How do I apply CSS to the table generated into another window?

Tags: php,javascript,html,css

Problem :

I am unsure where to apply my CSS to the table I have generated. I am getting

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING in /home/content/08/10674308/html/venuesearch.php on line 133

My line 133 is this

$resultString .= "<div id=".table-2" class=\\\"results\\\">There are " .  $result->num_rows . " results for $city, $state:<br /><br /><table>";

Here is the code I am working with


    include "dbc.php"; 

    $query = <<<EOF
    city= '$city' 
    st= '$state'

if ($result = mysqli_query($dbc, $query)){
    $resultString = "<html>";
    $resultString .= "<head><link href=\\\"default.css\\\" rel=\\\"stylesheet\\\"       `enter code here`type=\\\"text/css\\\" media=\\\"all\\\" /></head><body>";  

    $resultString .= "<div id=".table-2" class=\\\"results\\\">There are " . $result-`enter code here`>num_rows . " results for $city, $state:<br /><br /><table>";

    $resultString .= "  <tr><thead><th></th>";
    $resultString .= "      <th>Venue Name</th>";
    $resultString .= "      <th>Capacity</th>";
    $resultString .= "      <th>City</th>";
    $resultString .= "      <th>State</th>";
    $resultString .= "      <th>Telephone</th>";
    $resultString .= "      <th>Contact</th>";
    $resultString .= "      <th>Email</th>";    
    $resultString .= "  </thead></tr>";
    $rowCount = 0;
    while ($row =mysqli_fetch_assoc($result))
        $resultString .= "<tbody><tr>";
        $resultString .= "<td>$rowCount</td>";
        $resultString .= "<td>" . $row['VenueName'] . "</td>";
        $resultString .= "<td>" . $row['capacity'] . "</td>";
        $resultString .= "<td>" . $row['city'] . "</td>";
        $resultString .= "<td>" . $row['st'] . "</td>";
        $resultString .= "<td>" . $row['tele'] . "</td>";
        $resultString .= "<td>" . $row['contact'] . "</td>";
        $resultString .= "<td>" . $row['EmailAddress'] . "</td>";       
        $resultString .= "</tr></tbody>";
    $resultString .= "</table></div></body></html>";
<script type="text/javascript">
    newWindow("resultsWindow"+(resultsWindows.length - 1),"<?php echo $resultString; ?`enter code here`>",400,400);

Solution :

Your line has indeed an error, change this:

$resultString .= "<div id=".table-2" class=\\\"results\\\">There are " .  $result->num_rows . " results for $city, $state:<br /><br /><table>";

to this:

$resultString .= "<div id='table-2' class='results'>There are " .  $result->num_rows . " results for $city, $state:<br /><br /><table>";

The problem was with the way you concatenated table-2, because you used the . concatenation operator, and then didn't use it to concatenate it with the rest of the string. Also, you just wanted to concatenate table-2 as a stringe (as this is the id defined in your CSS) and not as a variable (which would be $table-2 anyways).

So that caused a bunch of mistakes.

Also, not sure why you did all that escaping, while you needed just one backslash or just using the single quotes inside your double quotes.
