Repeat Region with a difference.
 
Hey there.

I want to create a dynamic repeat region - with a difference. I dont want a bland list going down the page, i want to style it like this:
www.angelxtreme.com/products.php. I want the products to go three across, and down as many as needed to display the records. I want the product title, main image and blurb displayed, all of which is called from a MySql db. The blurb is going to be a cut down version of the main description, so how will i go about restricting it to x characters?

Any ideas on how i can go about this?

Cheers

Hi there,

Take a look at this tutorial:

http://www.macromedia.com/support/ul...ernate_colors/

It shows you the basic idea behind irregular repeated regions. I think it's easiest to create a standard repeated region, and then add some code to tweak it so it repeats three items on a row.
What you need to use is the Mod operator, to count the number of records you have already display.

What language are you building this in?

Cheers,

Imar
