Hi again  :-[,

I am stuck with simplest problem of array .. i searched all forums and couldn't find similar problem..

Iam collecting array post data "data m_name[]" from a form, but I don't know how to get 2 array variables at the same time, here's what I tried :

 

<form action="" method="post" name="myForm">
<div>
      <input type="text" name="m_name[]" />
      <input type="text" name="m_name[][email]" />
</div>
<div>
      <input type="text" name="m_name[]" />
      <input type="text" name="m_name[][email]" />
</div>
<div>
      <input type="text" name="m_name[]" />
      <input type="text" name="m_name[][email]" />
</div>
        <input type="submit" name="button" id="button" value="Submit" />
</form>

 

other page where I want to receive above array

 

<?php
if($_POST)
{

print_r($_POST['m_name']); // Output is : Array ( [0] => someone [1] => Array ( [email] => 3 ) [2] => someone two [3] => Array ( [email] => 4 ) [4] => someone three [5] => Array ( [email] => 5 ) )


while (list ($key,$val) = @each ( $_POST['m_name'])) { 
echo $val.val2 ???"<br/>"; // here I want to get both value $_POST['m_name'] and  $_POST['m_name'] ['email'] since I am putting them in db << 
}
}
?>

 

I want to get both values of $_POST['m_name'], I don't know how to do it or is there another way to do it?

thankx in advance!! phpfreaks have been very helpful ..

If it was me, I believe I'd do something like the code below, for which a print_r($_POST) will output this:

[pre]

Array

(

    [name] => Array

        (

            [0] => (first name value)

            [1] => (second name value)

            [2] => (third name value)

        )

 

    => Array

        (

            [0] => (first email value)

            [1] => (second email value)

            [2] => (third email value)

        )

 

    [button] => Submit

)

[/pre]

 

In other words, the first set of fields would be

$_POST['name'][0] and $_POST['email'][0]

the next would be

$_POST['name'][1] and $_POST['email'][1], etc., etc.

 

<form action="" method="post" name="myForm">
<div>
      <input type="text" name="name[]" />
      <input type="text" name="email[]" />
</div>
<div>
      <input type="text" name="name[]" />
      <input type="text" name="email[]" />
</div>
<div>
      <input type="text" name="name[]" />
      <input type="text" name="email[]" />
</div>
        <input type="submit" name="button" id="button" value="Submit" />
</form>

hi thanks for reply.. yea i thought about that too,  but i want to put those values together in db..

 

while (each $val1, $val2) {
$sql = "INSERT INTO table name (name,email)($val1,$val2);
}

It will be great if i could combine 2 array like below so i can put them in sql db with while loop.. just tell me it cant be done in php lol  :(.. thankx

 

Array
(
    [0] => $val1, $val2
    [1] => $val1, $val2
    [2] => $val1, $val2
)

Hi, yea similar to : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/842956/php-foreach-loop-through-multidimensional-array

 

but the solution he provided doesn't apply to my problem i guess.., only thing I want to do is get array of "m_name[] and m_name[]" and insert them in db with loop.

 

here's array output :

 

Array
(
    [0] => someone
    [1] => Array
        (
            [email] => someone@gmail.com
        )

    [2] => sometwo
    [3] => Array
        (
            [email] => sometwo@gmail.com
        )

    [4] => somethree
    [5] => Array
        (
            [email] => somethree@gmail.com
        )

)

<form action="" method="post" name="myForm">
<div>
      <input type="text" name="person[0][name]" />
      <input type="text" name="person[0][email]" />
</div>
<div>
      <input type="text" name="person[1][name]" />
      <input type="text" name="person[1][email]" />
</div>
<div>
      <input type="text" name="person[2][name]" />
      <input type="text" name="person[2][email]" />
</div>
        <input type="submit" name="button" id="button" value="Submit" />
</form>

 

<?php
// $_POST will then essentially look like this array:
$arr = array(
    array( 'name' => 'Bob', 'email' => 'bob@domain.com' ),
    array( 'name' => 'Sally', 'email' => 'sally@domain.com' ),
    array( 'name' => 'Fred', 'email' => 'fred@domain.com' )
);
// Make your sql statement
$insert_sql = "insert into `mytable` ( `name`, `email` ) values ";
// Add values parts
$parts = array();
foreach( $arr as $person ) {
    $parts[] = sprintf( "( '%s', '%s' )", mysql_real_escape_string( $person[ 'name' ] ), mysql_real_escape_string( $person[ 'email' ] ) );
}
// Append the parts
$insert_sql .= implode( ', ', $parts );
// Run query
$rv = mysql_query( $insert_sql );
// ...
?>
