Master/Details page

I am trying to build a master/details page:

master:

<?php require_once('Connections/mitoWebsiteMSQLI.php'); ?>
<?php require_once('webassist/mysqli/rsobj.php'); ?>
<?php
//query lists all database records?>
<?php
$masterAllRecordset1 = new WA_MySQLi_RS("masterAllRecordset1",$mitoWebsiteMSQLI,10);
$masterAllRecordset1->setQuery("SELECT * FROM completedProjects");
$masterAllRecordset1->execute();
?>
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
<ul>
<?php
while(!$masterAllRecordset1->atEnd()) {
?>
<li><a href="details1.php?bymission_id=<?php echo($masterAllRecordset1->getColumnVal("mission_id")); ?>"><?php echo($masterAllRecordset1->getColumnVal("project_name")); ?></a></li>
<?php
$masterAllRecordset1->moveNext();
}
$masterAllRecordset1->moveFirst(); //return RS to first record
?>
</ul>
</body>
</html>

Details:

<?php require_once('Connections/mitoWebsiteMSQLI.php'); ?>
<?php require_once('webassist/mysqli/rsobj.php'); ?>
<?php
$details1Recordset1 = new WA_MySQLi_RS("details1Recordset1",$mitoWebsiteMSQLI,1);
$details1Recordset1->setQuery("SELECT * FROM completedProjects WHERE mission_id = ?");
$details1Recordset1->bindParam("i", "".(isset($_GET['bymission_id'])?$_GET['bymission_id']:"") ."", "-1"); //colname
$details1Recordset1->execute();
?>
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body
<?php echo($details1Recordset1->getColumnVal("project_name")); ?></body>
</html>

This is a simple Master/detail. I am having issues with the details page returning no value from the master page. It seems that the master page does go to the details page when the link is clicked, but no data is returned or printed to the page on the details page.
Please help me resolve this
Thank you.

the code for the body tag on the details page is off. edit:

php:
<body

<?php echo($details1Recordset1->getColumnVal("project_name")); ?></body>



to:

php:
<body>

<?php echo($details1Recordset1->getColumnVal("project_name")); ?></body>




Note the change of "<body" to "<body>".

Thank you for the correction. I have made the changes and started again.

Master:

<?php require_once('Connections/mitoWebsiteMSQLI.php'); ?>
<?php require_once('webassist/mysqli/rsobj.php'); ?>
<?php
$master2Recordset1 = new WA_MySQLi_RS("master2Recordset1",$mitoWebsiteMSQLI,10);
$master2Recordset1->setQuery("SELECT * FROM completedProjects ORDER BY project_name ASC");
$master2Recordset1->execute();
?>
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
<ul>
<?php
while(!$master2Recordset1->atEnd()) {
?>
<li><a href="details2.php?mission_id=<?php echo($master2Recordset1->getColumnVal("mission_id")); ?>"><?php echo($master2Recordset1->getColumnVal("project_name")); ?></a></li>
<?php
$master2Recordset1->moveNext();
}
$master2Recordset1->moveFirst(); //return RS to first record
?>
</ul>
</body>
</html>

Details:

<?php require_once('Connections/mitoWebsiteMSQLI.php'); ?>
<?php require_once('webassist/mysqli/rsobj.php'); ?>
<?php
$details2Recordset1 = new WA_MySQLi_RS("details2Recordset1",$mitoWebsiteMSQLI,1);
$details2Recordset1->setQuery("SELECT * FROM completedProjects");
$details2Recordset1->execute();
?>
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
<ul>
<li><?php echo($details2Recordset1->getColumnVal("client_name")); ?></li>
<li><?php echo($details2Recordset1->getColumnVal("project_name")); ?></li>
</ul>
</body>
</html>

The details data is showing for the first record only. When I click on the link from the masters page it will take me to the details page and list the first project, no matter what link I click on the masters list.

On the details page, you have not set a filter for the record set (you did have the filter correct on the first one). the record set needs to filter the mission_id column using the mission_id URL variable being passed in the link.

Jason,
Thank you very much. I have added the filter by URL in the details page to match URL param in the master page to "mission_id"(unique identifier) per your advice and it has worked.

master link:
<li><a href="details2.php?mission_id=<?php echo($master2Recordset1->getColumnVal("mission_id")); ?>"><?php echo($master2Recordset1->getColumnVal("project_name")); ?></a></li>

so the master page stays the same as previous step and the details page recordset reflects the filterby option in the Where statement. Correct?

<?php require_once('Connections/mitoWebsiteMSQLI.php'); ?>
<?php require_once('webassist/mysqli/rsobj.php'); ?>
<?php
$details2Recordset1 = new WA_MySQLi_RS("details2Recordset1",$mitoWebsiteMSQLI,1);
$details2Recordset1->setQuery("SELECT * FROM completedProjects WHERE mission_id = ? ORDER BY project_name ASC");
$details2Recordset1->bindParam("i", "".(isset($_GET['mission_id'])?$_GET['mission_id']:"") ."", "-1"); //colname
$details2Recordset1->execute();
?>
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
<ul>
<li><?php echo($details2Recordset1->getColumnVal("client_name")); ?></li>
<li><?php echo($details2Recordset1->getColumnVal("project_name")); ?></li>
</ul>
</body>
</html>
