I posted another question with this same form, but I am trying to figure out how to get the form to leave out blank form fields.

Code: Select all

<p class="style2"><span class="style5"><strong>Incident / Unusual Occurrence Report</strong></span><br>
Danville Area Community College<br><br>
REPORT FORM</p>

	
 <table width="481" height="657" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
  <tr> 
   
   
    <td rowspan="2" valign="top" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" style="width: 481px"> 
	<p align="center"class="style3"><font size="-1" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" align="left">
	<?php
		$problems = array();
		$showform = 0;
		 $errorMessage = "";
		
		function validate($field, $value) {
		
			// || $field == "id" || $field == "phone" || $field == "course" || $field == "instructor"
		
			/*if ($field == "name" || $field == "email" || $field == "computers" || $field == "info") {*/
				if ($value == "") {

				}
			}*/
		
		}
	
		if($_POST) {
		
			//'id','phone','course','instructor',
		
			$fields = array('name','title', 'date', 'time', 'building', 'room', 'location', 'person', 'title1', 'phone1', 'explanation', 'security', 'police', 'witness',);

When a user fills out the form and clicks the submit button. Any parts of the form the user doesn't fill out will be empty or null any way. So I don't under stand your question.
