Add Multiple rows dynamically by clicking Add New Button

Copy the javascript coding & paste it in head.

<1script type="text/javascript">

var dcname =document.getElementById("dcname");
var dqty =document.getElementById("dqty");
var dstype =document.getElementById("dstype");
var dnature =document.getElementById("dnature");
var morerow=document.getElementById("tbl")
var newtr = document.createElement("tr");

var newtd1 = document.createElement("td");
newtd1.innerHTML = dcname.innerHTML;
var newtd2 = document.createElement("td");
newtd2.innerHTML = dqty.innerHTML;
var newtd3 = document.createElement("td");
newtd3.innerHTML = dstype.innerHTML;

var newtd4 = document.createElement("td");
newtd4.innerHTML = dnature.innerHTML;

Paste the below content in the body section
<1table width="100%">
<1tbody id="tbl">

<1td><1input name="Add" type="button" value="add" onclick="return AddRow();">

<1div id="dcname" style="display:none; visibility:hidden"><1input name="cname[]" type="text" id="cname" size="10"><1/div>
<1div id="dqty" style="display:none; visibility:hidden"><1input type="text" name="qty[]" id="qty" size="10"><1/div>
<1div id="dstype" style="display:none; visibility:hidden"><1input type="text" name="stype[]" id="stype"><1/div>
<1div id="dnature" style="display:none; visibility:hidden">

Read XML Using PHP DOM

This tutorial is for PHP starters as well as for those who are using XML parser functions to read/write XML files. This tutorial will not go into details on XML. The focus will be more on the Document Object Model (DOM) extension.

This should not be confused with DOM XML extension, which is not packaged into PHP5 and will never be (according to DOM extension allows PHP users to use the DOM functions. The function then allow users to read, write, rename tags and do all types of crazy stuff with XML documents.

First we need a XML document to experiment with. I have created a simple XML document and named it readfromxml.xml


<1?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>



<1pagename>Current page name<1/pagename>

<1title>Title for Pagename<1/title>

<1keyword>meta keyword for current page<1/keyword>

<1description>meta Description for current page<1/description>



This XML document stores pagename,title of the page,keyword for the page and description for the page. You can create one for any type of webpage to create keywords, description dynamically & manage for every single page. Every note in this XML file beings < with and ends with >. Within the tab I have created a tab for the keyword ( ),description ( ),title ( ),pagename ().

Next step is to read this XML and display the results on a web page.

Create another file and call it readfromxml.php. Copy the following code into it and run it.

// DOMElement->getElementsByTagName() -- Gets elements by tagname
// nodeValue : The value of this node, depending on its type.
// Load XML File. You can use loadXML if you wish to load XML data from a string

$objDOM = new DOMDocument();
$objDOM->load("readfromxml.xml"); //make sure path is correct

$note = $objDOM->getElementsByTagName("head");
// for each note tag, parse the document and get values for
// tasks and details tag.

foreach( $note as $value )

$page = $value->getElementsByTagName("pagename");
$page = $page->item(0)->nodeValue;
if($page == $pagename)
$title = $value->getElementsByTagName("title");
$title = $title->item(0)->nodeValue;

$keywords = $value->getElementsByTagName("keyword");
$keywords = $keywords->item(0)->nodeValue;

$description = $value->getElementsByTagName("description");
$description = $description->item(0)->nodeValue;


create a webpage as index.php and copy the following content and paste it in index.php

$pagename = "index.php";
<1!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<1html xmlns="">
<1meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />



This tutorial is a kick start for beginners. You can retreive data from a database and create a XML document on-the-fly with DOM functions, rename tabs in an existing XML document and validate format.

Note : Remove 1 on every tag

Get the current page url using php

//This function returns the full url of the current page
function getcurrentpageurl() {
$pageURL = 'http';
if ($_SERVER["HTTPS"] == "on") {$pageURL .= "s";}
$pageURL .= "://";
if ($_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"] != "80") {
} else {
return $pageURL;
echo getcurrentpageurl();

//This function returns the filename alone
function getcurrentpagename() {
return substr($_SERVER["SCRIPT_NAME"],strrpos($_SERVER["SCRIPT_NAME"],"/")+1);

echo "The current page name is ".getcurrentpageurl();
