Hi. I am using SmartyValidate and a master switch statement in my index.php to manage my page navigation.

Code:
switch($p) {
case 2:
  # Validate form
  break;
case 1:
  # Show page with form
  break;
}


I have about 150 lines of code in Case 1 for the smarty template that gets displayed. Case 2 validates a form in the Case 1 template and performs some database operations before displaying a success/failure template.

My question is, when the form is discovered invalid in Case 2, how to I go about executing all of the code in Case 1 to re-display the first template? I really want to avoid copy+pasting the code from Case 1 into Case 2. Also, I want to avoid using the one case statement for displaying the form and posting it back.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to go about solving this programming problem?

Cheers.

OK. After long talks, the best option is to refactor the code so postbacks go to the originating case statement. There's a lot of code, so it will take a long time. But there's a lot more code to write, so it's a good idea to clean it up now and avoid future problems.

Thanks for listening.
