$i=0;

i want to pass the = $pids value to the next page which is just a html page at the mo and it contains an email form where i need the value to be copied. i have tried passing it via the url using GET command and all i get is errors or it just does nothing. im hoping some one can help or point me in the right direction.

thanks all

Rather than using $_REQUEST['pid'] try using $_POST['pid'] if the form method is post or $_GET['pid'] if the form method is get.

Change the page extension to .php. Your php code (for $_GET) will then work. Unless you specifically make it so (htaccess), html files cannot run php code.

im sure one of thoes is the correct answer unfortunately im at a simpler stage than that. im not sure how to go about putting that on the page it directs you to. do i just simply make a PHP file with the same name and direct it to that page with that code on the page or would i need a lot more code?

thanks for helping guy and girls

I disagree that putting html affects the php code. Just start with php tags (<?php .......?>). That being said you need to have a session variable that will be passed to the other page in the same session. Read about sessions in PHP manual.

ok ill have a look thanks

im sending this variable to a box in a form not taking it from a form does this make a difrence?

Sending to a box and taking it makes difference. Taking it from a form you use $_POST/$_GET and Sending it just take it from $_SESSION superglobal array and echo it

<input type="text" value=<?php echo $_SESSION['MyVariable']?> />

Html files won't run php, unless specifically told to do so, e.g. from .htaccess files:

RemoveHandler .html .htm
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .htm .html

Html files won't run php, unless specifically told to do so, e.g. from .htaccess files:

RemoveHandler .html .htm
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .htm .html

May be you are right but I have never used any .htaccess and have used HTML embedded with php. Does WAMP server come with htaccess set?
I have never took trouble and things are ok!

There are a few ways of doing this.
On your sending page:
Send the variable from a form:

use method post or get for form

<input type="hidden" name="date" value="<?php echo $date; ?>" \>

or by setting sending it in a url

< a href="nexpage.php?date=<?php echo urlencode($date); ?>" \>

or by setting a session variable

$_SESSION['date']= $date;

Then on nexpage.php:

if sent from a form with the post method

$date=$_POST['date'];

if sent from a form using get method
or as part of the url

$date=$_GET['date'];

or if your session is set

$date=$_SESSION['date'];

Hope it helps!
