The tut is just to get you going. Use the book and the Internet for more.

Hi mac,i have a problem on the form validation page,i use textarea for the address field but somehow the value stored on this field does not display what has been entered like others do with this code
Language: PHP
<p>Enter your surname : <br><input type="text" name="surname" value="<?php echo $surname ?>" size="15"></p> <p>Enter your address : <br><textarea name="address" rows="5" cols="20" value="<?php echo $address ?>"></textarea></p>
.is there any difference between the text field and the textarea field.confused smiley

Put the value of the text area between the tags

Language: PHP
<p>Enter your address : <br><textarea name="address" rows="5" cols="20"><?php echo $address ?>"></textarea></p>



This is an HTML problem of course - not a PHP problem - that you should have mastered previously smiling smiley

Hi Mac,first i would to say thank you for that code,now my address field is fine.Mac do we have to just echo out the servers on page 204? bcuz if it is like that then is free10 marks for just typing.(Copy & Paste i like that)
Here is how i tryed id
Language: PHP
//-------------------------------------- server name and decription //--------------table------------------ echo "<tr bgcolor='white'><td>'AUTH_TYPE'</td><td>When running under Apache as module doing HTTP authenticated, this variable holds the authentication type.</td></tr>"; echo "<tr bgcolor='white'><td>'DOCUMENT_ROOT'</td><td>The document root directory under which the script is executing, as defined in the server's configuration file.</td></tr>";

Yes. And by retyping the description you are actually learning something.... if everything is printed, of course.

Totally agree with Mac, that's exactly how my lecturer taught me Java - by just retyping programs and try to understand what each line does.
ADVICE: don't ask your lil sister to do they typing though lol

I did it this way at first, just echoing out what I retyped from the textbook. Then I thought I might have misunderstood it, and am trying to echo the values of these variables.... but some of them just doesnt want to work, and searching on the internet didnt help much, except for one site but you need to be a $$$ paid member.

AUTH_TYPE is for example giving me an undeclared index error....

Click on Home button top left, then you will see a list of the years. Click on 2011 or what you want, and look for the ICT2613 forums. Go in there and read. Do not post there - they are now redundant.
Sorry, you do not have permission to post/reply in this forum.
