PHP - Display User Details

In this tutorial we will create a Display User Details using PHP. This code can display complete detail of a user in the table when user click the view detail button. The code use MySQLi SELECT query to display a specific row data in the table that binded in a button in order to view the complete details in the modal dialog. This a user-friendly program feel free to modify and use it to your system.

We will be using PHP as a scripting language and interpreter that is used primarily on any webserver including xamp, wamp, etc. It is being use to any famous websites because of modern approach as its today.

Getting Started:

First you have to download & install XAMPP or any local server that run PHP scripts. Here's the link for XAMPP server

And, this is the link for the bootstrap that i used for the layout design

Creating Database

Open your database web server then create a database name in it db_detail, after that click Import then locate the database file inside the folder of the application then click ok.

Creating the database connection

Open your any kind of text editor(notepad++, etc..). Then just copy/paste the code below then name it conn.php.

  1. <?php
  2. $conn=mysqli_connect("localhost", "root", "", "db_detail");
  4. if(!$conn){
  5. die("Error: Failed to connect to database!");
  6. }
  7. ?>

Creating The Interface

This is where we will create a simple form for our application. To create the forms simply copy and write it into your text editor, then save it as index.php.

  1. <!DOCTYPE html>
  2. <html lang="en">
  3. <head>
  4. <meta charset="UTF-8" name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"/>
  5. <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.css" />
  6. </head>
  7. <body>
  8. <nav class="navbar navbar-default">
  9. <div class="container-fluid">
  10. <a class="navbar-brand" href="">Sourcecodester</a>
  11. </div>
  12. </nav>
  13. <div class="col-md-3"></div>

Creating PHP Query

This code contains the php query of the application. This code will store the form inputs to the MySQLi server. To do that just copy and write this block of codes inside the text editor, then save it as save.php.

  1. <?php
  2. require_once'conn.php';
  4. if(ISSET($_POST['save'])){
  5. $firstname=$_POST['firstname'];
  6. $lastname=$_POST['lastname'];
  7. $gender=$_POST['gender'];
  8. $age=$_POST['age'];
  9. $address=$_POST['address'];
  10. $username=$_POST['username'];
  11. $password=$_POST['password'];
  13. mysqli_query($conn, "INSERT INTO `user` VALUES('', '$firstname', '$lastname', '$gender', '$age', '$address', '$username', '$password')") or die(mysqli_error());
  14. header("location: index.php");
  15. }
  16. ?>
