**solved** Array Help

Recommended Posts

Hello,
First off, I'm new to PHP and trying to store values returned from a call to another site. I get the results in the following form:
Array
(
[ResultSet] => Array
(
[Result] => Array
(
[precision] => address
[Latitude] => 42.306295
[Longitude] => -83.244328
[Address] => 22000 MICHIGAN AVE
[City] => DEARBORN
[State] => MI
[Zip] => 48124-2353
[Country] => US
)

)

)

Now I would like to pull the values stored for Latitude and Longitude for comparison to other values I have to calculate distance between two points. I've looked all over and just can't seem to figure out how to access the values. I feel like an idiot because I'm sure there is a simple solution but have yet to be able to get it working. I can also get the serialized data if thats easier to work with.

Please help! I'm at a standstill. Thanks in advance for any help that may be provided!

You can access an assosiative array as such

$ArrayName['City']

here is the code where I unserialize and pull the array contents to be displayed:

$phpobj2 = unserialize($response);

echo '<pre>';
print_r($phpobj2);
$temptest2 = print_r($phpobj2, true);

I tried

$st_lat=$temptest2['Latitude'];
printf("st_lat: %d ", $st_lat);

and that didn't work, the displayed value is '0'. If i try displaying it as a string it comes back as 'A'. Am I calling the right array name?

Thanks for the quick response!

Assuming the array you posted is called $data

[code]$latitude = $data['ResultSet']['Result']['Latitude'];

$longitude = $data['ResultSet']['Result']['Longitude'];[/code]

Thanks for your help. That did it. I knew it was something stupid I was doing... For anyone who looks at this for help, here is the code that is the solution:

$st_lat = $phpobj2['ResultSet']['Result']['Latitude'];
$st_long = $phpobj2['ResultSet']['Result']['Longitude'];
