    require() based on query string values

    I would like to set a page that prints a header based on the client's screen resolution. I am attempting to do this with some JavaScript on the index.htm page that retrieves the resolution information and passes it, via a query string, to a php page that uses selection to require() one of two headers depending on the query string variable's value.

    *****Script to get resolution*****

    Code:
    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
    
    function choose_header() {
    	if (window.screen.width==800 && window.screen.height==600) {
    		window.location.href="/mc/dev/hometest.php?sr=1"
    	} else {
    		window.location.href="/mc/dev/hometest.php?sr=2"
    	}
    }
    
    </script>
    *****************************

    ******Script to print header******
    Code:
    <?php
    	function print_header($res) {
    		if ($res == 1) {
    			require('header_800.inc');
    		} elseif (res == 2) {
    			require('header_1024.inc');
    		} else {
    			echo 	'</head>'."/n".
    					'<body>'."/n".
    					"<h1>res: $res</h1>";
    		}
    	
    	$reso = $_GET['sr'];
    	
    	if (isset($reso)) {
    		print_header($reso);
    	} else {
    		echo '</head><body><h1>$reso is not set.</h1>';
    	}
    ?>
    *****************************

    The problem is that the server does not render the php script at all. I set up a simple php page with a single require() statement which printed one of the aforementioned headers:
    Code:
    <?php
    	require('header_1024.inc');
    ?>
    This worked just fine.

    I also wrote a script to try and test values of the query string variable:
    Code:
    <?php
    	
    	$reso = $_GET['sr'];
    	
    	if (empty($reso)) {
    		echo '<h1>$reso is empty.</h1>';
    	} elseif (isset($reso)) {
    		echo '<h1>$reso is'.$reso.'</h1>'
    	}
    ?>
    This script was not rendered either.

    Examples can be seen using the following links:
    hometest.php (redirect via index.htm: query string value passed)
    hometest.php (direct link: no query string value passed)
    myphp.php (test page for include file and php engine)
    foo.php (script to test query string values: no values passed)

    Questions........

    Have I passed the value from the JavaScript correctly?

    Have I retrieved the variable correctly in the php scripts?

    Why aren't hometest.php and foo.php rendered while myphp.php is?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    You're javascript looks ok... For your PHP, try this:

    PHP Code:
    if (isset($_GET["sr"])) {
        
    $sr $_GET["sr"];
        if (
    $sr == 1) {
            require(
    'header_800.inc');
        }
        else if (
    $sr == 2) {
            require(
    'header_1024.inc');
        }
        else {
            echo 
    "header not set";
        }

    Issue Resolved

    Thanks, pyro: the new php did the trick. I still don't understand why the old code was failing; I'd like to know so that I don't make the same mistake again. Was it possibly that I used single quotes rather than double on the $_GET index?

    Thanks again for the fix.

    This part is going to be a problem:

    } elseif (res == 2) {

    should be:

    } elseif ($res == 2) {

    hence the screen name...

    I can't believe I missed that. I must have checked over that tiny script 100 times.


    Thanks again.
