redirect url with DataAssist Insert

redirect url with DataAssist Insert

I am using DataAssist Insert Record to insert my basic product information. I have the redirect url set to redirect to my options page to add the options for that basic product that was entered. What I cannot figure out is how to pass additional information with the url. I need to pass the make and model to the redirected page to populate certain text and list menus.

$WA_redirectURL = "AddWheelOptions.php?Rims_RimID=<?php echo $row_rsProducts['Rims_RimID']; ?>"; will not work like it does on my other pages.

$WA_redirectURL = "AddWheelOptions.php?Rims_RimID=$row_rsProducts['Rims_RimID']"; will not work either.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

First of all, you don't need those PHP echo commands... you are already inside a PHP block.

As far as getting it to work, you will need to concatenate the result because remember that PHP does not like quotes around numbers. To simplify the code within the redirect, I actually like to store the database result in a separate variable like this:

$idnumber = $row_rsProducts['Rims_RimID'];

$WA_redirectURL = "AddWheelOptions.php?Rims_RimID=".$idnumber."";

The period is the concatenation operator and means to combine the strings that are separated by it, processing each concatenated element individually before combining. This is important because it allows for numbers to remain numbers rather than text strings.

You could just concatenate the recordset result in the same place if you don't want to store it as a separate variable.
