The following code works fine, BUT for the combo box (<select>), I want wateva is the variable $filename to be put first in the combo box and all the other files listed afterwards.... at the moment, it just does it in alphabeticall order...

$dir = opendir('/newusers/bja/');

echo '<select onClick="location.href=\'index.php?filename=\'+this.options[this.selectedIndex].text;">'."\n";

while ($file = readdir($dir))
{
if ((($file != '.')&&($file != '..')&&(filetype($file)=='file')))
{
echo '<option>'.$file."</option>\n";
}
}

echo "</select>\n";

closedir($dir)

Thankyou :)

hi,

<?

$dir = opendir('/newusers/bja/');

echo '<select onClick="location.href=\'index.php?filename=\'+this.options[this.selectedIndex].text;">'."\n";
if($_GET["filename"]) {
  echo "<option>$filename</option>\n";
}
while ($file = readdir($dir)) {
  if ((($file != '.')&&($file != '..')&&(filetype($file)=='file'))) {
    if($file != $_GET["filename"]) {
      echo "<option>$file</option>\n";
    }
  }
}
echo "</select>\n";

closedir($dir);

?>

how do you mean exactly? do you mean not put the file in the combo box at all? if so you want to remove the following lines:

if($_GET["filename"]) {
  echo "<option>$filename</option>\n";
}

<?

$dir = opendir('/newusers/bja/');

$thispage = explode("/", $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]);
$countpage = count($thispage) - 1;
$page = $thispage[$countpage];
echo '<select onClick="location.href=\'index.php?filename=\'+this.options[this.selectedIndex].text;">'."\n";
if($_GET["filename"]) {
  echo "<option>$filename</option>\n";
}
while ($file = readdir($dir)) {
  if ((($file != '.')&&($file != '..')&&(filetype($file)=='file'))) {
    if($file != $_GET["filename"]) {
      if($file != $page) {
        echo "<option>$file</option>\n";
      }
    }
  }
}
echo "</select>\n";

closedir($dir);

I just relised that, the code u have doesn't actually check the url of the file its self (eg. $page = index.php), i need it to check the entire URL to that file and if it is, don't display it :)

Thankyou

that's what this part does:

$thispage = explode("/", $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]);
$countpage = count($thispage) - 1;
$page = $thispage[$countpage];

$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"] holds the name of path information of the page e.g /admin/index.php. explode splits this string by "/" into an array, and after counting the number of elements in the array, $page stores the last element which should be the filename. the line if($file != $page) { checks that the file being put in the select box is not the same as the current page. that's the theory at least, i assume you posted because it's not working so i'll test it now and try and fix it

if i put:

http://website.com?filename=index.php

in the url, it works...

BUT, if you put http://website.com?filename=/newusers/bja/index.php

it doesn't detect it as the same file!?

How can i fix this...

Thankyou

sorry i was using the filename itself rather than the variable filename..

change:

$thispage = explode("/", $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]);

to:

$thispage = explode("/", $_GET["filename"]);

I think you were a bit confused, but i figured it out anyway :P

if($_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]."/".$file !=  $_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"].$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"])

Thankyou for your help, i'm accepting ur response :)
