View Full Version : relative linking in php

03-13-2008, 01:59 AM
i am using a self submitting for using php
<form action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?>" method="POST" id="test2" name="registrationform">

the registration page starts with a lot of terms and other details about the registration and then the form fields for the user to fill the registration page. i have used php to validate the form, presently when a user clicks the submit button and if there are any validateions that need to be displayed to the user, then the user has to scroll from the top of the page all the way till they see the form elements with the validation message ex= Please enter your phone number.

my question is, as in html with relative linking ex
<a href="#link1"> click here</a>

<a name="link1"> </a>
Text here

the page can be moved to an exact location, can this be done more or less close to this relative linking using php so that the user need not scroll from the top of the page to see the validation message.

NOTE = since i am using a self submitting form just before the first form element i have created a blank table row and in

this table row the php validation message would appear if the user missed out some information. due to this the user has to scroll from the top of the page to see the php generated validation message. if i use the same php validation at the very top of the page the error message will be at the top and the form fields at the bottom and the user will have to scroll up and
down to read the validation message.

please advice.
