Dynamic Table with Pagination (Flat File)

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I have a list of youtube videos in a flat file database. I would like to print a thumbnail of these videos out to the end user in a table.

 

The results need to have pagination as well as a dynamic table so i can display say 3 rows and 3 columns per page.

 

The column amount will also need to be adjustable in case i wish to change the columns from 3 to 4 for example:



$video_file_data[];                 //This is the array in which all video info will be stored
$start = $_REQUEST['start'];        //pagination setting
$videos_per_page = 9;               //Show 9 Vids per page
$table_colums = 3;                  //Amount of columns needed to display results per page
$num = count ($video_file_data);    //Number of lines in data array
$max_pages = @ceil($num / $videos_per_page);   //Maximum number of Pages
$cur = @ceil($start / $videos_per_page)+1;
for($i=$start;$i<min($num,($start+$videos_per_page)+0);$i++)
 {
 list($date_added, $video_title, $youtube_url) = explode('|', trim($video_file_data[$i]));

    // <--- Table needs to go

}


The info stored in 

$video_file_data[]

would look something like this:


date 1."|".title 1."|".youtube url 1 
date 2."|".title 2."|".youtube url 2
date 3."|".title 3."|".youtube url 3
date 4."|".title 4."|".youtube url 4

Many thanks for the help :)

The logic is no different to pagination using a proper database.

Sorry but if by "proper database" you mean a SQL database, I have never worked with one so i have no idea about how they work

 

It is something I may look into in the future :)
