hi
how to get my database values to my textbox....
i want to update my database content.in order to do that i want to display the existing content in a textbox so that the user can change the content and click update to update the content in the db.

Assuming you know how to pull things from the database already, you should be looking at something like this

<input name="box1" type="text" id="box1" value="<? echo $rows; ?>">

works fine for me.

hi,
i have three pages.In the third page....i want the textbox to get the data base content in it but it is not working..i tried <input type="text" id="name" value="<? echo $line; ?>"> but it is not working for me.i want to know wants wrong with my code
1st page
<?php
$link=mysql_connect($hostname, $username, $password);
mysql_select_db($dbid) or die("unable to connect");
$result=mysql_query("SELECT name FROM hi");
print "name";
for ($i = 0; $i < mysql_num_rows($result); ++$i)
{
$line = mysql_fetch_row($result);
rint "<a href='king.php?name=".$line[0]."'>".$line[0]."";
}
mysql_close($link);
?>

2nd page
<?php
$link=mysql_connect($hostname, $username, $password);
mysql_select_db($dbid) or die("unable to connect");
$line = $_GET;
echo "<table width='50%' border='1'>";
$result=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM hi where name='$line'");
for ($i = 0; $i < 1; ++$i)
{ $line = mysql_fetch_row($result);
print "Name $line[0]";
}
echo "</table>";
mysql_close($link);
?>
<form method="post" action="red11.php">
<input type="button" name="edit" value="edit">
</form>


3rd page
<?php
$hostname = "localhost";
$username = "splendor_lydia";
$password = "jesus";
$dbid = "splendor_samp";
$link=mysql_connect($hostname, $username, $password);
mysql_select_db($dbid) or die("unable to connect");
$line = $_GET;
$result=mysql_query("SELECT name,age FROM hi where name=$line ");
for ($i = 0; $i < mysql_num_rows($result); ++$i)
{
$line = mysql_fetch_row($result);
print " Name $line[0] ";
}
mysql_close($link);
?>

On page 2,

print 'Name: <input type="text" name="name" value="'.$line[0].'" />';

This wont pass to page 3 unless it's between <form> and </form> though.
