Problems with glob()

Recommended Posts

I'm using glob to bring about all the smileys in my one directory into a select menu.  It does this fine, I select my smile i chose to use, then submit the form, during the writing however, instead of chosing the name of the smile hypothetically smile1.gif, it numerically lables the smiles like an array.  My problem is I need to use the exact name for the smile and I need to also attach <img src="$_POST[''smile]"> into my php file that does the writing process.  I will post my code thus far, anyone who can help is greatly appreciated.


<form action="journalbox.php" method="POST"><p><b>Date</b><input type="text" value="<b><?php echo date('F j, Y, g:i a');?

></b>" name="date" size="30"></p><p><b>Mood</b>

<select name="mood"><option value="apathetic">apathetic<option value="overjoyed">overjoyed<option

value="inquisitive">inquisitive<option value="outlandish">outlandish<option value="appreciative">appreciative<option

value="confused">confused<option value="displeased">displeased<option value="disgruntled">disgruntled<option

value="sick">sick<option value="terrified">terrified<option value="mental">mental<option value="eruditic">eruditic<option

value="forlorn">forlorn<option value="convuluted">convuluted<option value="ingenious">ingenious<option

value="arrogant">arrogant<option value="free">free<option value="stupid">stupid<option value="moronic">moronic<option

value="pointless">pointless</select><br /><br />
<select name="smile">

This is the form
[code=php:0]
<?php

$files = glob("smile/*.gif");
##Display $files 
foreach ($files as $key => $value)
{
    echo '<option value="' . $key . '">' . $value . '</option>';
}
?>
</select>
<p><b>entry</b><TEXTAREA NAME="entry" COLS="80" ROWS="5" WRAP="virtual"></TEXTAREA></P><p><input type="submit" name="submit"

value="send your entry!"></p></form>
[/code]

this is the file that writes to my directory
[code=php:0]
<?php
$filename = "journalaug_sept.txt";
$handle = fopen($filename, 'a');
$write_string = $_POST['date'] . "<font family=arial>" . "<BR>" . "<BR>";
$write_string .= $_POST['mood'] . "<font family=arial>" . "<BR>" . "<BR>";
$write_string .= $_POST['smile'] . "<br>";
$write_string .= $_POST['entry'] . "<font family=arial>" . "<BR>" . "<BR>";
$write_string .= "<HR NOSHADE SIZE=4 COLOR=BLUE>";

fwrite($handle, $write_string);
fclose($handle);
?>
<h1>Sucessfully posted</h1>

<br><br>
<?php
echo $_POST['date'] . "<br>";
echo $_POST['mood'] . "<br>";
echo $_POST['smile'] . $_POST['value'] . "<br>";
echo $_POST['entry'] . "<br>";
?>

You are passing the array key that holds the filename, not the actual filename. It doesn't actually look like you need the key, so try this:
[code]<?php
foreach(glob("smile/*.gif") as $f) echo "<option value='$f'>$f</option>";
?>[/code]

[code=php:0]foreach(glob(realpath('smile') . '/*.gif') as $file)
{
    echo '<option value="' . hmtlentities($file) . '">' . htmlentities($file) . '</option>';
}[/code]
