    PHP Include Text File

    Code:
    <html>
    <body>
    
    <?php include("Text.txt"); ?>
    
    </body>
    </html>
    I'm using this code to display a text file. However if I type:
    This
    Is
    A
    Test
    It will display in the browser as
    ThisIsATest
    How can I fix this?

    If you look at your source you will see that it actually displays

    This
    is
    a
    Test

    in the source

    However you are looking at it through a browser that renders html. Therefore you have to echo the html for new line which is either <br> or <br /> depending on what docutype declaration you are using. In this case none so I would just put

    Code:
    This<br />
    Is<br />
    A<br />
    Test<br />
    In Text.txt

    You can not say you know how to do something, until you can teach it to someone else.

    Another appracoh would be to use the php to replace new line characters with <br > Something like

    PHP Code:
    <html>
    <body>

    <?php 
    $str
    file_get_contents("Text.txt");
    $str nl2br($strtrue); // for XHMTL (in other words <br />). Use false for <br>. i.e $str = nl2br($str, false);
    echo $str;
    ?>

    </body>
    </html>

    I guess changing the plain text to actual html is not an option, so I'd suggest using <pre> tags.

    PHP Code:
    <html>
    <body>

    <pre>
    <?php include("Text.txt"); ?>
    </pre>

    </body>
    </html>

    Yea considering I have tons of files and lines I'd have to edit. Very simple solution. Saves me the time of editing over like 200 txt files.

    ALSO: I don't guess you would know how to make it work for links would you? Like:
    Code:
    <a href="#" onClick="ajaxwin=dhtmlwindow.open('ajaxbox', 'ajax', 'Textfile.txt', 'Ajax Win Title', 'width=650px,height=400px,left=300px,top=100px,resize=0,scrolling=1'); return false">Create/ Open Ajax Window</a>

    If needed here's the javascript to the link:
    Code:
    var dhtmlwindow={
    imagefiles:['codes/windowfiles/min.gif', 'codes/windowfiles/close.gif', 'codes/windowfiles/restore.gif', 'codes/windowfiles/resize.gif'], //Path to 4 images used by script, in that order
    ajaxbustcache: true, //Bust caching when fetching a file via Ajax?
    ajaxloadinghtml: '<b>Loading Page. Please wait...</b>', //HTML to show while window fetches Ajax Content?
    
    minimizeorder: 0,
    zIndexvalue:100,
    tobjects: [], //object to contain references to dhtml window divs, for cleanup purposes
    lastactivet: {}, //reference to last active DHTML window
    
    init:function(t){

    It will work.
    You can not say you know how to do something, until you can teach it to someone else.

    Tried. It does the same thing. The PRE will work for the including, but when I open a popup with just the text file it will load all jumbled up and no separations. So where could I place pre in my script to make it work for the popup?

    Then i would just use this

    PHP Code:
    <html>
    <body>

    <?php 
    $str
    file_get_contents("Text.txt");
    $str nl2br($strtrue); // for XHMTL (in other words <br />). Use false for <br>. i.e $str = nl2br($str, false);
    echo $str;
    ?>

    </body>
    </html>
    Which doesn't require changing any of your text files

    Yeah I wouldn't go into that JS and monkey patch it to your needs. Better change your link to
    Code:
    <a href="#" onClick="ajaxwin=dhtmlwindow.open('ajaxbox', 'ajax', 'text2html.php?file=Textfile.txt', 'Ajax Win Title', 'width=650px,height=400px,left=300px,top=100px,resize=0,scrolling=1'); return false">Create/ Open Ajax Window</a>
    and inside text2html.php you either wrap the text in <pre> tags or use timgolding's suggestion:

    PHP Code:
    <pre>
    <?php
    if (isset($_GET['file']) && file_exists($_GET['file'])){
        include(
    $_GET['file']);
    }
    ?>
    </pre>
    or

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    if (isset($_GET['file']) && file_exists($_GET['file'])){
        
    $strfile_get_contents($_GET['file']);
        
    $str nl2br($strtrue); // for XHMTL (in other words <br />). Use false for <br>. i.e $str = nl2br($str, false);
        
    echo $str;
    }
    ?>

    echo $str;
    }
    ?>
    The php file was for something else. The DHTML was also for something else. Thanks for helping with the php file I had that all done, but the php file is not going to be needed for the:
    Code:
    <a href="#" onClick="ajaxwin=dhtmlwindow.open('ajaxbox', 'ajax', 'Textfile.txt', 'Ajax Win Title', 'width=650px,height=400px,left=300px,top=100px,resize=0,scrolling=1'); return false">Create/ Open Ajax Window</a>
    I actually wanted the script to open it in the popup and have it displayed correctly, but a simple css change to white-space: pre; got everything fixed up for me.

    Thank you to everyone who has helped. You've helped a lot!

    Quoted form http://uk.php.net/manual/en/function.nl2br.php

    5.3.0 Added the optional is_xhtml parameter.
    Which tells me you are using an old version of php. Maybe php 4. so either upgrade to 5.3.0+ or use

    PHP Code:
    $str nl2br($str); 
    or make you own if its the wrong <br> or <br />

    PHP Code:

    $str
    =preg_replace('/(\r\n|\n|\r)/','<br />$1'$str); 
    P.S The make your own code is untested but should work?

    I don't guess there is a way to just make the server always do this is there? Cause using the php to make it work sucks. I'd have to go back and basically copy everything.

    What do you want the server to do exactly?

    Well here's the whole deal. I have about 200 text files and 200 links. I am using each link to popup a window with the text file loaded using this script:
    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...ndow/index.htm

    However when it pops up it just does the stupid
    ThisIsATest

    Instead of
    This
    Is
    A
    Test

    So if no one can edit the script is their a way to make the server always read the text file with separations. That way I can kill two birds with on stone.
