I know I'm not the only one that wondered about this bit, but here goes:


When we display the registered student information, do you want everything? And I mean, everything in the table, including address, all the phone numbers, etc?


PS: It won't affect what I've done so far, this is purely a cosmetic question.

Imagine a student phoning you.
"Hi, my name is Tjaart van der Walt. Did I pass?"
"No Tjaart, you did not. Or I think you did not. We have 10 Tjaart vd Walt's registered.... sorry, I have no way to know which Tjaart you are".

One cool suggestion (I love making cool suggestions smiling smiley ) is to maybe present his name and student number in black boldface (so it stands out) and the rest in a gray.... but that is an HTML issue. No extra marks though. It is for yourself.....!

Q is - what do you want? Of course, you can provide a link to "show more information" and then use iframes or ajax to "open" the information in the page without the page having to reload. Huh? What??? Get out of here! Not simple, but that's the fun, and late evenings, part. But totally optional.

And hey - your opening statement is too defensive - it is a perfectly valid question! Please don't fear this prac. If what is required in the prac works, then you'll pass (that is a major accomplishment - do not underestimate your newly-acquired skills!). I do not present this course to nail you, or to look down on you. Small steps. How good your PHP code is provides the final symbol. If I struggle, I will email you and ask you to fix what prevents the application from running, then remark. I'm here to make you love PHP smiling smiley

Thanks - I just wanted to make sure. I'll make it look awesome smiling smiley

I'm loving it totally, no fear of that. If you still like something after being immersed in it for almost a week without doing anything else, then you love it. My stuff works (as far as I can tell) its just the pretty things now.
