Why is it not recognising this variable and it is not outputting all the data

Below is my code:

 

 

 

  function outputModule($courseId, $courseName, $moduleId, $moduleName, $sessionData) 
    { 
    
        if(!count($sessionData)) 
        { 
            return false; 
        } 
    
        $markTotal = 0; 
        $markGrade = 0; 
        $weightSession = 0;
        $grade = ""; 
        $sessionsHTML = ""; 
    
        foreach($sessionData as $session) 
        { 
    
            $sessionsHTML .= "<p><strong>Session:</strong> {$session['SessionId']} <strong>Session Mark:</strong> {$session['Mark']}</strong> <strong>Session Weight Contribution</strong> {$session['SessionWeight']}%</p>\n"; 
            $markTotal += round($session['Mark'] / 100 * $session['SessionWeight']); 
            $weightSession  += ($session['SessionWeight']); 
            $markGrade = round($markTotal /  $weightSession * 100); 
                 
            if ($markGrade >= 70) 
            { 
                $grade = "A"; 
            } 
    
            else if ($markGrade >= 60 && $markGrade <= 69) 
            { 
                $grade = "B"; 
            } 
    
            else if ($markGrade >= 50 && $markGrade <= 59) 
            { 
                $grade = "C"; 
            } 
    
            else if ($markGrade >= 40 && $markGrade <= 49) 
            { 
                $grade = "D"; 
            } 
    
            else if ($markGrade >= 30 && $markGrade <= 39) 
            { 
                $grade = "E"; 
            } 
    
            else if ($markGrade >= 0 && $markGrade <= 29) 
            { 
                $grade = "F"; 
            } 
    } 
    
    	$courseHTML = "<p><br><strong>Course:</strong> {$courseId} - {$courseName}</p><br>\n";
        $moduleHTML = "<p><strong>Module:</strong> {$moduleId} - {$moduleName} <strong>Module Mark:</strong> {$markTotal} <strong>Mark Percentage:</strong> {$markGrade} <strong>Grade:</strong> {$grade} </p>\n"; 
    
        return $courseHTML . $moduleHTML . $sessionsHTML; 
    } 
    
    $output = ""; 
    
    $studentId = false; 
    $courseId  = false; 
    $moduleId  = false; 
    
    while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) 
    { 
    	
    	  if($courseId != $row['CourseId']) 
        { 
    
            //Course has changed 
            $courseName  = $row['CourseName'];
            $courseId = $row['CourseId']; 
    
            $output .= outputModule($courseId, $courseName);  
        }
    
        if($moduleId != $row['ModuleId']) 
        { 
    
            //Module has changed 
            if(isset($sessionsAry)) //Don't run function for first record 
            { 
    
                //Get output for last module and sessions 
                $output .= outputModule($courseId, $courseName, $moduleId, $moduleName, $sessionsAry); 
            } 
    
            //Reset sessions data array and Set values for new module 
    
            $sessionsAry = array(); 
            $moduleId    = $row['ModuleId']; 
            $moduleName  = $row['ModuleName']; 
        } 
             
        //Add session data to array for current module 
             
        $sessionsAry[] = array('SessionId'=>$row['SessionId'], 'Mark'=>$row['Mark'], 'SessionWeight'=>$row['SessionWeight']); 
             
    }    //Get output for last module 
    
    $output .= outputModule($moduleId, $moduleName, $sessionsAry); 
    
    //Display the output 
    echo $output; 

Below is the output:

 

 

    Notice: Undefined variable: sessionData in /web/stud/u0867587/Mobile_app/student_overall_grade.php on line 69

   

    Notice: Undefined variable: sessionData in /web/stud/u0867587/Mobile_app/student_overall_grade.php on line 69

   

    Course: INFO101 - Bsc Information Communication Technology

   

   

    Module: CHI2550 - Modern Database Applications Module Mark: 41 Mark Percentage: 68 Grade: B

   

    Session: AAB Session Mark: 72 Session Weight Contribution 20%

   

    Session: AAE Session Mark: 67 Session Weight Contribution 40%

 

There is suppose to be another module with its own sessions below this but it does not show it. Also it is giving me notices that $SessionData is undefined. Why can it not find the variable $SessionData?

 

Below is what it should of outputted:

 

Course: INFO101 - Bsc Information Communication Technology Course Mark Grade

Year: 3

 

 

Module: CHI2550 - Modern Database Applications Module Mark: 41 Mark Percentage: 68 Grade: B

Session: AAE Session Mark: 67 Session Weight Contribution 40%

 

 

Module: CHI2513 - Systems Strategy Module Mark: 31 Mark Percentage: 62 Grade: B

 

Session: AAD Session Mark: 61 Session Weight Contribution 50%

I understand that, can't belive I missed that. For the whole output it needs all veraibles from the function. But the problem strangly enough is that it gets rid of one notice, I still get one notice which is the same notice. What do I need to look at to get rid of the last notice problem.

