multidimensional array search/find


Recommended Posts

Hi. I have a list of products and each have parts which in turn have their own codes. I need to find the correct part when I have the code.


So in the example below, I already have the code '8R195'. I want to check through all the arrays and find which one contains this code, so the output would be A in this case.


Any help greatly appreciated



$item1 => Array


('A') => array('825R15', '825R16', '65R17', '21575R175', '8R195'),

('B') => array('10R225', '825x20', '900R20'),

('C') => array('15R225', '29575R225', '30570R225', '38565R225')

function yourSearch($needle, $haystack)
 foreach($haystack as $i => $v)
   if(array_search($needle, $v) !== false) return $i;

 return false;

Something like the above?


So, echo yourSearch('8R195', $item1); should give A
