View Full Version : Editing Paypal Value using php

03-25-2010, 04:20 PM
Hi All,

My first post here.

I have created a cms so to speak. It uses a simple login system and ajax so that an admin can edit the text on the page, this then updates a html file that stores the text, and the actual page simply echos the html text.

If you navigate to:


You will see that the 7.50 price at the bottom is editable.

When this is edited, I of course need it to update the amount value in the paypal form.

The form is here:

<form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" style="float:left;padding-left:15px;">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_cart">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="info@moroccannatural.com">
<input type="hidden" name="lc" value="GB">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Rhassoul Clay 200g">
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="7.50">
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="GBP">
<input type="hidden" name="button_subtype" value="products">
<input type="hidden" name="shipping" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="add" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="bn" value="PP-ShopCartBF:btn_cart_LG.gif:NonHostedGuest">

<input type="image" style="outline:none;" src="cart.jpg" name="submit2" onmouseover="javascript:this.src='cart2.jpg';" onmouseout="javascript:this.src='cart.jpg';">

Here is the php that I think you will need to help :


$codeToBeEdited5 = file_get_contents('text5.html');

$idName5 = 'desc5';


$ajaxEditInPlace = new AjaxEditInPlace($codeToBeEdited5, 'showText');
echo $ajaxEditInPlace->getEditInPlaceCode($idName5);


I have tried lots of things such as

<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="<?php echo $idName5 ?> ">
Please help me!
