Hi Troy,

You should say that you are on the :)
Store it in the either Session collection (Session["key"] = value) or
Application collection (Application["key"] = value) .

file shows the initial value of the login name variable declared inside the
module and prompts the user to enter his own login name . how come when I
run the application in VS.NET again, the same login name last inputted shows
up, it's like the module doesn't reset it's own value.

2. using global variables in the database connection string


I'm sure this has been asked a million times but I can't seem to
formulate a google search that returns what i'm looking for.

I've go a dev and live environment. Currently the DB connect string is
hard coded into each php file which means i'm going to have to change
every page - Arrgh!!

If i put the DBonnect into a function and store it in an include file,
it doesn't seem to work, Also the connetion works with inline PHP
statements, but I have to repeat it in every function even if they are
in the main php file??? which doesn't seem right to me..

I need to either :-

Store the connection variables in an include file and retrieve them as
global values


Store the connection string in a function in an include file which can
be accessed by all functions.

also do I really have to call the dbconnect inside every function.

Please note, if it makes any difference, I still havn't got my head
round OO programming in PHP so it is still pretty much procedural. I
am using PEAR but dont really understand (or care at the moment) about
what it is doing.

Thanks in advance
