Using PHP I will have a form with about 50 fields on it.
One way to get to the page/form is to search by item ID. If found the page will come up and the form will fill with existing data.
I would like to utilize the same page/form to "create" items.
What would be a good way to do this?
One way is to set each DB field to a variable and then populate the form using the variables. For "new" items I would simply set the variables to defaults (usually blank or empty).
Is this about the only way?
