( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I did try to omit pieces that seemed irrelevant, so I didn't include how the parameters were being set. Several parameters are being set through classical forms, e.g.
print $q->start_form(), 'Please choose an action:  ', $q->popup_menu( -name => 'exec', -values => ['add', 'list', 'search' +] ), $q->popup_menu( -name => 'table', -values => ['users', 'VPN', 'VMacc +ounts', 'supporting tables'] );
This orderby and desc fields are not -- they are being manually set via
print $q->h2($subtitle), "\n<table border>\n\t<tr><th>ID</th><th>Type +"; foreach (my $i=1; $i<=$#USER_FIELDS; $i++) { my $flags = '?exec=list&amp;table=users&amp;orderby='.$i; if ($i == $index) { $flags .= '&amp;desc=1'; } print "</th><th><a href=\"$flags\">$LABELS{$USER_FIELDS[$i]}</a>"; } print "</th></tr>\n";
(The titles on the table lets you sort by that field, and if you click on an already-sorted field it reverses it.)

I didn't think that relevant, because its all upstream: at the invocation I'm looking at, the value of orderby is being shown in the $q->Dump output; yet its vanished by the time the first subroutine is called. That is, I've got a print statement, a couple of local assignments, two if's that call listUsers(), a little DB work at the top of sub listusers, and then orderby has vanished. I am assuming there is some sort of global variable passing between CGI instances that I don't know about? ... well, I'm confused.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
