Hello

 

I am using the code below along with an XML file that contains all the data that the php below searches and suggests matching words and displays the text.

 

I am able to adjust the font of the outputted text by applying a class to the table.

 

This does not have any effect on the colour or decoration of the hyper link that is produced. I know need to add an <a class="links"> to the code some where and then apply a non decoration class but i just can't work out how to apply the html within the PHP.

 

I guess its needs to be added to the echo parts at the bottom ?

 

Many thanks in advance !

 

 

<?php
$xmlDoc=new DOMDocument();
$xmlDoc->load("links.xml");

$x=$xmlDoc->getElementsByTagName('link');

//get the q parameter from URL
$q=$_GET["q"];

//lookup all links from the xml file if length of q>0
if (strlen($q)>0)
{
$hint="";
for($i=0; $i<($x->length); $i++)
 {
 $y=$x->item($i)->getElementsByTagName('title');
 $z=$x->item($i)->getElementsByTagName('url');
 if ($y->item(0)->nodeType==1)
   {
   //find a link matching the search text
   if (stristr($y->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue,$q))
     {
     if ($hint=="")
       {
       $hint="<a href='" . 
       $z->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue . 
       "' target='_blank'>" . 
       $y->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue . "</a>";
       }
     else
       {
       $hint=$hint . "<br /><a href='" . 
       $z->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue . 
       "' target='_blank'>" . 
       $y->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue . "</a>";
       }
     }
   }
 }
}

// Set output to "no suggestion" if no hint were found
// or to the correct values
if ($hint=="")
 {
 $response="no suggestion";
 }
else
 {
 $response=$hint;
 }

//output the response
echo $response;
?>
