POST values of dates not being transferred on new mysql_i page

POST values of dates not being transferred on new mysql_i page

Hi Ray

I've converted to mysql_i a page (1-add-several4.php) that allows several meetings to be generated. The data should then be post values on the next page - 1-add-several-insert.php page, but the values of the StartDate are not being transferred/generated.

My original pages, using mysql, work fine.

Is there something obvious?

When I click on the recordset in the bindings panel, I get the following error

MySQLi Error#: 1054

Unknown column 'p1' in 'field list'

Hope you can help.
Cheers
Chris

Some of your form elements have "readonly"... they won't be included in the form POST if they are marked as readonly. The easiest solution is to add hidden form elements with those same values as well and use those posted values on the second page.

Thanks Ray

The current page, using bootstrap 3, works fine with the readonly fields. I've tried removing the readonly attributes on the new pages - and the dates still aren't carried across.

Add this to the top of 1-add-several-insert4.php:

<?php
var_dump($_POST);
die();
?>

That will tell you if the form elements are properly posted to that page. Let me know what you find out. I don't see why the form elements wouldn't exist. Maybe it is something else.

Hi Ray

Sorry for the delay in replying.

The following is displayed when I add that code to the page:

array(10) { ["PgTitle"]=> string(12) "test meeting" ["BrDetails"]=> string(12) "jhg jhg jhg " ["MOinf"]=> string(0) "" ["rep1"]=> string(1) "1" ["StartDate"]=> string(16) "2019-10-07 19:30" ["HidStart"]=> string(16) "2019-10-07 19:30" ["MeetDuration"]=> string(8) "01:30:00" ["numbermeets"]=> string(1) "3" ["pt"]=> string(0) "" ["btnAddsev"]=> string(0) "" }

This is the same sort of result I get if I add the code to the current, mysql, page.

Cheers

The value of StartDate seems to be transferred to the page. So the issue has to be with the insert into the database. Is that where you found the problem? The value of that field is wrong? What value is inserted into the database?

Hi Ray

No, it's before it gets that far - the dates aren't displayed in the form field when the page loads.

If you want them populated from the post on the previous page, then you should use the posted form element values to set the values in the fields. It looks like they are set to recordset values currently.

The recordset calculates the start and end dates of several meetings, based on the POST values from the form. I think that's where the problem lies - the mysql version calculates things properly and it looks like the mysql_i version doesn't; the old page inserts the incremented dates from the recordset.

Then the problem is in the recordset not returning the data to populate the form element. Use this to see what SQL statement is being used:

<?php
echo($rsMeets->debugSQL());
?>

Then take that query and run it in PHPmyAdmin to see why it isn't returning the correct date values. Then you might be able to spot the problem or give me more information so that I can help.
