_Users['ID']; ?>" /></td>
<td><?php echo $row_Users['ID']; ?></td>
<td><?php echo $row_Users['EmpID']; ?></td>
<td><?php echo $row_Users['Image']; ?></td>
<td><?php echo $row_Users['FirstName']; ?></td>
<td><?php echo $row_Users['LastName']; ?></td>
<td><?php echo $row_Users['CompanyID']; ?></td>



</tr>
<?php } while ($row_Users = mysql_fetch_assoc($Users)); ?>
<tr>
<td>
<input name="Submit" type="submit" />
</td>
</tr>
</form>

</table>



  "Make sure the name ends with [] (that tells php that it can have more than one value)"  

- So thats refers to checkbox name right?

What about form method its going to be GET or POST?

  "Then use DataAssist search on the compare results page with a type list comparison passing the field name (without the brackets) and that should do it. -  

- I want results to be shown on compare-results.php
So i need to go to compare-results.php and use dataassist as said? So then what does "passing the field name (without the brackets)" there is a field named "id[]" which is with brackets.

Now i am at Multiple Search Results tab under Data Assist search wizard. then here i choose Column as ID, Column Type as Number/Boolean,

Then there is "Exact match form field " options are: New form field, id[] , Submit.

So what needs to be choosen.

Confused here.

I choosed it has id[]


Pages attached..

No results just entire list is appearing.

Change line 16 to:
$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromList("ID","id","AND","=",0);

Since there are multiple values you have to use a type"List" and not type "Edit" search. On this page you don't use the brackets when referring to the list name.
