  • Using variables from a class

    I have used a class to create a drop down calender.
    But i want to be able to use the selected date that the user chooses
    as a variable in another page.
    I want to use the date to be able to display dates in a table.

    Can anyone help please?

    <?
    class date_pulldown {
    var $name;
    var $timestamp = -1;
    var $months = array("Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May", "Jun", "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec");
    var $yearstart = -1;
    var $yearend = -1;

    function date_pulldown($name) {
    $this->name = $name;
    }

    function setDate_global( ) {
    if (!$this->setDate_array($GLOBALS[$this->name])) {
    return $this->setDate_timestamp(time());
    }
    return true;
    }

    function setDate_timestamp($time) {
    $this->timestamp = $time;
    return true;
    }

    function setDate_array($inputdate) {
    if (is_array($inputdate) &&
    isset($inputdate['mon']) &&
    isset($inputdate['mday']) &&
    isset($inputdate['year'])) {

    $this->timestamp = mktime(11, 59, 59, $inputdate['mon'], $inputdate['mday'], $inputdate['year']);
    return true;
    }

    return false;
    }

    function setYearStart($year) {
    $this->yearstart = $year;
    }

    function setYearEnd($year) {
    $this->yearend = $year;
    }

    function getYearStart() {
    if ($this->yearstart < 0) {
    $nowarray = getdate(time());
    $this->yearstart = $nowarray[year]-5;
    }

    return $this->yearstart;
    }

    function getYearEnd() {
    if ($this->yearend < 0) {
    $nowarray = getdate(time());
    $this->yearend = $nowarray[year]+8;
    }
    return $this->yearend;
    }

    function output() {
    if ($this->timestamp < 0) {
    $this->setDate_global();
    }
    $datearray = getdate($this->timestamp);
    $out = $this->day_select($this->name, $datearray);
    $out .= $this->month_select($this->name, $datearray);
    $out .= $this->year_select($this->name, $datearray);
    return $out;
    }

    function day_select($fieldname, $datearray) {
    $out = "<select name=\"$fieldname"."[mday]\">\n";
    for ($x=1; $x<=31; $x++) {
    $out .= "<option value=\"$x\"".($datearray['mday']==($x) ?" SELECTED":"").">".sprintf("%02d", $x ) ."\n";
    }
    $out .= "</select>\n";
    return $out;
    }

    function month_select($fieldname, $datearray) {
    $out = "<select name=\"$fieldname"."[mon]\">\n";
    for ($x = 1; $x <= 12; $x++) {
    $out .= "<option value=\"".($x)."\"".($datearray['mon']==($x) ?" SELECTED":"")."> ".$this->months[$x-1]."\n";
    }
    $out .= "</select>\n";
    return $out;
    }

    function year_select($fieldname, $datearray) {
    $out = "<select name=\"$fieldname"."[year]\">";
    $start = $this->getYearStart();
    $end = $this->getYearEnd();
    for ($x= $start; $x < $end; $x++) {
    $out .= "<option value=\"$x\"".($datearray['year']==($x) ?" SELECTED":"").">$x\n";
    }
    $out .= "</select>\n";
    return $out;
    }
    }
    ?>

    What do you think about a form submiting the selected date by post?

    <form action="target_script.php" method="post">
    <!--- calendar an all other elemets which value you want to submit -->
    <input type="submit"/>
    </form>
