i’dlike to share my experience for Web Programming.
My “problem” was i wanted to insert my Hype Animation into a XML Database / PHP Website as a frontend for reading results of Querying.
So here is the Architecture:
== How could i allow communication between PHP results / SESSION variables and my Hype FrontEnd. ==
Here is what i did (there is perhaps other ways, tips and tricks are welcome :
Build a form within a div with unique Id.
<form id="myForm" action="my.php" method="POST">
<input type="text" name="myVariable" id="myVariable"/>
Code a CSS style
in order to have a blank Web Page
var t = document.getElementById('myDiv').innerHTML;
document.getElementById('myHypeRectID').innerHTML = t;
Save as folder, upload to your Website and navigate your Website: you should see your rectangle showing you input.
Get back to Hype.
Insert a Button into your scene.
Save as folder, upload to your site, navigate: you should see your rectangle, a button, etc…
So this is cool for inserting a PHP form Validation module. How could i receive datas into my WebApp ?
Well, it’ s easy now:
define a div with unique id, CSS display: none, something like:
<div id="myPhpId" style="display:none;"><? echo $_POST['myVar']; ?></div>
Turn Back to Hype Editor. Load your Scene, add a Rectangle or whatever element you want (Id=“myRect”).
document.getElementById('myRect').innerHTML = document.getElementById('myPhpId').innerHTML
Save as folder, upload, navigate … that’s all folk.
