nesting repeat region

Hey Ray

In the db I have a table 'productmanufacturers' which is used to select a ManufacturerName and add it to the table.

Then, I have a table 'download' which creates a dropdown and populates it with the ManufacturerName above into the column 'DownloadManufacturer' within the 'download' table.

On the front end, I am creating a repeat region which lists out all the values from table 'productmanufacturers' column 'ManufacturerName'
RS:

<?php
$Downloads = new WA_MySQLi_RS("Downloads",$DBConnection,0);
$Downloads->setQuery("SELECT * FROM productmanufacturers WHERE Live = 1 ORDER BY ManufacturerName ASC");
$Downloads->execute();
?>


repeat region

<?php
while(!$Downloads->atEnd()) {
?>
<h2 class="downloadTitle"><?php echo($Downloads->getColumnVal("ManufacturerName")); ?></h2>
<?php
$Downloads->moveNext();
}
$Downloads->moveFirst(); //return RS to first record
?>



so far so good.....

Now what I am trying to achieve is another repeat region within the above that, if 'DownloadManufacturer' from table 'download' is equal to 'ManPermalink' from table 'productmanufacturers' then it lists the records from 'download' in that repeat.

Am not sure what I need to do (either rs wise or nested repeat itself) - dont know if I can use the same rs Downloads and if so, how to structure the SELECT statment or if I need to create a new RS completely for the nested repeat but if thats the case, how to create the SELECT so that it is 'linked' to the original

Thanks

Jamie

I do this all the time... but Dreamweaver won't let you do it directly.

You have to:
1) Create your second recordset in Advanced mode with a where clause like: "WHERE DownloadManufacturer = ParamVal" and add a parameter named ParamVal and set its value to: $Downloads->getColumnVal("ManPermalink")
2) Add a repeat region below the existing one (Dreamweaver won't allow you to add it inside)
3) Manually move the second recordset into the the first repeated region
4) Manually move the second repeated region into the the first repeated region below the recordset

thanks Ray

am doing something wrong as that gives an error:

SELECT * FROM download WHERE download = ?

Unknown column 'download' in 'where clause'

I think it should be:
SELECT * FROM download WHERE DownloadManufacturer = ?

Update line 115 to:

$Downloads_Nested->bindParam("s", "-1", "". $Downloads->getColumnVal("ManPermalink"). ""); //ParamVal

Are you sure the column is named "ManPermalink" in the productmanufacturers table and DownloadManufacturer in the download table? And that the values are set correctly in the tables and match?
