Hi,
I have this users profile page, where users can update their information.
What I've been trying to do is to get the username and phone number fields to check to see that they are not left empty, if left empty no update is done and the form shows an error message.

Here's the code:

<?php

if($_GET['success'] == 1 )
      {
            echo "<div style=\"font-weight: bold; color: #e80404; display: block; background-color: #ffffff; padding: 3px 3px 3px 3px; width: 190px;\">Profiilin muokkaus onnistui.</div>";
            echo "<br />";
      }
?>


<?php
//spostiosoitteen validointi
function validateemail($fieldname)
{
if(preg_match("/^[a-zA-Z0-9\-]+(\.[a-zA-Z0-9\-]+)*@([a-zA-Z0-9]*\.)+([a-zA-Z]{2,4})$/i",$fieldname))
          return TRUE; //jos validi spostiosoite palautetaan TRUE
     else
         return FALSE;
}

function getErrorMessages($aErrors)
{

    // This is where you can set an appropriate error message for different errors. Translate as you wish.

    $aErrorMessages = array();
    foreach ($aErrors as $sError) {
         switch ($sError) {
             case "EMPTY_FIELDS":
                  $aErrorMessages[] = "Et t&auml;ytt&auml;nyt kaikkia kentti&auml;, yrit&auml; uudelleen.";
                  break;
         }
    }
        return $aErrorMessages;
}

//Puhelinnumeron validointi toimii samalla tavalla kun spostivalidointi

function validatenro($fieldname) {
if(preg_match("/^[0-9\ ]+([0-9\-]{6,7})$/i",$fieldname))
             return TRUE;
     else
         return FALSE;
}

$color1 = '#f9f3e9';
$color2 = '#e3c795';

?>

<?php

$result=mysql_query("select * from users WHERE users_id = '".$_SESSION[users_id]."'");
?>
<?
// Fetch record rows in $result by while loop and put them into $row.
$datarow_count = 0;
while($row=mysql_fetch_assoc($result))
{
  $datarow_color = ($datarow_count % 2) ? $color1 : $color2;
  $datarow_count++;

</div>

I've tried using this function:
function getErrorMessages($aErrors)

and doing a :

$aErrors = array();     // Array that keeps track of errors

     // Check if values are not empty

     if ($username_ == "" || $phone_ == "")
         {
             $aErrors[] = "EMPTY_FIELDS";
         }

but this is not working, this works on all my other forms but not here.. could it have something to do with the while loop?

Thanks in advance.

but where is the function getErrorMessages called? i don't see it anywhere before processing the POST data

try changing:
if($_POST['Submit'])
to:
if( $_POST['Submit'] && $_POST["username_".$row[users_id]] && $_POST["username_".$row[users_id]] != '' && $_POST["puh_".$row[users_id]] && $_POST["puh_".$row[users_id]] != '' )

The function looks the following way and it's located at the top of the first post:

function getErrorMessages($aErrors)
{

    // This is where you can set an appropriate error message for different errors. Translate as you wish.

    $aErrorMessages = array();
    foreach ($aErrors as $sError) {
         switch ($sError) {
             case "EMPTY_FIELDS":
                  $aErrorMessages[] = "Et t&auml;ytt&auml;nyt kaikkia kentti&auml;, yrit&auml; uudelleen.";
                  break;
         }
    }
        return $aErrorMessages;
}

And tried your suggestion, but didn't work?

i know where the function is defined, but the function is never used in the code that you posted

sorry, $row doesn't exist yet at if($_POST['Submit'])

instead, alter this line:
if (isset($_POST["chk_".$row[users_id]]))
to
if ( isset($_POST["chk_".$row[users_id]]) && isset($_POST["username_".$row[users_id]]) && $_POST["username_".$row[users_id]] != '' && isset($_POST["puh_".$row[users_id]]) && $_POST["puh_".$row[users_id]] != '' )

Hi, sorry for the answer delay, so you mean the function is never used,  this is how I have setup it up at the moment.. but the function is not working here:

<?php
//spostiosoitteen validointi
function validateemail($fieldname)

          return TRUE; //jos validi spostiosoite palautetaan TRUE
     else
         return FALSE;
}

function getErrorMessages($aErrors)
{

    // This is where you can set an appropriate error message for different errors. Translate as you wish.

    $aErrorMessages = array();
    foreach ($aErrors as $sError) {

it's the same thing

all i see you do is define the validateemail function without ever actually calling it

  // print error
}
else
{
  // do stuff
}
