Per my previous post on using $form...All I want to do is validate the input fields are not blank..etc, to put up an error message and repaint the form by using the $form in a variable.
such as:
if ($sPass == "") :
$message="The student's Password is a required field.";
print "<p align=\"center\"><span class=\"subhead\">$message</span></p> ";
$error_flag = "y";

// If the $error_flag has been set, redisplay the form
if ($error_flag == "y") :
print "$form";

else : etc.

BUT perhaps there is a better way, and I can stop driving myself crazy getting the sql statement to run, display data in the variable. Is there another way to validate user input without going to another page?
