Loop question

I have the following code:

 <?php
                  for ($i =0, $t = time(); $i< 7; ++$i) {
                      echo strftime('<li class = "inline">%a <br /><a href="http://calendar.site.com/app.php?tab=events&query=&site=name&tpl=EventSearchAllESD&SearchKeyword=&SearchDate=%Y%m%d&SearchDateEnd=%Y%m%d&SearchLocation=&SearchPrice=&SearchCategory"> %d</a>', $t+$i*3600*24) ."</li>";
                  }
       ?>

the code just produces 7 different list items and the appropriate date string in the URL

I need to modify the code to display 7 different div's and I am having trouble

<!-- THIS IS THE FIRST DIV - ID = 0 -->
            <div class="square" id="day0">
                  <a href="href="http://calendar.site.com/app.php?tab=events&query=&site=name&tpl=EventSearchAllESD&SearchKeyword=&SearchDate=%Y%m%d&SearchDateEnd=%Y%m%d&SearchLocation=&SearchPrice=&SearchCategory">
            </div>

<!-- THIS IS THE SECOND DIV - ID = 1 -->
            <div class="square" id="day1">
                  <a href="href="http://calendar.site.com/app.php?tab=events&query=&site=name&tpl=EventSearchAllESD&SearchKeyword=&SearchDate=%Y%m%d&SearchDateEnd=%Y%m%d&SearchLocation=&SearchPrice=&SearchCategory">
            </div>

<!-- THIS IS THE THIRD DAY DIV - ID = 2 -->
            <div class="square" id="day2">
                  <a href="href="http://calendar.site.com/app.php?tab=events&query=&site=name&tpl=EventSearchAllESD&SearchKeyword=&SearchDate=%Y%m%d&SearchDateEnd=%Y%m%d&SearchLocation=&SearchPrice=&SearchCategory">
            </div>


this would go 7 days all the way to div id = 6

the SearchDate=%Y%m%d&SearchDateEnd=%Y%m%d& in the URL would also have to reflect the proper date.

Can anyone help me out with this?

Just some small changes to your existing code:


<?php
  $searchdate=date('ymd',$_GET['SearchDate']);
  $searchenddate=date('ymd',$_GET['SearchEndDate']);
  for ($i =0, $t = time(); $i< 7; ++$i) {
    printf("<div class=\"square\" id=\"day%u\"><a href=\"http://calendar.site.com/app.php?tab=events&query=&site=name&tpl=EventSearchAllESD&SearchKeyword=&SearchDate=%s&SearchDateEnd=%s&SearchLocation=&SearchPrice=&SearchCategory\"></div>",$i,$searchdate,$searchenddate);
  }
?>

I forgot the link display text and the </a> to close the tag, but you should get the idea from that.

that kind of works, b ut all my dates are coming up as

691231

instead of the corresponding day of the week

http://calendar.site.com/app.php?tab=events&query=&site=name&tpl=EventSearchAllESD&SearchKeyword=&SearchDate=691231&SearchDateEnd=691231&SearchLocation=&SearchPrice=&SearchCategory

>>> [ ... ] SearchDate=691231 [ ... ]

That date is coming up as December 31, 1969.  Bad date parsing, is all.  Alter the code so that it is expecting a 4-digit year, and the fix below should work.  Note that the strtotime() call is redundant, but it does provide some basic conformity to the input data when it prints out the links.


<?php
  $searchdate=date('Ymd',strtotime($_GET['SearchDate']));
  $searchenddate=date('Ymd',strtotime($_GET['SearchEndDate']));
  for ($i =0, $t = time(); $i< 7; ++$i) {
    printf("<div class=\"square\" id=\"day%u\"><a href=\"http://calendar.site.com/app.php?tab=events&query=&site=name&tpl=EventSearchAllESD&SearchKeyword=&SearchDate=%s&SearchDateEnd=%s&SearchLocation=&SearchPrice=&SearchCategory\">link $i</a></div>",$i,$searchdate,$searchenddate);
  }
?>

I'm still getting 1969 with that code

&SearchDate=19691231&SearchDateEnd=19691231

also, the links are supposed to bring up the appropriate date

ie: if today is 12/04/2007

link0= &SearchDate=2007/12/04&SearchDateEnd=2007/12/04
link1= &SearchDate=2007/12/05&SearchDateEnd=2007/12/05
link2= &SearchDate=2007/12/06&SearchDateEnd=2007/12/06


etc..

I misunderstood what the loop was for.  Here's the revised code using the loop counter to construct the date, with the formatting you wanted from your last post:


<?
  $z = time();
  for ($i =0; $i< 7; ++$i) {
    $thedate = date("Y/m/d", $z + ($i*86400));
    printf("<div class=\"square\" id=\"day%u\"><a href=\"http://calendar.site.com/app.php?tab=events&query=&site=name&tpl=EventSearchAllESD&SearchKeyword=&SearchDate=%s&SearchDateEnd=%s&SearchLocation=&SearchPrice=&SearchCategory\">link $i</a></div>",$i,$thedate,$thedate);
  }
?>
