Hey every one. i am new in php. i know how to select, edit, add, delete data from database and show it in html table. before i was doing this using 4 php pages each for every one.

but today i got an assignment that i have to display data in html table and with every row there is a button of edit.
if user press edit same row of same table will convert to textbox with data in then and edit button will change to save button.

so i want to know how i can identify the row and change it in to textbox. i will really appreciate your help.

I would suggest using javascript to change the table cells into forms. To do it, you would probably give each cell a row number and column letter for the id= and the edit button (onclick) can trigger the javascript event.
