Parse error: syntax error

<div class="fieldPair">
<div class="fieldGroup"> <span id="state_Spry">
<select class="formMenufield_Medium" name="state" id="state" tabindex="12" onblur="hideServerError('state_ServerError');">
<option value="value" <?php if (!(strcmp("value", (isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("custregistration","state"):"")))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>>-Select State-</option>
This is the error i am getting. any ideas?

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in C:\Website\Apache2\htdocs\puravidadivers\wwwroot\admin\cart\customers\cust_registration.php on line 387

here is the code around those lines:

<option value="<?php echo $row_Rs_States['StateID']?>" <?php if (!(strcmp("<?php echo $row_Rs_States['StateID']?>", (isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("custregistration","state"):"")))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>><?php echo $row_Rs_States['StateAbbrev']?></option>
</select>
<span class="selectRequiredMsg">Please select a value</span> </span>
<?php
if (ValidatedField('custregistration','custregistration')) {
if ((strpos((",".ValidatedField("custregistration","custregistration").","), "," . "10" . ",") !== false || "10" == "")) {
if (!(false)) {
?>
<span class="serverInvalidState" id="state_ServerError">Please select a value</span>




to me it seems this is the line with the problem it is right after 387:

]?>" <?php if (!(strcmp("<?php echo $row_Rs_States['StateID']?>", (isset($_GET["invalid"])?

ok

if i remove the following code the page will display properly:



<option value="<?php echo $row_Rs_States['StateID']?>" <?php if (!(strcmp("<?php echo $row_Rs_States['StateID']?>", (isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("custregistration","state"):"")))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>><?php echo $row_Rs_States['StateAbbrev']?></option>




<option value="<?php echo $row_RsCountry['CountryID']?>" <?php if (!(strcmp("<?php echo $row_RsCountry['CountryID']?>", (isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("custregistration","country"):"")))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>><?php echo $row_RsCountry['CountryAbbrev']?></option>

I think the problem may be in your strcmp, you have it like this:

php:
<option value="<?php echo $row_RsCountry['CountryID']?><?php if (!(strcmp("<?php echo $row_RsCountry['CountryID']?>", (isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("custregistration","country"):"") ))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>><?php echo $row_RsCountry['CountryAbbrev']?></option>



I think this should be like this instead:

php:
<option value="<?php echo $row_RsCountry['CountryID']?><?php if (!(strcmp("" $row_RsCountry['CountryID'] ."", (isset($_GET['invalid'])?ValidatedField("custregistration","country"):"") ))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>><?php echo $row_RsCountry['CountryAbbrev']?></option>



I removed the php block around the value in the strcmp and also add in some double quotes to concatenate the value. I also changes a couple of the double quotes around values to be single quotes. In php if you have a value that needs to be referenced in quotes that is not a string literal then you can using single quotes.

Hmmm

Eric,

You guys have been a great help but this is where people are getting frustrated. This is code the form builder wrote, I have not touched it. So far since buying form builder I have tried creating and modifing 6 forms. None of them have worked at all. Is there something that is a common user error that you think I could be doing to cause this?

your fix allows for the form to function but the dynamic menus for state and country will only dispaly 1 place not the whole list.

Sorry to jump in, but I have got the same error on multiple forms all because of code created by CSS Form Builder

Based on the code that you posted originally I would say that your form had the dynamic values specified for the select list before you applied CSS Form Builder to the form. If this is not the case please let me know.

I'm thinking that this is the case because this select list should have the dynamic attributes written out differently if it were applied after the fact. If you can confirm this for me I will do some testing here to try and determine some more specifics about this type of scenario and how the CSS Form Builder should handle these values compared to what it is doing now.

What it looks like to me is that the dynamic attributes were in place and when the form was recreated with form builder just the values were left. These values would have been correct on a page that had a dynamic list but there would also be a loop around the values so that you get them from all the records.

Please post back and confirm the details or let me know if the circumstances are different and I will investigate this further.

Sorry for the delay eric,

This is the case. I have benn going through my site and using form builder to update the look of the forms. This situation happens everytime there is dynamic data already there.

Thanks for confirming the details for me. I have logged a bug for this behavior so that it can be investigated further.

In the mean time as a workaround you should make sure to remove the dynamic properties of a select list in a form before applying form builder. Then after you apply form builder you can re-apply the dynamic values to the select lists.
