i am developing a web based database using PHP and mySQL.
Want the search interface to display a message "No results found" if search
Here's how I was proposing to accomplish this.
Two PHP scripts
(A) A search interface mainly html with embedded PHP block that displays a
(B) An PHP script that is invoked
Inside the second script (B) I will test if no rows returned (no results
found). If this is the case I will invoke the search page (A) and pass a
parameter to the script. This will set a variable in the PHP block to echo
(display) "No results found" .
Does this seem a reasonable solution?
Re: A few questions about PHP blocks in relation to search function
Yes, but there is no reason why you could not do it all with one script.
