p.warn	{ color: red; font-weight: bold; }

</style>

</head>
 

<body>
 

<?php

	}
 

	function print_footer() {

?>

</body>

</html>
 

<?php

	}
 

	function pretty_print($string) {

		return ucfirst(str_replace("_", " ", $string));

	}
 

	function make_safe($array) {

		foreach($array as $var => $val) {

			$array[$var] = mysql_real_escape_string($val);

		}
 

		return $array;

	}
 

	function get_table_fields($table) {

		$result = mysql_query("SHOW FIELDS FROM $table;");
 

		$rows = array();
 

		while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {

			// if we're reading the primary key, skip it

			if ($row["Extra"] == "auto_increment") continue;
 

			$this_row = $row;
 

			if (stripos($row["Type"], "char") !== false) {

				$this_row["Type"] = "char";

			} else if (stripos($row["Type"], "text") !== false) {

				$this_row["Type"] = "text";

			} else if (stripos($row["Type"], "int") !== false) {

				$this_row["Type"] = "int";

			}
 

			$rows[$row["Field"]] = $this_row;

		}
 

		return $rows;

	}
 

	function validate_form($form, $table) {

		$problems = array();
 

		$fields = get_table_fields($table);
 

		if (count($form) != count($fields)) {

			$problems[] = "Fatal error.";

			return $problems;

		}
 

		foreach($fields as $name => $info) {

			if (!isset($form[$name])) {

				$problems[] = "Fatal error with $name.";

				return $problems;

			}
 

			if ($info["Null"] == "NO") {

				// this field must be provided!

				if (trim($form[$name]) == "") {

					$problems[$name] = "This field must be completed.";

				}

			}

		}
 

		return $problems;

	}
 

	function show_table_links($table) {

		$name = pretty_print($table);
 

		echo "<h1>$name</h1>";

		echo "<p><a href=\"create.php?type=$table\">New</a> | <a href=\"edit.php?type=$table\">Edit</a></p>";

					mysql_query($query);
 

					header("location: index.php");

					exit;

				}

			}

		}
 

		echo "<form method=\"post\">";
 

		foreach($fields as $field) {

			$pretty_name = pretty_print($field["Field"]);
 

			if (isset($_POST[$table][$field["Field"]])) {

				// value submitted already!

				$value = $_POST[$table][$field["Field"]];

Basically you'll need to create a process page for deleting a row by the ID;
therefore, on your output function you will need a new link to delete.php.
looks like you are linking to edit.php already.

Did you add the edit.php link?
                echo "<h1>$name</h1>";

                echo "<p><a href=\"create.php?type=$table\">New</a> | <a href=\"edit.php?type=$table\">Edit</a></p>";

With your edit.php
READ the current roq and PREFILL the inputs with this data
Then,
You will need to run the SQL after sumbiting the new input information from edit.php
UPDATE table_name SET column_name = value [, column_name = value ...] [WHERE condition]

===

With your delete.php
You will need to run the SQL code on opening delete.php
DELETE FROM table_name [WHERE condition]
SQL Statement Syntax:
 

UPDATE table_name SET column_name = value [, column_name = value ...] [WHERE condition]
 

DELETE FROM table_name [WHERE condition]
