Hello

To show my query data in a table i use the following code:

$myarray=array("NAME","STREET","POSTAL") and so on...

$result=("select * from my table");
while($row=mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
  reset($myarray);
  echo "<table>";
  while (current($myarray)) {
     echo "<tr><td>".current($myarray)."</td>";
     echo "<td>".$row[current($myarray)]."</td></tr>";
  }
  echo"</table>";
}

Now i want to make my page multi language and i want the description of each field in the selected language.

I try to do something like that:

the vars l_name ... comes from the selected language file

$myarray=array("NAME" => $l_name, "STREET" => $l_street, "POSTAL" => $l_postal);

$result=("select * from my table");
while($row=mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
  reset($myarray);
  echo "<table>";
  while (list($key,$value)=each(current($myarray)) {
     echo "<tr><td>".current($key)."</td>";
     echo "<td>".$row[current($value)]."</td></tr>";
  }
  echo"</table>";
}
 
This does not work.
Any idee how to do this???

Thanks,
seever

// Key of $myarray is a name of table field and value of $myarray is a display message, right?
$myarray=array("NAME" => $l_name, "STREET" => $l_street, "POSTAL" => $l_postal);

$result=("select * from my table");
while($row=mysql_fetch_array($result)) {

     print "<table>";
          foreach( $myarray as $FieldName => $DisplayFieldName )
               print "<tr><td>$DisplayFieldName</td><td>".
             $row[$FieldName]."</td></tr>";
     print "</table>";
} //EndWhile Getting eachrow

l_name, l_street ...
I use different laguage files but the variables are the same.

I call my language files with

$lang = "language/language_".$language.".inc";
require($lang);

my fieldnames in my DB are caling NAME, STREET, ....
