Update Database When Form Input Contains Apostrophe?

Jan 21, 2011

I have created a form which pulls info from a mysql db, allowing user to edit the details by overtyping but I am tearing my hair out with a problem I am getting when the user enters an apostrophe. I will try to illustrate with a few select lines of code first.Form page code excerpt:

<form method="post" action="admin_confirm_edit.php">
<textarea name="newmaindesc" cols="70" rows="10"><?php echo $row[6]; ?>

How To Update Form Input Field Background Colour On Validation Error

Aug 22, 2007

I have been searching for form validation scripts for ages and all th ones that I like are far too complicated and inflexible so I decided to stick with my own which is easier to understand.

The only thing I don't like which i have seen on better form validation scripts is that and fields with errors are highlighted.  i can only presume that they have used php to set the background color of the input field or textarea.

How would I add some code to change the background colour of form elements if an error is found? Here is my code which validates the form but doesn't change form elements colours. Code:

Add Form To Joomla Database Using Apostrophe

Mar 7, 2010

I have a problem with adding information to a database using both mysql and Joomla. I know people don't normally bother with this but I want to know how to add an apostrophe to a field name that will allow this to be added to the mysql database. Making a code like this, will prob have to be added to the database.php file as it is where the insert statements are. I may be wrong.....just want to be corrected. It may also have to be where all the insert statements are outside of the database.php file too. There is a javascript like:


Whats the disadvantages of using mysql_real_escape_string, and where shall i put the stripslashes($user_name) when i display it back on a page or it will have the ""? as shown in line 2 above. Finally, another way i heard of is changing all they mysql insert statements to something like:

Code: [Select]$sql = "INSERT INTO mytable SET comments = '".mysql_real_escape_string($user_name)."'";

Select 'apostrophe' From Database To Display In Form's Field?

Oct 21, 2010

I used mysql_real_escape_string to insert a data with apostrophe, in the database, using php.But when I want to select this data and display it in a form's field, it does not work.What happens is that the data before the apostrophe is displayed in the field, but what is after the apostrophe is displayed outside of the field.Does mysql_real_escape_string only work for insert?

Here is my code:
$produpd = $_POST['id-uprod'];
$selectprod=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM products WHERE id='$produpd'");

JQuery - Store All Form Input Values In A Hidden Input?

Jan 29, 2011

I'm trying to create a interface with a conditional logic that will allow the webmaster to insert advertisments anywhere on the site.But before coding it, I need some advices from you :)The forms are handled trough jquery & ajax. When the "add another ad" button is pressed a new form is created with jQuery.My question is how could I gather all the form input values into a single hidden input that would look like:

<input name="ad[]" type="hidden" value="homepage,after_article,4,visitors" />

I think this value would be easier for me to handle in PHP.

Receive Input Over TCP / IP And Use It To Update HTML?

The server wants to push information to a client or broadcast to all, when an event happens - as opposed to the clients constantly polling the server "just in case". The client then updates a browser page display.

How do I do that? (toldya it was a n00b question)

Should I have a thread which receives info on a socket and then writes it to a database which the browser display (PHP) can process with an HTML refresh tag, or what?

Update Image With Data In Update Form

I think this is my last problem with this site. On the admin side of the site is a update form. All data updates fine when it is changed, however when selecting a new image, it doesn't upload or add the filename to the DB. I have tried combining two separate scripts but can't get it to work. My limited PHP knowledge wont let me adapt the code to make it work.

<?php require_once('Connections/xxxxxxxx.php'); ?>
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

Update Sort Order When Using Input Sequence?

Jul 12, 2011

I want to allow users to rearrange items by providing a number. So if there are 5 items

Id, Item, Display Order
1, Item a, 1
2, Item b, 2
3, Item c, 3
4, Item d, 4
5, Item e, 5

users get 5 input boxes and they can provide a number and click update to reorder the items. If user enters 125 as the new position in the above, it just sets it as the max (which is 5) and update the other items, if user enters -10, it just makes that item as 1 and update others. I just can't figure out how to update the order once the user submits the form.

Can't Update Sql Table With New Values From Input Field

Jun 2, 2010

I've checked in the FAQ code snippets section, w3chools, and googled quite a bit but still could not find what I needed.  I apologize in advance if it's there and I missed it -- I am still quite new to PHP and mySQL and may not have used the proper terminology in my searches.

I am using a form to edit mySQL data.  I am able to populate text box fields with information from the database, but I cannot get the altered text box data to update the mySQL table.  This is a code sample of what I've done: form.php

$info = mysql_query("SELECT name, color FROM people WHERE uid='3'");
Name: <input type="text" name="namefield" size="40" value="<? echo($info['name']); ?>" />
Favorite Color:  <input type="text" name="colorfield" size="40" value="<? echo($info['color']); ?>" />


mysql_query("DROP FROM people WHERE uid='3'");
mysql_query("INSERT INTO  people (name, color) VALUES ('$_POST[namefield]','$_POST[colorfield]');

The information in form.php shows up as it should, but my action.php is not able to change the values in the mySQL db. I don't think deleting the old data and then recreating the record with the new data is probably the best way to go, but it seemed the simplest. I feel like I'm missing something REALLY obvious but haven't been able to figure out what it is.

