Javascript - Fill text value from radio button select

This is a combination of 2 questions previously asked.

I want the selection of one radio button to add a mysql query to the text box below. I've gotten to the point that one query (#2), while filling the input > text > value of the php/html source, does not appear in the text box.

The further issue is how the query gets processed by php and then mysql. At this point , the 2nd query reports 1065, empty query, after inserting and submitting the code below thru the php script. The same code, returns 19 rows in phpMyAdmin.

.
SELECT a.email1, a.empNum, b.runTime FROM User a, NonRev_Check_in b WHERE b.runTime LIKE '%11-14%' AND a.empNum = b.empNum

Here's a shortened version of the php script.

$query_1 = "SELECT email1 FROM User WHERE empNum = 354";
$query_2 = "SELECT a.email1, a.empNum, b.runTime FROM User a, NonRev_Check_in b WHERE b.runTime LIKE '\%11-14\%' AND a.empNum = b.empNum";
$query_3 = "SELECT email1, listingPhone FROM User WHERE empNum = 354";

if ( $_POST['submit']
{
   $connect = mysql_connect ( $host, $db_user, $db_password );
   mysql_select_db ( $database );

   if ( isset ( $_POST['query'] ) )
   {
      $query = mysql_real_escape_string ( $_POST['query'] );
   }
   echo $query . "<br />";
}

<form name="query" action="/admin/email.php" method="post">
   <input type="radio" name="que" onclick="if(this.checked)document.getElementById('query').value='<?php print $query_1 ?>';" /> Email &nbsp;
   <input type="radio" name="que" onclick="if(this.checked)document.getElementById('query').value='<?php print $query_2 ?>';" /> Check-in &nbsp;
   <input type="radio" name="que" onclick="if(this.checked)document.getElementById('query').value='<?php print $query_3 ?>';" /> Phone &nbsp;
   <br />
   Query: &nbsp; 
   <input type="text" id="query" size="50" name="query" value="" />
   <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" />
</form>

Your second query should be like this

$query_2 = "SELECT a.email1, a.empNum, b.runTime FROM User a, NonRev_Check_in b WHERE b.runTime LIKE \'\%11-14\%\' AND a.empNum = b.empNum";

Single quotes in the query must be escaped or it will break generated html code

From looking at your code it looks correct. Try moving the semi-colon from the 3 lines starting with

   <input type="radio" name="que" onclick="if(this.checked)document.getElementById('query').value='<?php print $query_1 ?>';" /> Email &nbsp

move the ; so it should look like this:

   <input type="radio" name="que" onclick="if(this.checked)document.getElementById('query').value='<?php print $query_1; ?>'/>" Email &nbsp

I moved the semi colon to the end of the print statement so it should run properly. I also change the location of your closing /> at the end of the input field. Anyway, do that to all 3 line of code and try it again.

<?php
print $query_1;
?>

Hello,

Find no way to escaping illegal character problem that found in your 2ed query,

except this way :

<?php
$query_1 = "SELECT email1 FROM User WHERE empNum = 354";
$query_2 = "SELECT a.email1, a.empNum, b.runTime FROM User a, NonRev_Check_in b WHERE a.empNum = b.empNum AND b.runTime LIKE";
$query_3 = "SELECT email1, listingPhone FROM User WHERE empNum = 354";

if ( $_POST['submit'])
{
   $connect = mysql_connect ( $host, $db_user, $db_password );
   mysql_select_db ( $database );

   if ( isset ( $_POST['query'] ) )
   {
      $query = mysql_real_escape_string ( $_POST['query'] );
   }
   echo $query . "<br />";
}
?>
<script>
var test = "'% 11-14 %';";
</script>
<form name="query" action="" method="post">
    <input type="radio" name="que" onclick="if(this.checked)document.getElementById('query').value='<?php print $query_1; ?>'" > Email &nbsp;
    <input type="radio" name="que" onclick="if(this.checked)document.getElementById('query').value='<?php print $query_2; ?>'+test" > Check-in &nbsp;
    <input type="radio" name="que" onclick="if(this.checked)document.getElementById('query').value='<?php print $query_3; ?>'" > Phone &nbsp;
   <br />
   Query: &nbsp; 
   <input type="text" id="query" size="50" name="query" value="" />
   <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" />
</form>

Of course, it's not a professional way but since you are viewing your queries for users, so I assume that it's a good way for you and doing what you want.

@elvin66,

Your suggestion didn't change the non-visible #2 query. I didn't follow it with the multiple single and double quotes. The suggestion seems to put them out of order, at the end of the javascript in the input tag.

@Prograministrator,

The end of the query (for #2) is now: .....LIKE [object HTMLInputElement]

Thanks to both for suggestions.

The issue is the % in the query.

I am still looking for an solution and then on to whether the mysql query works.

This is working code
<?php
$query_1 = "SELECT email1 FROM User WHERE empNum = 354";
$query_2 = "SELECT a.email1, a.empNum, b.runTime FROM User a, NonRev_Check_in b WHERE b.runTime LIKE \'\%11-14\%\' AND a.empNum = b.empNum";
$query_3 = "SELECT email1, listingPhone FROM User WHERE empNum = 354";


if ( $_POST['submit'])
{
	$host = 'localhost'; $db_user = 'root'; $db_password = '';
	$database = 'test';
   $connect = mysql_connect ( $host, $db_user, $db_password );
   mysql_select_db ( $database );

   if ( isset ( $_POST['query'] ) )
   {
      $query = mysql_real_escape_string ( str_replace("\'", "'", $_POST['query'] ));
   }
   echo $query . "<br />";
}
?>
<form name="query" action="?" method="post">
