MySQL Question

I want to display data inserted into database after submission

I have a generator script, it basically generates random tokens and stores them in a MySQL database. Several people will use it and what I want to do it basically show the generated tokens that were just generated on the generation page so that when they generate tokens and they're all mixed up with others they can easily copy the ones they generated without having to go through the whole table of everyone's tokens.

I have put the entire form and script here, the submission part works perfect, just wondering about that extra feature and if it would be a possibility.

function randString($length, $charset='ABCEFGHJKLMNPRTUVWXY23456789' )
$str='' ;
while ($length--) {
$str.=$charset[mt_rand(0, $count - 1) ];
return $str;

if (isset($_POST[ 'create'])) {
$token_semi_quantity=0 ;
$token_combo=$ _POST[ 'howmany'];
$seller=$_POST[ 'seller'];
while ($token_semi_quantity < $token_combo) {
$token=randString(4) . "-" . randString(4) . "-" . randString(4);
$token_info=$_POST[ 'tokeninfo'];
$token_explode=e xplode( ',', $token_info);
$NowDateTime=date( "Y-m-d H:i:s");
// Log dat shit
$WhoGenDatToken=$userRow[ 'username'] . ' Generated Token <b>' . $token . '</b> at ' . date( "m-d-Y h:i") . ' CST.';
$gen_token=new CONNECT;
$insert_token=( "INSERT INTO `tokens`
(`id`, `token`, `time`, `generatedby`,
`timegenerated`, `used`, `seller`,
VALUES ('NULL', :generatetokenVal,
:generatetokentimeVal, :generatetokenadminName,
:generateDateTime, '0',
:generatetokenSeller, :generatetokenDesc);
INSERT INTO `admin_act` (`activity`)
$stmt->execute(Array( ':generatetokenVal' => $token,
':generatetokentimeVal' => $token_time,
':generatetokenadminName' => $adminName,
':generateDateTime' => $NowDateTime,
':generatetokenSeller' => $seller,
':generatetokenDesc' => $token_desc,
':WhoGenDatTokenDen' => $WhoGenDatToken ));

Thanks for any help in advanced.

Inside the while loop, store the token into an array/collection/list

// inside while loop, after $token = ...
$generatedtoken[] = $token;

then wherever you want to show/list them:

foreach($generatedtoken as $token) {
    echo $token; // some markup maybe added

appending to a var that's not considered an array (yet) is probably dirty, so before the if or somewhere appropriate, instantiate the array.

$generatedtoken = array();
