Creating a Simple Content system (Viewing records in expanding table view)

Hi all,

The second issue would be to dynamically display the contents of my update table with expanding tables, when the cell with the updateinfo and date is clicked the description would be shown.

So heres the problem, I have little PHP MySQL knowledge. The application I am developing is in vb to show updates on software I publish on the network and general information to all users at logon, I have a webcontrol that is going to contain the finished output.

I am looking for some help to put together 3 parts, so 3 questions.

1. Just a simple add record form to MySQL db, 4 fields in the table(Updates).

Date   UpdateName Description   ID

2. Show the contents of the the updates in table form ie using expanding tables, the title click expands the description.

Start Menu Changes(UpdateName)                    23/03/07(Date)
blah blah blah.........................................................(Description)
Desktop Changes(UpdateName)                        22/03/07(Date)
blah blah blah.........................................................(Description)
Application Changes(UpdateName)                    21/03/07(Date)
blah blah blah.........................................................(Description)

3. Just a simple remove record form to MySQL db, 4 fields in the table(Updates).

Many Thanks
Steve

To retreive your results and display them in a table:

<?PHP

$get_all_data = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM table");  // get all db data, if any
$count_all_data = mysql_num_rows($get_all_data);  // count all the db data

// if there is data in the db
if ($count_all_data > 0) {

      // create a table
      echo ("<br/>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Below is a list of all current data ...<br /><br />");
      echo ("<table width='90%' align='center'><tr><td><font color='#FF0000'>Col1</font></td><td><font color='#FF0000'>Col2</font></td><td><font color='#FF0000'>Col3</font></td><td><font color='#FF0000'>Col4</font></td><td><font color='#FF0000'>Col5</td></tr>");

      //while there is more data in the db
      while($rows = mysql_fetch_array($get_all_data)) {
            // display that data [col1], [col2] etc are your table field names
            echo ("<tr><td>") . $rows[col1] . ("</td><td>") . $rows[col2] . ("</td><td>") . $rows[col3] . ("</td><td>") . $rows[col4] . ("</td><td>") . $rows[col5] . ("</td>");
      }

      // close the table
      echo ("</tr></table><br /><br />");

}

?>

You will obviously need to include your DB connection code aswell.

CREATE TABLE `record` (

  `Date` date NOT NULL,
  `UpdateName` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
  `Description` text NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`ID`)
);



*/

$db_name = "test";

$db = mysql_connect("localhost","root","qazplm");
mysql_select_db($db_name,$db);

if($_POST["op"]=="Add") {

      mysql_query("INSERT INTO record SET Date=now(), UpdateName='".$_POST["UpdateName"]."', Description='".$_POST["Description"]."'");


}

if($_POST["op"]=="Delete" && $_POST["del"]){

      
      $i=0;
      
      foreach($_POST["del"] as $value) {
      
            if($i==0) {
            
                  $str = " WHERE ID=".$value;
                  
            }else{
            
                  $str .= " OR ID=".$value;
            }            
            
      
            $i++;
      }
      
      $q = "DELETE FROM record ".$str;
      
      
      mysql_query("DELETE FROM record ".$str) or die(mysql_error());


}

      $get_record = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM record ORDER by Date");

Many Thanks for that Seth

Just a quick question tough, how would i go about displaying the expanding tables in their own page? and can it be done where the cell click expands the row?

Thanks
