  1. ok...I spoke to soon...I was sure i would be able to get your code to work but i was wrong...forgive my ignorance....can you help me out... can u implement your code on the sample form listed on this site. http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?fi...tryhtml_select3 The below didn't work. ><html> <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript" > <!-- function selectform() { testform.cars[audi].select(); } --> </script> <body onload(selectform)> <form name="testform"> <select name="cars"> <option value="volvo">Volvo</option> <option value="saab">Saab</option> <option value="fiat">Fiat</option> <option value="audi">Audi</option> </select> </form> </body> </html>
  2. Nice...thank you so much.... Where did you get this source if I may ask..any good sites for nitpicky stuff like this. the only site i usually use for javascript xhtml etc is w3schools.com. Its been adequate as a reference but I wouldn't mind using another one for other rare occassions.
  3. Yes...I will need something after the list is loaded. Mind showing me the code. @TCH-Bruce Heh, thats pretty much the same thing...Not what I was looking for...thanks for the reply anyway.
  4. HI, does anyone know any other way for me to load up a page with a particular item selected from a drop down list besides doing this. Example shown in link: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?fi...tryhtml_select3 Thanks, Dave
  5. Curious, what kind of information can you find out with soley a vin number.
  6. Yeah...Although I think the site is excellent, a redesign would be nice to make it easier to navigate. Since your site has sooooooo much useful information, it needs a much more complex interface. I hope you can do it w/o breaking your pocket book, otherwise don't. You deserve a comfortable paycheck bill for running the best web hosting company around.
  7. ROFL.... woooot Now i get it, you just set the date field to exactly what it was before....hehehe...You know what was confusing me... your quotes.. I didn't notice they were ` i thought they were ' ... I was thinking why the hell do you want me to insert the characters 'date' on there....but now I know you meant for me to put the name of my date field instead.... hehe... Its all my fault..since i never put those type of quotes to identify my fields...It works fine w/o them,. I'm just glad I finally got it working... Thumbs Up Thanks again robert for your patience.
  8. Dude i'm sorry man, but I still don't understand what you want me to do. I'll try to ask my previous question again... You said to set the date field to 'date' ??? I said...is that possible..you are trying to add a character value into a date datatype... how is that going to prevent it from updating it...It will likely not accept that value and just default the date to all zeros assuming u have that date field set to not null which I do.
  9. Thanks for the reply...I'm not sure I understand you. How can I set a date datatype to a character value. date='date' I'm confused...they talk about how to do it exactly here http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/DATETIME.html but what do they mean by setting the timestamp columb explicity to its current value.
  10. Hi, i'm a bit confused. How can I insert a row using the MYSQL NOW() function so that it only inserts the timestamp and not the timestamp and NOW() Function. I don't want the timestamp to change everytime I update that row. Am I going to have to use a php function to get the date and time stamp into the right format and push that into the database each time, or is there a simple solution to forcing the NOW() only to insert the timestamp. NOTE: My date column is using a timestamp(14) in the form of YYYYMMDDHHMMSS I'f i'm not making any sense let me know... Thanks, Dave
  11. well after hunting and hunting...i finally found that the beta version of firebird 8 actually fixed the problem....whoopie. http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/fir...tly/latest-0.8/ forum thread for 2004-01-20 branch build http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=46756 Now just one other kink I gotta figure out. When you save a php file that redirects to another file...it always saves the php filename itself and the contents of the file it redirected to. Ex. Right Click and save this. This is a redirection script that redirects to an mp3 file. Firebird saves this as download.php instead of the actual filename. On IE, it saves the correct filename. http://davescrib.com/downloads/download.ph...=arnold-gateway Anyone know if i can get this working like IE.
  12. HI, i know some of you guys are firebird users and I have a q for you guys. Does anyone know how to have a video file open directly on windows media player instead of having firebird download it to the temp directory and opening it on windows media player only after its completed. I would like it to open directly on windows media player like IE does so it can download and play at the same time provided its an mpg,wmv. I'm asking here b/c believe it or not, nobody could answer this question on the official firebird forums...pretty pathetic huh. Thanks for any help, Dave
  14. I did it from 1000 to 5000 rows... and it was only slightly faster.... I didn't calculate the percentage difference which i should have...and I already cleaned out my dummy table. But as I recall it was only like a .0002 seconds faster querying 5000 rows. But every time i ran the script the varchar was always faster.
  15. I tested it against a few thousand rows and all my tests showed the where varchar to be faster...I find that odd. why is that...you would think it would be easier to search for ints.
  16. ya, I have something like that on another script of mine. I guess your right..I'll have to check myself.
  17. You would think enough people would complain about it and it would be fixed.
  18. Hi, does anyone know how much more efficient would selecting a few rows out of lets say a 1000 using the where int clause rather than using a where varchar(25) clause. Both indexed of course. Would this be a drastic increase in efficiency or not? thanks, Dave
  19. INT is out of the question since your going to have dashes. I would use char(length) or varchar(length) since its going to be a fixed number of characters.
  20. Ah i c, so is there any way to change that id. I'm guessing not otherwise u would've given me that tip. BTW, where can i get more info about that UID, GID and Sticky option for chmoding. Thanks for the reply, Dave
  21. hey, anyone ever use the chmod php function. I'm getting some strange results. Ok, first I'm unable to chmod any file that I upload onto the server. But lets say I create one in the script using fopen(File, 'w+), then chmod it immediately after creation it works. Any idea why its not working properly. Sample Code >$file="test.txt"; if(!file_exists($file)) { if(!fopen($file, 'w+')) die("<b>Could not create $file as database, CHMOD your directory to the appropriate permissions.</b>"); echo"<b>Created $file since it didn't exist!!!</b><br />"; } if(!is_writable($file) || !is_executable($file)) if(chmod($file, 0777)) echo"<b>Changed $file permissions to 777!!!</b><br />"; else die("<b>Could not chmod $file to 777, please do this manually!!!</b>");
  22. Thanks everyone, i realized it was a huge mistake on my part. It was one of my loops that was off by one that was screwing up my variables...next time i gotta read.... here is something interesting. http://us4.php.net/manual/en/function.array-search.php Notice on example one the paramaters are flipped around...does php.net have a lot of mistakes?
  23. hm...I hate it when i get stuck in a jam while coding. How can i just use a variable+3 w/o postincrementing it in PHP. I just realized that php postincrements the variable automatically if u use this syntax $var+3. I don't want it to post increment, I just need it evaluated for an array i'm using. Ex. array[$var+3] http://us4.php.net/manual/en/language.expressions.php Can Anyone help. Thanks, Dave
  24. yeah, i made a droplet for that action.
  25. Yeah i used a picture. With a bit of tweaking I made it look ok, but I was just curious if anyone had any better ideas. thanks anyway, Dave
