Converting data into HTML table


Recommended Posts

I am new to coding and working on a website, I have data coming from my data base in this format to my product description area:


Length=8 in|Width=0.180 in|Thickness=|Size Group=|Bundle Diam=1.9000 in [Max]|Material=Nylon|Color=Weather Resistant


I need to somehow convert the data to this format in an HTML table in the same area:


Length 8 in

Width 0.180 in


Size Group

Bundle Diam 1.9000 in [Max]


Color=Weather Resistant


I know it seems friggin easy, but I am stumped!


Any help will be appreciated!

explode on the |  (pipe). Use foreach to loop over the returned array. In the loop start a new table row (<tr>) and a new table cell (<td>). For the current item use str_replace to replace the = with  </td><td>  after close the table cell (</td>)  and  the table row (</tr>). Code:

$data = 'Length=8 in|Width=0.180 in|Thickness=|Size Group=|Bundle Diam=1.9000 in [Max]|Material=Nylon|Color=Weather Resistant';
echo '<table>';
foreach(explode('|', $data) as $item)
   echo '<tr><th>'.str_replace('=', '</th><td>', $item) . '</td></tr>';
echo '</table>';
