echoing strings + object calls

Recommended Posts

<?php


require_once('init.php');


function print_rows($inmates)
{
    foreach($inmates as $inmate)
    {
        echo "<tr>";
        echo "<td><span class='rightpadding'>$inmate->get_property('first_name');</span>$inmate->get_property('number');<span class='rightpadding'>(W)</span>Facility<br /><br /><span class='dates'>8-05-15 <span class='red'>/</span> 8-08-15</span><a href=''><span class='edit'>Edit</span></a></td>";
        echo "</tr>";
    }
}


?>

In the code above my inmate object method calls are being displayed a literal strings in the output. How can I get these to expand in this string? I also tried concatenation with the . operator but the page wouldn't load at all using that method.

your concatenation probably didn't work due to the semi-colons ;. those only go on the end of php statements. when not within a quoted string, the first semi-colon that was encountered was telling php that was the end of the statement. everything following that probably didn't make any sense to php and it was throwing a syntax error.

 

to put the object method calls in the string, you would need to put { } around each object method call so that php can figure out what part is the reference to the object. you would also remove the semi-colons, unless you literally want the ; character to be in the output.
