Inserting updated values in mysql database

Hello Experts,

I am displaying the query results like below on php page....
From mysql there were two rows resulted which is displaying as per the code below...
echo "<tr class=\"d" . ($i & 1) . "\">
                        <td><input class=textboxa type=text style=\"font-style: Italic;font-weight: bold;\" value=\"$i\" /><br/></td>
                        <td><input name=test_$i class=textboxc type=text style=\"font-style: Italic;font-weight: bold;\" value=\"" . $row['Delivery'] . "\" title=Delivery /><br/></td>
                        <td><input name=subtest_$i class=textboxc type=text style=\"font-style: Italic;font-weight: bold;\" value=\"" . $row['quality'] . "\" title=quality /><br/></td></tr>";

Open in new window


If user updates the value in one of the input type text...i would like to updated that value in database.

Can you suggest how to updates the values in mysql where $_POST['test'] this test will might be test_1 or test_2 and so on...

Thanks,
Shail

Rather than keeping the variable as test_$i, keep it as keep[$i] as array.. iN that way your variable name will be same and key alone will change..

So in submit handler you can handle as

for($i=0;$i<count($_POST['test']);$i++){
$_POST['test'][$i] will have the value for you
}

Hello Expert,

In php i kept name="test[]" and in the POST

for($i=0;$i<count($_POST['test']);$i++){
$test = $_POST['test'][$i] ;
echo "$test";
}
However, this is throwing an error message as "Notice: Undefined index: test in info_r2b.php on line 1"

Can you suggest what's gone wrong in this?

Thanks,
Shail

Hello Shail, you must give a name test[] to all of your inputs in order to make ShaileshShindes solution to work.

echo "<tr class=\"d" . ($i & 1) . "\">
                        <td><input class=textboxa type=text style=\"font-style: Italic;font-weight: bold;\" value=\"$i\" /><br/></td>
                        <td><input name=test[] class=textboxc type=text style=\"font-style: Italic;font-weight: bold;\" value=\"" . $row['Delivery'] . "\" title=Delivery /><br/></td>
                        <td><input name=test[] class=textboxc type=text style=\"font-style: Italic;font-weight: bold;\" value=\"" . $row['quality'] . "\" title=quality /><br/></td></tr>";
