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.

Thread: loop mysql query

  1. #1

    loop mysql query

    I have 2 mysql tables. lets say One table has id and name, the other has id_pic, foto, description and name_id
    I have a query that join both tables and make a comparation so i can have the name and the fotos and descriptions. I did this because each person can have multiple fotos. So one table has name of the persons and the other has pictures.
    My query is: $query_rs_fotos = "SELECT * FROM table 1, table 2 WHERE table 1.id = table 2.name_id";
    Now i want to have the result of this query looped but i don't know how to loop it and separate the data.
    Lets say i have this data:
    :::.table 1:::::
    id | name
    1 | john
    2 | bob

    ::::table 2:::::
    id_pic | foto | description | name_id
    1 | bla.jpg | bla | 1
    2 | buh.jpg | buh | 2
    3 | yah.jpg | yah | 1
    4 | boing.jpg | boing | 1
    5 | bang.jpg | bang | 2
    i want the loop to return something like:
    <tr><td> john</td></tr>
    <tr><td> bla.jpg</td><td> yah.jpg</td></tr>
    <tr><td> boing.jpg</td></tr>
    <tr><td> bob</td></tr>
    <tr><td> buh.jpg</td><td> bang.jpg</td></tr>
    How can i do this? ???

    first off, your html table is all messed up

    Try something like this (not exactly how you have it laid out, but close enough)

    PHP Code:

    mysql_query("select * from `table1`");
    $i 0$i mysql_num_rows($res1); $i++) {
    "<tr><th>" mysql_result($res1$i"name") . "</th></tr>";
    $res2 mysql_query("select * from `table2` where `name_id`='" mysql_result($res1$i"name_id") . "' ");
    $j 0$j mysql_num_rows($res2); $j++) {
    "<tr><td>" mysql_result($res2$j"foto") . "</td></tr>";

    Why do web browsers function so differently? Why can't they all follow the same Web Standard...users don't care how it works, but the programmers do.

    select a.id, b.id, a.name, b.foto from table_1 a
    inner join table_2 b
    on b.name_id = a.id
    order by a.name, b.foto.

    now execute the query
    $last_name = '';
    $result = // get next result ( first )
    while( $result )
        if( $last_name != $result['name'] )
             $last_name = $result['name'];
             echo "<tr><td>" . $last_name . '</td><td>' . $result['foto'] . '</td></tr>';
              echo "<tr><td></td><td>" . $result['foto'] . '</td></tr>';
        $result = // get next result...

    $result = // get next result ( first )
