  1. In Topic: Load crystal report by name

    Posted 9 Apr 2015

    My challenge is to convert the string in the Combobox to a reportDocument object. This code does it, but when I run it the value of myReport is Nothing
      Dim myReport As ReportDocument = CType(Controls(Combobox .Text.Remove(Combobox .Text.Length - 4)), Object)
            My_Report_Viewer.StandardView.ReportSource = myReport

    Its unforunate I cant say
         My_Report_Viewer.StandardView.ReportSource = New Combobox .Text  
    but this is where I am at, trying to convert the text from the combobox to an object. The text in the Combobox would typicaally be something like "my_PrintForm_Fuel_Report.RPT" I am trying to run away from having to specify the path to the report
  2. In Topic: Load crystal report by name

    Posted 9 Apr 2015

    This is how I load the code for the combobox. Its a telerik combobox so the code is heavy. But the combobox has text in it which is the Reportname eg "my_PrintForm_Fuel_Report.RPT" which is the name of the crystalreport object, now i am trying to use this name to load the report. I first remove the".RPT" part so that what remains is the class name of the crystalreport file. I am now attempting to use this report file name to load the report using
    My_Report_Viewer.StandardView.ReportSource = New my_PrintForm_Diesel_Charge_Outs
    But after the New keyword it expects classname and not myCombobox.Text which is where I am stuck

  3. In Topic: saving data in database and moving to next form

    Posted 5 Feb 2015

    Thanks so much CreamDelight I did what you said and it works well I even went forward to create a sort of a list of the data in the table. This is the final result.
    In myFriends.php
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    $name = isset($_REQUEST['name']) ? $_REQUEST['name'] : "";
    $email = isset($_REQUEST['email']) ? $_REQUEST['email'] : "";		
    <form action="welcome.php" method="post">
    Name : <input type="text" name="name" value="<?php echo $name; ?>"><br>
    Email : <input type="text" name="email" value="<?php echo $email; ?>"><br></br><br></br>
    <input type ="submit" name="save" value="Save">

    And this is the code in welcome.php
    Welcome <?php echo $_POST["name"]; ?><br>
    Your E mail address is: <?php echo $_POST["email"]; ?>
    $nameErr = $emailErr = "";
    $name = isset($_REQUEST['name']) ? $_REQUEST['name'] : "";
    $email = isset($_REQUEST['email']) ? $_REQUEST['email'] : "";
    if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
    $name = test_input($_POST["name"]);
    $email = test_input($_POST["email"]);  
    function test_input($data) {
      $data = trim($data);
      $data = stripslashes($data);
      $data = htmlspecialchars($data);
      return $data;
    if (isset($_REQUEST['save']))
    if (!$conn){
    	die("Connection failed: " .mysqli_connect_error() . "<br></br>" . "<br></br>");
    	echo "Connected successfully" . "<br></br>" . "<br></br>";
    $sql="INSERT INTO MyFriends (name,email) VALUES ('$name','$email')";	
    if ($conn-> query ($sql) === TRUE){	
    	echo "New record created successfully." . "<br></br>" . "<br></br>"; 
    }	else {
    	echo "Error " . mysqli_error($conn). "<br></br>" . "<br></br>";
     if (!$conn){	
    	die("Connection failed: " .mysqli_connect_error() . "<br></br>" . "<br></br>");
    	echo "Connected successfully" . "<br></br>" . "<br></br>";	
    $sql = "SELECT id,name,email FROM MyFriends";
    $result = mysqli_query($conn, $sql);
    if (mysqli_num_rows($result) > 0) {
        // output data of each row
        while($row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result)) {
            echo "id: " . $row["id"]. " - Name: " . $row["name"]. " " . $row["email"]. "<br>";
    } else {
        echo "0 results";
  4. In Topic: Notice: Undefined index: name in C:\..\myTest.php

  5. In Topic: Notice: Undefined index: name in C:\..\myTest.php

    Posted 4 Feb 2015

    Thank you . Your answer really helped me now when I click the Save button the code does not crash and give an error. When I call the page in IE it still shows up with the same Notice: Undefined index: name in C:\wamp\www\Computerize\myFriends.php on line 7 error.

    Any ideas on how I can solve this error, I am new php but I have experience in VB.Net and C# windows forms and this is completely new to me.

    I am suspecting that my variables are not in the right place or something along those lines but I need help on how I can fix it.
