Repeat loop within another repeat loop.

Repeat loop within another repeat loop.

How can I do a repeat within another repeat?

I have a repeat loop for available product sizes in my product_details.php page which works great. It checks whether there are attribute sizes available for this particular product and if so, loops and displays those option names on the product_details.php page.

Here is the code for that:

<!--### Available SIZES ###-->
<?php if ($row_WADAproducts['ProductAttributeSize'] == '1') { ?>
<div class="clearfix">
<label class="pull-left">Sizes:</label>
<?php do { ?>
<?php echo $row_rsSize_2['OptionName']; ?> /
<?php } while ($row_rsSize_2 = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsSize_2)); ?>
</div>
<?php }?>



I like to display the same information also on the product_results.php page.

My challenge is that, in the products_results.php page, this repeat loop nests within another repeat loop that displays each individual product on the category page.

So when I simply paste the repeat and the recordset from the products_detail.php page into the products_results.php page = it only shows the option names of the first product on the page but not for the rest.

What do I have to change to make this work?

Here is my code for this portion of the products_result.php page:

<?php do { ?>
<article class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-4 col-lg-4 text-center">
<div class="product">

p class="product-name"><strong>
<?php if ($row_WADAproducts['ProductAttributeSize'] == '') echo $row_WADAproducts['ProductSize']; ?>
</strong> </p>
</div><span class="alert-success"><?php echo $row_WADAproducts['ProductPromoText']; ?><?php echo $row_WADAproducts['ProductPromoCode']; ?></span>




<!-- START OPTION NAME REPEAT -->

<?php if ($row_WADAproducts['ProductAttributeSize'] == '1') { ?>
<?php do { ?>
<?php echo $row_rsSize_2['OptionName']; ?> /
<?php } while ($row_rsSize_2 = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsSize_2)); ?><p class="custom_product_info">starting at only:</p>
<?php } ?>

<!-- END OPTION NAME REPEAT -->



<p class="product-price"><span><?php echo $row_WADAproducts['ProductSRP']; ?></span> $<?php echo $row_WADAproducts['ProductPrice']; ?></p>
<div class="product-specials">
<div class="stars">
<table width="90%" border="0" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2" align="center">

<?php if ($row_WADAproducts['ProductPrice'] > '99') { ?><td><div align="center"><img src="images/Icons/FreeShipping50x50.png" width="35" height="35" /></div></td><?php } ?>
<?php if ($row_WADAproducts['ProductFreeBonus'] == '1') { ?><td><div align="center"><img src="images/Icons/FreeBonus50x50.png" width="35" height="35" /></div></td><?php } ?>
<?php if ($row_WADAproducts['ProductSRP'] != '') { ?><td><div align="center"><img src="images/Icons/OnSale50x50.png" width="35" height="35" /></div></td><?php } ?>
</tr>
</table>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</article>
<?php } while ($row_WADAproducts = mysql_fetch_assoc($WADAproducts)); ?>

Any pointers are appreciated.

Thanks a lot,

Usually you would need to also copy and paste to move your recordset inside of the outer loop as well so that it will get the associated rows. Try moving the options recordset into the outer loop and make sure it is filtered by the recordset row that is repeated.

If you still have problems please attach the actual page to a reply to this post. It is much easier to debug and give advice when I can open the page in Dreamweaver and reference line numbers.
