Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: reading lines of an xml and changing them

  1. #1

    reading lines of an xml and changing them

    I have a tool on my website that lets users create an xml file. But they aren't saved for them to edit later.

    I'd like to be able to save the file as their user_id.xml and then make it available to them later.

    I'm sure I need to use mySql, but I can't get a visual in my head of what I need to do to get this to work.

    Thank you.

    So with the link you sent I can show the user the contents of their xml file and let them altar it?

    that's probably a dumb question, but it looked complicated for me.

    you could do something like
    PHP Code:
    $xml_data file_get_contents'myfile.xml' );
    echo 
    '<form method="post" ...>';
    echo 
    '<textarea name="xml_data">'.$xml_data.'</textarea>';
    echo 
    '</form ...>'
    PHP Code:
    $new_xml $_POST['xml_data'];
    file_put_contents'myfile.xml'$new_xml ); 
    obviously that example's not drag-and-drop, but that is the basic idea.

    that's exactly what i was looking for.

    thank you so much
