Hello PHP geniuses! I am a beginner in php and would like to seek your expert advices and knowledge. When I display the result to a table, it always loop at the bottom, I want to display the another table at the right side of the first table. When I try to use the float:left, its coming out of the DIV and the white background is disappearing. This is my code:

<?php

    $nationality = $_POST['nationality'];
    $category = $_POST['category'];

    if ($category == 'All' and $nationality == 'All')
    {
    $sql="Select * from $tbl_name where Published = 'Y'";
    }
    elseif ($nationality and $category == 'All')
    {
    $sql = "Select * from $tbl_name where Published = 'Y' and Nationality = '$nationality'";
    }
    elseif ($category and $nationality = 'All')
    {
    $sql="Select * from $tbl_name where Published = 'Y' and Category = '$category'";
    }


    $result=mysql_query($sql);

    while($rows=mysql_fetch_array($result)){

    {
     @$image=$rows['Photo'];
     ?>

     <?php
    }
    ?>


    <table bgcolor="#FFFFFF" style="font-size:13px; float:left; margin-bottom:10px; margin-top:20px" align="center" width="400" height="40%"border="1">
      <tr>
        <td width="150" rowspan="10"><center><a href="image/<?php echo $image;?>"><img src="image/<?php echo $image; ?>" width="150" height="100" border="0"></a></center></td>
        <td width="128">Category:</td>
        <td width="150"><p><?php echo $rows['Category']; ?></p></td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Staff Code:</td>
        <td><p><?php echo $rows['id']; ?></p></td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Name:</td>
        <td><?php echo $rows['Firstname']; ?></td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Nationality</td>
        <td><?php echo $rows['Nationality']; ?></td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Weight</td>
        <td><?php echo $rows['Weight']; ?></td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Height</td>
        <td><?php echo $rows['Height']; ?></td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Age</td>
        <td><?php echo $rows['Age']; ?></td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Job Title</td>
        <td><?php echo $rows['Jobtitle']; ?></td>
      </tr>
       <tr>
         <td>Qualifications</td>
        <td><?php echo $rows['Qualifications']; ?></td>
      </tr>
       <tr>
         <td colspan="2"><center>
    <form action="requestform.php" name="request" method="post">
    <input type='submit' name="submit" class="button" value='Request' />
    </form>
    </center></td>
        </tr>
    </table>


    <?php
    }
    ?>

This is the CSS

#content{
    background-color:#FFF;
    width: 955px;
    min-height: 100%;
    margin-left:auto;
    margin-right:auto;
    padding: 10px;
}

This is more CSS than PHP.

When I try to use the float:left, its coming out of the DIV and the white background is disappearing.

Try to make you TABLE WIDTH longer. Regarding about the DIV where is the DIV? I only see a TABLE. For the CSS

#content

I don't see a DIV that has #content in your code?

Sorry sir, this is included at the top of my php code

<div id="content">
<center>
<form method="post" action="" name="form">
Choose Nationality:<select id="nationality" class="select" name="nationality">
<option style="border:0px"selected="" value="All">All</option>
<option value="Filipino">Filipino</option>
<option value="Japanese">Japanese</option>
<option value="Egyptian">Egyptian</option>
<option value="sample">sample</option>
</select><br />
Choose Category:<select id="category" class="select" name="category">
<option style="border:0px"selected="" value="All">All</option>
<option value="Accounting/Finance">Accounting/Finance</option>
<option value="Admin/HR">Admin/HR</option>
<option value="Computer/IT">Computer/IT</option>
<option value="Engineering">Engineering</option>
<option value="Sales/Marketing">Sales/Marketing</option>
<option value="Manufacturing">Manufacturing</option>
<option value="Arts/Media/Comm">Arts/Media/Comm</option>
<option value="Building/Construction">Building/Construction</option>
<option value="Services">Services</option>
<option value="Hotel/Restaurant">Hotel/Restaurant</option>
<option value="Sciences">Sciences</option>
<option value="Education/Training">Education/Training</option>
<option value="Healthcare">Healthcare</option>
<option value="Others">Others</option>
</select><br />
<input type='submit' name="submit" class="button" value='Go' />
</form>
</center>

The size of the div is good for 2 tables, so it should be 2 tables in 1 line, but the results is dispalying outside the div

What do you mean it always loop at the bottom, and what is the another table? I am new myself, but i found your question but difficult to get, than the coding

I used while for this to display every data in the database, so there will be a lot of tables as many as the records. What am trying to say is, i want to display the next table to the right side of the first table instead of displaying it under after another.

On your CSS change from this:

#content{
background-color:#FFF;
width: 955px;
min-height: 100%;
margin-left:auto;
margin-right:auto;
padding: 10px;
}

to this:

#content{
background-color:#FFF;
width: 955px;
min-height: 100%;
padding: 10px;
display:inline-block;
float: left;
}

I think this should work.

It perfectly works! But only one problem, I want the div to be at the center that's why I set the margins left and right to auto.

It perfectly works! But only one problem, I want the div to be at the center that's why I set the margins left and right to auto.

Try this:

For CSS:

<style>
    #content{
    background-color:#FFF;
    width: 100%;
    min-height: 100%;
    padding: 10px;
    }
</style>

For your DIV to be CENTER:

<table align="center">
<tr>
<td>
<div align="left">
<div id="content">
    <form method="post" action="" name="form">
    Choose Nationality:<select id="nationality" class="select" name="nationality">
    <option style="border:0px"selected="" value="All">All</option>
    <option value="Filipino">Filipino</option>
    <option value="Japanese">Japanese</option>
    <option value="Egyptian">Egyptian</option>
    <option value="sample">sample</option>
    </select><br />
    Choose Category:<select id="category" class="select" name="category">
    <option style="border:0px"selected="" value="All">All</option>
    <option value="Accounting/Finance">Accounting/Finance</option>
    <option value="Admin/HR">Admin/HR</option>
    <option value="Computer/IT">Computer/IT</option>
    <option value="Engineering">Engineering</option>
    <option value="Sales/Marketing">Sales/Marketing</option>
    <option value="Manufacturing">Manufacturing</option>
    <option value="Arts/Media/Comm">Arts/Media/Comm</option>
    <option value="Building/Construction">Building/Construction</option>
    <option value="Services">Services</option>
    <option value="Hotel/Restaurant">Hotel/Restaurant</option>
    <option value="Sciences">Sciences</option>
    <option value="Education/Training">Education/Training</option>
    <option value="Healthcare">Healthcare</option>
    <option value="Others">Others</option>
    </select><br />
    <input type='submit' name="submit" class="button" value='Go' />
    </form>
</div>
</div>
</tr>
</tr>
</table>

This should solve your issue.

Thank you so much! I just did some minimal modification, but the concept of the div inside the table is the trick. Thanks again! :)
