echo recordset name

Hey Ray

I have on all cms pages the meta title and descrioption which the user can update themselves. The only thing that changes in the code is the recordset name

<input id="MetaTitle" name="MetaTitle" type="text" maxlength="70" value="<?php echo($WADAblog->getColumnVal("MetaTitle")); ?>"/>



I want to be able to use the input code as an include/plugin so wouold therefore need to somehow change the recordset name $WADAblog within the echo statement within the input but not sure if it is possible to do that or indeed how you would echo the name of the recordset in this way

Cheers

Jamie

You could set the recordset to another value above the plugin code on the top of the page like:

php:
<?php

$WADAblog 
$Recordset1;
// plugin code on the top of the page here
?>

sorry, I dont think that would work.Probably havent explained it terribly well.

so

<input id="MetaTitle" name="MetaTitle" type="text" maxlength="70" value="<?php echo($WADAblog->getColumnVal("MetaTitle")); ?>"/>

would be used if the recordset on the page was named $WADAblog whilst on a different page where the recordset is named $WADAtestimonials the input would look like this:

<input id="MetaTitle" name="MetaTitle" type="text" maxlength="70" value="<?php echo($WADAtestimonials->getColumnVal("MetaTitle")); ?>"/>



So am just wondering if there is a way to determine what the recordset name is and then echo whatever it is in the value?

Your include would just have something like:

<input id="MetaTitle" name="MetaTitle" type="text" maxlength="70" value="<?php echo($MetaRS->getColumnVal("MetaTitle")); ?>"/>



Then you can set which recordset to use on the top of the page when the recordset is defined like:

php:
<?php

$MetaRS 
$WADAblog;
?>
