PHP: submitting a form to one of two pages


Hi guys Ive got a page that allows me to delete or modify users.....the page lists all the users with a radio button besides them and at the end of hte page the user can click either delete or modify ........if the user clicks delete I will delete the user and return the user to the same page again ( Ive already done that, the form action submits to itself)....if the users clicks modify I want to take the user to another page with the value of the radio button he chose






if (isset($_POST['delete'])){
//continue on this page done
}
if (isset($_POST['modify']){
//go to modify page and take radio button value there "????"
}

Something like this, maybe?


if (isset($_POST['delete'])){
//continue on this page done
}
if (isset($_POST['modify']){
//go to modify page and take radio button value there "????"
header('Location: modify.php?value=blah');
}

Depends on how many you want to pass, how big they are. You could just string them together like:

header('Location: modify.php?value1=blah&value2=bleh&value3=blue');

I would do it differently. I wouldn't send the 'delete' to the same page. I would have another radio button that specified 'delete' or 'modify' and submit the form to a new page where:

if (isset($_POST['modify']))
{

//modify
}

else
if (isset($_POST['delete']))
{

//delete
}

Iam really new to PHP... Iam a Java programmer and the idea in java is to spare code whenever you can and reuse it.....if I would send the delete to another page I would have to represent the same code of the first page on that page since the user might want to delete another user...
Is it normal in PHP to represent the same code in diff page although there is no real need for it ?

I think you can include other PHP files with the require() function or something. That way, you can use code from many files from one file.

You may want to go to the official PHP manual if you haven't already - http://www.php.net/manual/en/

It's really thorough, and it should answer any particular syntax/usage questions you might have. Like any other language, your code reuse really depends on you - usually, when I'm doing forms like the one you're doing, I just have different functions in the same template (sometimes via "include()" as the previous poster suggested), and keep resubmitting the form to the same page, varying the value of a hidden form variable depending upon which part of the template I want processed.
