PHP Online opinion poll: adding data and viewing result

Now we will see how to add the selected option to the table. While storing the selected options ( answers ) we will see that the poll id and the session id is also stored along with the option selected. Here we have to see that if the visitor has clicked the submit button without selecting any option then we have to show an error message without adding data to the table. We will use php function isset() to check the presence of the selected option and with a set of if else condition we can decide on to add to table or show error message. If we find that the visitor selected the option and submitted then we will find the session ID and insert the data to the table.

require "config.php";
if(!isset($opt)){echo "<font face='Verdana' size='2' color=red>Please select one option and then submit</font>";}

$sql=$dbo->prepare("insert into plus_poll_ans(s_id,qst_id,opt)  values(:s_id,:qst_id,:opt)");
$sql->bindParam(':s_id',$s_id,PDO::PARAM_STR, 100);
$sql->bindParam(':qst_id',$qst_id,PDO::PARAM_INT, 1);
echo "Thanks for your views, Please <a href=view_poll_result.php>click here to view the poll result</a> or click here to visit the <a href=poll_display.php>php poll script tutorial</a>";
echo " Not able to add data please contact Admin ";

//$qt=mysql_query("insert into plus_poll_ans(s_id,qst_id,opt) values('$s_id',$qst_id,'$opt')");
//echo mysql_error();
We will move to display result page to show the result to the visitor. As we have inserted the selected data to another table, we will collect all the records for which the question id = the current question id. This will display in selecting the result of current poll only. To display past poll results we can change the ID to different values. Let us set the question id to 1 for the first poll result to display. To calculate the percentage of the options selected we will also find out the total number of answers submitted. We will use number format function of PHP to display two decimal places for the figures in percentage. Then we will find out the answers by using sql group by function.

To display the image we will use the width of the image tag. The width of the image will vary based on the value of the option. This we can create one horizontal bar graph for the selected options.

require "config.php";
echo "<font size='2' face='Verdana' color='#000000'> The  Poll from ( Poll ID = 1)</font>";

$qst_id=1; // change this to change the poll 

/* Find out the question first */

$count=$dbo->prepare("select qst from plus_poll where qst_id=:qst_id");

//echo " Success <br>";
$row = $count->fetch(PDO::FETCH_OBJ);
echo "Database Problem";
echo "<br><b><br>$row->qst</b><br>"; // display the question
/* for percentage calculation we will find out the total number
 of answers ( options submitted ) given by the visitors */

$count=$dbo->prepare("select ans_id from plus_poll_ans where qst_id=:qst_id");
echo " No of records = ".$rt; 

/* Find out the answers and display the graph */
$sql="select count(*) as no,qst,plus_poll_ans.opt from plus_poll,plus_poll_ans where plus_poll.qst_id=plus_poll_ans.qst_id and plus_poll.qst_id='$qst_id' group by opt";

echo "<table cellpadding='0' cellspacing='0' border='0' >";
foreach ($dbo->query($sql) as $noticia) {
 echo "<tr>
    <td width='40%' bgcolor='#F1F1F1'>&nbsp;<font size='1' face='Verdana' color='#000000'>$noticia[opt]</font></td>";
$width2=$noticia['no'] *10 ; /// change here the multiplicaiton factor //////////
$ct=sprintf ("%01.2f", $ct); // number formating 

echo "    <td width='10%' bgcolor='#F1F1F1'>&nbsp;<font size='1' face='Verdana' color='#000000'>($ct %)</font></td><td width='50%' bgcolor='#F1F1F1'>&nbsp;<img src='graph.jpg' height=10 width=$width2></td>
 echo "<tr>
    <td  bgcolor='#ffffff' colspan=2></td></tr>";
//echo $noticia['sel'],$noticia[no]."<br>";
echo "</table>";
echo "</font>";
