I'm off to spend a couple of days in the Peak District. Myself and a friend are going to walk Grains in the Water & Alport Castles (hopefully finding this plane crash) and Edale Circuit from Hope the following day, with a stop over in Bamford.
It's not very often said friend and I find the time to get in t'ills and even now I feel like it might be a stupid thing to do. We've hired a car for a few days and it comes with half a tank of petrol (gas to the Americans). This might be all the fuel we have available. The nation has gone stupid again and is panic-buying fuel, despite being warned not to. Chances are we'll get stuck in them there hills for quite a while, unless we find a supply en route.
Anyway, while I'm gone, I have something for you. Remember when I got all fired up about Ajax? Well, I created a sample database to show how useful it could be to us Domino-heads. The database is meant as an accompaniment to the article I planned. That article might take longer than I originally thought, so here's the demo site to play with in the mean time.
It shows how you can perform @DBLookups using Ajax. It works, but I'm not sure if it makes sense as a demonstration. What do you think? It contains documents that record details of books - author, cover type, title, pages etc. The five fields at the top of the form are the arguments to a standard @DBLookup. You can change the last three of these, press the button and get the new results without a page refresh. Try changing the last field from 3 to 2 and instead of number of pages you will see the name of the book's author.
