My $_POST variable works only for the first page.

3 New Member
I have written a form in with radio buttons the name is set to orderby and the value is set to KundeVorName and the next value is KundeNachName and it goes so on. I wanna modify my query according this values. It works well for the first page but at the second it looses its value and gives me an error message. When i hard code it like "Select * from Kunde ORDER BY KundeVorName" it works for all pages when i use my variable $orderby it works just for the first page. here is my code:

Heya, Mesut. Welcome to TSDN!

Um... that's a lot of code you just dumped there. And most of it really isn't relevant to your problem at all.

You might want to save your POST variables in the session. Take a look at this thread.

I am really a newbie, i did not get the answer i have modified most of the scripts now i a m stucked up, i dont know how to modify
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. foreach($_POST as $k => $v)
  2. {
  3. $_SESSION[$k] = $v;
  4. }

We've all been there. No problem ^_^

First off, you need to make one change:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. //  Add this line, or else nothing will work properly:
  2. session_start();
  4. foreach($_POST as $k => $v)
  5. {
  6. $_SESSION[$k] = $v;
  7. }
Alrightey. What this code does is run through $_POST and copy the values in $_POST to $_SESSION.

To be more verbose, for each element in $_POST, we assign the key (e.g., 'orderby') to $k and the value (e.g., 'KundeVorName') to $v. Then we set $_SESION[$k] to $v ($_SESSION['orderby'] = 'KundeVorName') .

The end result is that anything that was in $_POST is now in $_SESSION, and $_SESSION (unlike $_POST) is persistent between page loads.

Put that script by where you assign the value of $orderby and then change your statement from
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $orderby = $_POST['orderby'];

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $orderby = $_SESSION['orderby'];
