Okay, effective, umm, now. No more host switching until next off season. I'm going to focus on learning PHP in a similar fashion that I know ASP.NET.

Click HERE to see the page.


Building the form, easy.
Coding the connection to the database, easy.
Grabbing the values from the radio buttons and storing them into variables to transfer to a database, kicking my ass.

I think I'm attacking this wrong because I'm using HTML code, but shouldn't I be able to use straight PHP code throughout?


Edit, here's how I'm starting out ...

I'm not sure this will help you understand, my comments might not be helpful if you're just learning.

Save this as "pickem.php":

Code:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>Untitled Poop</title>
</head>

<?php 
// start php

// see if the GET variable "picks" is set
if(isset($_GET["picks"])) {
	// if picks is equal to "yes" proceed
	if($_GET["picks"] == "yes") {
		echo "<strong>You picked the following winners:</strong><br />";
		// if the GET variable "picks" is set, show picks
		// variables for the form are stored in an array called $_POST[]
		// the value for the array is the name of the input field i.e., rdoGame01
		// go through the post variable and display picks
		// assign variables
		$games = 16;	// number of games
		// if variable $x is less than the total number of games, add 1 to $x
		for($x = 0; $x <= 16; $x++) {
			// check games
			if($x < 10) {
				$x = "0" . $x . "";
			}
			if(isset($_POST["rdoGame" . $x . ""])) {
				// do whatever you want with each game right here
				if($x != "1") {echo ", ";}
				echo $_POST["rdoGame" . $x . ""] . "";
			}
		}
		echo "<br /><br />";
	}
}

?>

Very awesome of you, thank you for taking the time to do that. Unfortunately, I have to go to sleep now, but hopefully I can spend some time on this tomorrow.

As crazy inefficient as it is, this makes me miss Visual Basic (6, of course. None of that .net sorcery). As a kid I'd spend afternoons and weekends experimenting with code, not having the slightest clue what I was doing until I got it to work and figured out why. Nowadays I'm working with shell scripts (linux), I miss that fluid feel VB6 had. Didn't miss having to make API calls for some more advanced graphical manipulation and trying to learn directx, but at its core it was streamlined and not as unusable for higher-end applications as most people say...

Regardless, a bit off-topic I suppose. I guess some people like making websites, some people like making computer games, and then there's database nerds. :P

Maybe I'll finally have to take you off my ignore list now :P

I feel like I click to read your posts half the time anyway hah.

@DKF295: I remember being a kid (not too long ago, in fact i'm probably still one now) and doing the same thing, albeit with websites. My dad was a website designer for over a decade so I kind of picked up the tools of the trade at a young age--not because I had too but because I found it fun.

@grabacr: I haven't learned an ounce about PHP or web design in college. In fact my teacher gave me a B in my web design course because she disliked that I knew almost everything already. I'm not saying I'm a genius or anything or that you won't learn anything in college, I just happen to learn things better on my own.

dj, would you be willing to help me with this project? You're PHP skills are far superior to mine. I'm only good editing existing code. I could figure it out on my own, but having a genius help me would speed things up for shizzle.