It is the same line. It came with two notices with the same notice on the same line. I did what you told me to do and it got rid of one notice but not the other. Below is the latest output on the browser:

Below is the current code: (It is same as code in first post except I added $courseId and $courseName in the "output .=" near the bottom)

 

 function outputModule($courseId, $courseName, $moduleId, $moduleName, $sessionData) 
    { 
    
        if(!count($sessionData)) 
        { 
            return false; 
        } 
    
        $markTotal = 0; 
        $markGrade = 0; 
        $weightSession = 0;
        $grade = ""; 
        $sessionsHTML = ""; 
    
        foreach($sessionData as $session) 
        { 
    
            $sessionsHTML .= "<p><strong>Session:</strong> {$session['SessionId']} <strong>Session Mark:</strong> {$session['Mark']}</strong> <strong>Session Weight Contribution</strong> {$session['SessionWeight']}%</p>\n"; 
            $markTotal += round($session['Mark'] / 100 * $session['SessionWeight']); 
            $weightSession  += ($session['SessionWeight']); 
            $markGrade = round($markTotal /  $weightSession * 100); 
                 
            if ($markGrade >= 70) 
            { 
                $grade = "A"; 
            } 
    
            else if ($markGrade >= 60 && $markGrade <= 69) 
            { 
                $grade = "B"; 
            } 
    
            else if ($markGrade >= 50 && $markGrade <= 59) 
            { 
                $grade = "C"; 
            } 
    
            else if ($markGrade >= 40 && $markGrade <= 49) 
            { 
                $grade = "D"; 
            } 
    
            else if ($markGrade >= 30 && $markGrade <= 39) 
            { 
                $grade = "E"; 
            } 
    
            else if ($markGrade >= 0 && $markGrade <= 29) 
            { 
                $grade = "F"; 
            } 
    } 
    
    	$courseHTML = "<p><br><strong>Course:</strong> {$courseId} - {$courseName}</p><br>\n";
        $moduleHTML = "<p><strong>Module:</strong> {$moduleId} - {$moduleName} <strong>Module Mark:</strong> {$markTotal} <strong>Mark Percentage:</strong> {$markGrade} <strong>Grade:</strong> {$grade} </p>\n"; 
    
        return $courseHTML . $moduleHTML . $sessionsHTML; 
    } 
    
    $output = ""; 
    
    $studentId = false; 
    $courseId  = false; 
    $moduleId  = false; 
    
    while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) 
    { 
    	
    	  if($courseId != $row['CourseId']) 
        { 
    
            //Course has changed 
            $courseName  = $row['CourseName'];
            $courseId = $row['CourseId']; 
    
            $output .= outputModule($courseId, $courseName);  
        }
    
        if($moduleId != $row['ModuleId']) 
        { 
    
            //Module has changed 
            if(isset($sessionsAry)) //Don't run function for first record 
            { 
    
                //Get output for last module and sessions 
                $output .= outputModule($courseId, $courseName, $moduleId, $moduleName, $sessionsAry); 
            } 
    
            //Reset sessions data array and Set values for new module 
    
            $sessionsAry = array(); 
            $moduleId    = $row['ModuleId']; 
            $moduleName  = $row['ModuleName']; 
        } 
             
        //Add session data to array for current module 
             
        $sessionsAry[] = array('SessionId'=>$row['SessionId'], 'Mark'=>$row['Mark'], 'SessionWeight'=>$row['SessionWeight']); 
             
    }    //Get output for last module 
    
    $output .= outputModule($courseId, $courseName, $moduleId, $moduleName, $sessionsAry); 
    
    //Display the output 
    echo $output;

So for every output .= I have to include all variables? Because in that section I only want to it to output $CourseId and $CourseName? Plus it will come with notice that $moduleName and $moduleId is undefined if I include those variables in that particular ouptut as well as the $sessionData notice.

Uh, yeah, since that's how you defined your function.

 

Quick and dirty function lesson:

 

Functions have signatures.  These signatures are a function's name and the arguments listed in its argument list.  If you define a function with a certain signature (such as your function which requires four arguments), it will only work if you actually pass in four arguments.

 

It is possible to have a function that can take an arbitrary number of arguments.  That said, since you're struggling with the PHP 101 basics, it's best if you try to gain a solid understanding of the fundamentals first.

 

Start with the PHP online manual and move on from there.
