How to handle data from different html lists?

datalogidatalogi Posts: 4Member
Hi.
I have the code where I can drag and drop items to the 5 different html lists.

When I have dragged items to the lists I would like to save the result.
So my problem is that when I save the result I don't know where from the lists data comes.

Could you please help me if you understand what I mean?

The code is following:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">



Untitled Document

body,html {
color:#333;
font-family:Calibri;
font-size:11px;
}
.panel {float:left;width:200px;margin:20px;}

ul {
list-style-type:none;
border:1px solid #999;
background:#ccc;
padding:20px;
min-height:150px;
width:100px;
}

li {
display:block;
border:1px solid #999;
background:#fff;
width:80px;
padding:5px 10px;
margin-bottom:5px;
}

.dds_selected {
background:#ffc;
}
.dds_ghost {
opacity:0.5;
}
.dds_move {
background:#cfc;
}
.dds_hover {
background:#fc9;
border:3px dashed #c96;
}

.holder {
border:3px dashed #333;
background:#fff;
}

    What a bunch of code you posted there... :-P

    Most is Javascript though...
    It's not really clear what you want, but I guess you want to be able to know from witch ul list your data came...?

    like:
    [code]








    [/code]


    in your php you would then want to save the data from person1 and person2 seperately. is this what you mean?

    you could simply do it by naming your varialble a certain way so you can split the data easily, like I did in the above example. I can now do the following:

    [code]
    foreach($_POST as $field=>$value) {
    list($person,$variable) = explode("_", $field);

    switch($person) {
    case "person1":
    $person1[$variable] = $value;
    break;
    case "person2":
    $person1[$variable] = $value;
    break;
    default:
    echo "this is not personal info...".$person."
    ";
    }
    }

    // now save your person1 and person2... their data is in seperate arrays now...
    [/code]

    I hope this was helpfull, if not you'd better rephrase your question...
    ;-)

    Hi again and many thanks for the reply.

    The point is that I would like to know that where of the 5 ul lists each of the names (Investments, Family, Sport, Friends, Age, Skills) has been dragged.

    Like:

    list_1 contains: Investments, Sport
    list_2 contains: Family
    list_3 contains: Skills
    list_4 contains: -
    list_5 contains: Friends, Age

    Hope you will understand better :)
