Hi all,
i tried this code but its giving error
fatal error: Call to undefined function equals() in D:\xampp\htdocs\demo\contractor_new.php on line 152

<?php 	
	include 'database.php';

	if(category.equals("sercategory"))
	{
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM  service_category ");

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
echo $row['servicec'];
echo "<br />";
}
	}
else
{
	echo 'error';
}
if(category.equals("servicetype"))
{
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM  service_type ");

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
echo $row['servicet'];
echo "<br />";
}
}
else
{
	echo 'error';
}
mysql_close();

?>

There is no function called equals. Have you written a function called equals ?
Btw, == is the comparison operator. if($value1 == $value2)

echo "<br />";
echo 'error';
}
}
else
{
	echo 'error';
}

mysql_close();

?>

</body>
</html>

What are you exactly trying to do ? It would be really helpful if you use code tags to wrap your code.

Edited 3 Years Ago by Reverend Jim: Fixed formatting

I think you have to restrict the select condition by using where clause based on your service_category..


try this:

<html>
<head><title>auto alto system</title></head>
<body>
<table>
<tr>
<td> category</td>
<td><select name="category">
<option value="sercategory">service category</option>
<option value="servicetype">service type</option>
<option value="services">services</option>

</select></td>
</tr>
</table>
<?php

include 'database.php';




$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM service_category where category_name='".$_POST['category']."' ");

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
echo $row['servicec'];
echo "<br />";
}


if($_POST['category'] == "servicetype")
{
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM service_type ");
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
echo $row['servicet'];
echo "<br />";
echo 'error';
}
}
else
{
echo 'error';
}

mysql_close();

?>

</body>
</html>