Replacing A Comma With Apostrophe Comma Apostrophe

Jul 4, 2011

It's probably not the right way, but it'll do for now. This is part of a query builder. I want to replace a comma with apostraphe comma apostraphe. in other words this......

city1, city2, city3


city1', 'city2', 'city3

Ultimately this is helping me build a dynamic query that will read..

Code: [Select]select * from table where city in ('city1','city2','city3')

the surrounding parens and apostraphes are in the whereclause[] statement, so I don't need them here. I've tried a multiple iterations, but they all end up looking similar to this, which obviously doesn't work...

Code: [Select]$city= preg_replace(",", "', '", $city);

Create A File Upload Form That Creates More Form Fields Based On Input?

Jun 5, 2011

I have have ten columns in my SQL table: id, imgid, urlid, image1, image2, image3, image4, image5, and comment. Id, imgid, and urlid are int type. Image[1-5] are mediumblob type. Url and comment are text type. Imgid is the number of images uploaded (max should be 5), urlid is the number of urls submitted (which should be one right now), url holds the url, and comment holds user comments.The form starts by asking the user how many images he wants to upload (max number is 5 in my script). If the user picks, for example, 3, then 3 file upload fields should be created with a new submit button too. A variable called $imgid will store the number 3 which is the number of files the user wants to upload. The user then picks 3 images and clicks the newly created submit button to submit the three images into the first three image columns in the SQL table. My problem is that when I click the second submit button which appears after you click the first one, I get this error:Warning: file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: Filename cannot be empty in dbpform2.php on line 75Here is what I have made so far:

<form action="dbpform2.php" method="POST">

Dreamweaver Form Validation And Redirect Them Back To The Form Page Without Comment Input To The Database

I post this solution to a form validation and redirect as an addition to a comment page written with dreamweaver. Unfortunately Dreamweaver does not provide server-side validation for php. You're expected to purchase an extension. My problem I have a comments page with a comment form. I wanted the comment input to a database if ok but if a user tried to input code or a link, I wanted to redirect them back to the form page without their comment input to the database. I also needed to work out where in the Dreamweaver written code to place my validation and redirect.

$editFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
$editFormAction .= "?" . htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);
if ((isset($_POST["MM_insert"])) && ($_POST["MM_insert"] == "comments"))
$comment = htmlentities($_POST['comment']);

Drupal Custom Node Form - Create An Input Form To Be Displayed For Registered Members (non-admin)?

Nov 5, 2009

I want to create an input form for registered user, separated from admin's content creation form. Each submission will create multiple node. To illustrate the case, I will use content type Project, and Review.

Project: Title, Description, Owner, Rating.

Review: Title, Reviewer, Project, Difficulty

I have setup the content types along with their fields using CCK modules. I want to create an input form to be displayed for registered members (non-admin). Its field includes Project Name, Description, Owner, Rating, Review, Difficulty.When the form is submitted, Project Name, Description, Owner, and Rating value goes into new Project node, where the rest goes into new Review node. Another customization that I would like to do is for Rating and Difficulty input field to use star rating input.What would be the best way to accomplish this? Should I create custom module and custom form ? Or is there any modules I could use?

It's going on a contract form, that we would like to auto-populate. Also is there a simple attachment code so individuals can attach documents to the code?

I'm inclined to use the URL somehow, but I've never approached it before.

Update Form Throws "Undefined Index" Error For Unchecked Radio Button Fields On Form

similar to that below.

Notice: Undefined index: fld_ONECHOICE in /usr/..../updateFORMFACT.php on

These fields are not required for the form to be completed.

Do I HAVE to default all fields to yes/no or some entry? Surely not.

Input Form

Jul 17, 2005

First question:

I have an input form that upon pressing a button validates the values
entered into this form. I am using the following code recall this form if
there is an error in one of the requested fields:

<form name="form1" method="post" action= "InputForm.php" >

All works fine. However, if there is an error and this form is recalled, all
the fields are blanked out when you are brought back to the form. I'd like
for the form to retain the values that had been entered. How do I do this?

Second question:

For the fields that are in error, I'd like for the titles for the fields to
display an asterisk and change the text to red. Have any of you done this
and if so how do you implement it?

Input Using The Same Form?

Dec 22, 2009

I have an 'exercise' log that I wanted to do as a project for myself and my mind, Basically it has the format: [checkbox] [txtbox - length] [txtbox - curweight]

And there are 31 sets boxes going down, named:

[did_or_not], [dec25len], [dec25weight]
[did_or_not], [dec26len], [dec26weight]

I know how to create a table to put them all in, but I want to come back to the table (page), say in a week, and update 2-3 tables at a time, if I couldn't before. What command can I use to update all? the table, rather than to (replace?/make a new one on submit?) Or does it update the table when I submit the form and overwrite the table anyway? The table will have standard incrementing ID's, with the three entries (did/didn't exercise, length, weight)
