    Question CSS, styles and PHP

    Hello and thanks for having me in the forum.

    My boss has a request and I need some assistance. Is there a way in PHP to assign a formatted style to an individual form/db field based on the user permissions.

    For example, he needs to pass three specific styles: Universal (Read/Write in the field and visible), Read_Only (Read the field only and visible as grayed-out text), and Nothing_Allowed (field not visible).

    If I create a style (using standard CSS) how would PHP then pass that code at the field level?

    I am very familiar with HTML and CSS but PHP is ancient Greek to me. If I create a standard style-sheet document can he then take that and use it to program the script for each field.

    Anyway, If I sound confused, I am.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi George,

    I am sure PHP can do 90% of what you need here. Be aware, tho, that mostly this we will just a case of using good old-fashioned html.

    one of the useful things about PHP is that it can write HTML. Here is a simplified example -

    <input type="text" name="badger" <?php 
    if ($readonly == TRUE)
    echo 'readonly';
    ?> >
    This example shows that if the variable $readonly is true, then php adds 'readonly' where it is, which is in the input tag.

    best bet, if your starting from scratch, is to look at examples and the manual @ http://www.php.net/
