Ok, I'm feeling extremely dense here.
I'm using YUI. I downloaded the library and examples.
Their example for inline editing is pulling it's data from a flat file. I spent about 4 hours reading and trying things but I can't figure out how the query to get the full table data and then post back single fields works.
I think if I could see a code sample using YUI and php and a table in MySQL I could go from there. I think I'm understanding the principle but I haven't seen the actually queries and how they are called.
for instance how could I duplicate http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/examples/datatable/inlineediting.html
assuming the data came from "tablea"
assuming the query to get the table data is
ion FROM tablea WHERE blah=blah"
and the update db code snip is
$fieldname = $_GET(THEFIELDBEINGUPDATED
$content = $_GET(THEDATATOUPDATE)
$sku = $GET_(THEPRIMARYKEYROWID)
UPDATE tablea SET $fieldname = $content WHERE sku = $sku
And I'm only guessing at it being a $_GET. Is that correct?
