Dynamic number of results in search form

Hi Ray

I have a search page which works fine. I'd like to add a elect list where the user can specify the max number of results to be returned in a page.

I notice that the first line of the recordset specifies this:

$WADAresults = new WA_MySQLi_RS("WADAresults",$connDB_i,50);

in this case, 50 records.

I've noticed that other form fields use code such as

echo((isset($_GET["S_FirstName"]))?$_GET["S_FirstName"]:"")

to display the searched criteria.

I've tried to combine the two, without success - is it possible, so it's something like:

$WADAresults = new WA_MySQLi_RS("WADAresults",$connDB_i,echo((isset($_GET["Display"]))?$_GET["Display"]:""));

Is there a better way?

Many thanks

Chris

The correct syntax would be:

php:
$WADAresults = new WA_MySQLi_RS("WADAresults",$connDB_i,((isset($_GET["Display"]))?$_GET["Display"]:50));

Thanks Ray

I'll try that - just discovered the Search dialog box comes up empty when I try to edit it! Think I'll need to try an uninstall and reinstall!

Cheers

No change - still blank. When I uninstalled, it froze after restarting, on 'Step2 removing files - maybe they're causing the problem?

Is there a folder I can delete to start again?

Cheers

Yes. You don't really have to remove it if you are just reinstalling anyway. If you want you can always delete your user configuration folder and start completely fresh.

Thanks Ray - I'll leave it for another day; too busy to uninstall DW and start from scratch! It only seems to be the search option that freezes.
