    PHP Form with internal pages/id

    Hi anyone,

    First of all congratulations on this wonderful forum!

    Iím looking for a solution for a multipage php form . Iíd to know how to pass vars from a page to the other. Iíve tried using hidden fields and sessions but donít work. My problem is that pages are just ids inside in a single page.

    Iíd to make in any page that links to the next and in the last page a button to send the form (itís easy but I cannot get vars from previous pages, so it gives errors for blank fields.

    This is the code (Iíve dumb down it to understand better the problem):

    PHP Code:
    <?
    $id
    =$_GET[id];

    // ################### CONFIG ###################

    $class_txt "text";
    $class_inputbutton "inputButton";
    $class_inputline "inputLine";
    $class_inputfield "inputField";
    $style_inputline "width:355px;";
    $style_inputfield "width:355px;";

    // email
    $target_address "info@email.it";
    $email_subject "Oggetto";

    // error messages
    $err_name =    "name";
    $err_email "e-mail";
    $err_tit "title";

    // misc text
    $msg_date "Date";
    $msg_name "Name";
    $msg_email "Email:";
    $msg_tit "Title ";

    $txt_send "Send";
    $txt_mandatory "required";

    $msg_indent 11;

    // messages
    $txt_thankyou "<div class='$class_txt'><h2>Thank you!</h2></div>";
    $txt_error "<div style='color: #cc3300' class='$class_txt'><h2>Error! Check the follow fields:</h2>{errors}</div>";    // {errors} is replaced by the errors that occurred

    // ################ END  CONFIG #################

    function spaces($num$fill=" "){
        
    $foo="";
        for (
    $i=0$i<$num$i++) $foo.=$fill;
        return 
    $foo;
    }

    function 
    isValidEmail($addr){
        if(
    eregi("^[a-z0-9]+([_.-][a-z0-9]+)*@([a-z0-9]+([.-][a-z0-9]+)*)+\.[a-z]{2,4}$"$addr))
            return 
    true;
        else
            return 
    false;
    }


    // start form evaluation
    $error="foo";
    if (
    $_REQUEST['do']=="send"){
        
    $error=false;
        if (
    $_REQUEST['name']==""$error.="&raquo; $err_name<br>";                     
        if (
    $_REQUEST['tit']==""$error.="&raquo; $err_tit<br>";     


        if (!
    isValidEmail($_REQUEST['email'])) $error.="&raquo; $err_email<br>";
        if (
    $error===false){
        
            
    $message="$msg_date:".spaces($msg_indent-strlen($msg_date)).date("d M Y, H:i"time());
            if (
    $_REQUEST['name']) $message.="\n$msg_name:".spaces($msg_indent-strlen($msg_name)).$_REQUEST['name'];
            if (
    $_REQUEST['tit']) $message.="\n$msg_tit:".spaces($msg_indent-strlen($msg_tit)).$_REQUEST['tit'];        
          
    $message.="\n$msg_email:".spaces($msg_indent-strlen($msg_email))."mailto:".$_REQUEST['email'];
            
    $message.="\n\n$msg_request:\n\n".$_REQUEST['message'];
            
            
    mail($target_address$email_subject$message"From: ".$_REQUEST['email']);
            echo 
    $txt_thankyou;
            
        }else if (
    $error!==false$error=str_replace("{errors}"$error$txt_error);

    }

    if (
    $error!==false){

        if(
    $error!="foo") echo $error;
        
        
    // form
        
    echo "<script language='JavaScript' type='text/JavaScript'>\n";

        echo 
    "<form name='form1' method='post' action=''>\n";

    Here an example

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {
    $var $_POST['var'];
    echo 
    $var;
    //other codes you want
    } else {
    ?>
    <title>Example</title>
    <center><h1>Example</h1></center><br>
    <form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="post">
    <center><h3>Example var:</h3>
    <input type="text" name="var" maxlength="500"><br><br>
    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit">
    </center>
    </form>
    <?php
    }
    ?>
    Basicly you use a normal html form and use $_POST['inputname'] to get the var you use $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] to post to your own page and isset to know if you display the form or run the code.

    Just a bit more ::: $_(method of form)
    E.G
    <form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="post">
    means its in $_POST

    <form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="get">
    means its in $_GET

    OR the bad way
    $_REQUEST
    Is both $_GET and $_POST
    Working towards a Internet where we don't have website just browser applications Kill the Hyper-link and say hello to 3D Games in the browser :)
