How do i get this code to select the row in the db i click on. There is a button in each row which pops up a map but it only pops up row 1. i tried somthing like select * from table where id='id' somthing like that but didnt work. Here is the code.


<?php
$link = mysql_connect('localhost','root', 'password');
if($link && mysql_select_db('nexodom_test'))
  {
  $sql = "select * from tblbasicform";
  $res = mysql_query($sql);
  $row = mysql_fetch_array($res);
 
  $addr =
  'http://maps.google.com/staticmap?center='.$row[latitude].','.$row[longitude].'&zoom=12&size=400x400&key=ABQIAAAAgnVrcDn5i-V_BsqvXy3j8RRle8Rt1EK93-n5qGMjk9aCuGqlpBQ2sCqItCc79KzQksp90dVmLGk45w';
 
header("Expires: Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:01 GMT");
header("Location: $addr");
 
//echo "We will call this URL: <b>$addr</b>";
//exit();
  }
 
echo 'Cannot connect to database';
?>

Try this change your openwindow java to send id variable..

Then select * from table where id = $id


<script language='javascript' type='text/javascript'>
<!--
function openWindow() {
 popupWin = window.open('popup.php?id=<?=$id?>', 'popup',
'width=550,height=400,resizable=no,scrollbars=yes,toolbar=no,screenX=0,screenY=0,Top=0,Left=0')
}
// -->
</script>

<script>

I don't understand what you want..

When user clicks the fomr button you open popup.php..

What should popup.php show ?

Google map with coordinates that you get from your databse ?

OK. i did something like that..

I needed to open a popup depending the button the user clicked.

In your case you need to send the id of the database row you want to get the coordinates, right ?

Didn't test the code..but..


<?php  require_once("includes/db_connection.php"); ?>
 
<html>
 
<body onLoad="load()" onUnload="GUnload()" >
<table width="802" border="1" align="center" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" bordercolor="#000000">
  <tr>
    <td colspan="2" bgcolor="#0099FF"><p> </p>
    <p align="center" class="style1">Nexodom.com</p>
    <p> </p></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td width="102" height="318" align="left" valign="top"><p><a href="index.html">Home</a><br>
        <a href="wifi.php">WIFI Hot Spots</a></p>
    </td>
    <td width="674" align="left" valign="top"><p align="center">WIFI Hot Spot List</p>
 
<?php
 
$sql = "SELECT * from tblbasicform";
$res = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
 
echo "<table border=2>";
echo "<tr> <td>Name</td><td>Email</td><td>Buissnes Name</td><td>Location</td><td>Latitude</td><td>Longitude</td> <td>Free or Paid</td><td>New</td></tr>";
while($row = MYSQL_FETCH_ARRAY($res))
{
$id = $row['id'];
?>
<script language='javascript' type='text/javascript'>
<!--
function openWindow<?=$id?>() {
 popupWin = window.open('popup.php?id=<?=$id?>', 'popup','width=550,height=400,resizable=no,scrollbars=yes,toolbar=no,screenX=0,screenY=0,Top=0,Left=0')
}
// -->
</script>
<?
echo "<form method=post name=pop$id>";
echo "<tr><td>".$row['name']."</td>";
echo "<td>".$row['email']."</td>";
echo "<td>".$row['buissnes_name']."</td>";
echo "<td>".$row['location']."</td>";
echo "<td>".$row['latitude']."</td>";
echo "<td>".$row['longitude']."</td>";
echo "<td>".$row['type']."</td>";
echo "<form>";
echo "<td><input type=\"button\" onClick=\"openWindow$id(); return false;\" value=\"Pop Up Map\">";
echo "</td></tr>";
echo "</form>";
 
}
?>
 
 
 
 
</table><br>
<a href="userform.php">Submit a WIFI hotspot</a>

Of course in popup.php you must do another select * from table where id = $id

You might need to do first: $id = $_GET['id'];

and then redirect with the coordinates you retrieve from database
