HI experts,

I need to find When a student is absent and the fieldname is ABSEND
I have 3 value that i put it in an array e.g: $student = array(18,22,34) where i retrieved from database
i called this array as ID's
since one week have 7 days so i create an array as array(1,2,3,4,5,6,7)

i do as follow

function ABSENt()
{
$IndexOrder = array(1,2,3,4,5,6,7);

  foreach($this->Getstudent as $student)
   {
      for ($j=0; $j<sizeof($IndexOrder);$j++)
     {
        $query = "SELECT ABSENT
                   FROM $ABSENTTABLE
                  WHERE STUDENT = \"$student\" AND INDEXORDER = $IndexOrder[$j]";
 
        $result = mysql_query($query);
       
         while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
           {
          $this->GetABSEND  .=  ''.$row['ABSENT'].'|';  
           }
     }
  }
  mysql_close($dbLink);
}
 
 
when i echo the result i get result like this

18|absent|absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent
22|absent|absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent
34|absent|absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent|absent|absent|no_absent|no_absent|no_absent


AS SEE ABOVE I DONT KNOW WHY THE IT WILL KEEP CONTINUE PRINT OUT THE PREVIOUS RESULT FIRST BEFORE IT PRINT THE NEW RESULT

$student is not defined. Either pass it in to the function as a parameter, or if it defined externally to the function declare it as a global. Passing it as a parameter is "best-practice" compared to using "global".

So, either this (preffered)

function ABSENt( $student )
{
$IndexOrder = array(1,2,3,4,5,6,7);

  foreach($this->Getstudent as $student)
   {



or this



function ABSENt()
{

global $student;

$IndexOrder = array(1,2,3,4,5,6,7);

  foreach($this->Getstudent as $student)
   {

hence this $this->Getstudent is to defined the student and i dont understand why need to return the value student again
furthermore my problem now is not that i cant get the student value but the result repeat again and again as shown above.

that mean everytime before it execute a new data it will execute the old data from the beginning
why like that

"hence this $this->Getstudent is to defined the student and i dont understand why need to return the value student"

Sorry - I missed the foreach. $student is defined. Even experts mess up!!! :-(

Moving on from that, make the following changes

 $query = "SELECT ABSENT
                   FROM $ABSENTTABLE
                  WHERE STUDENT = \"$student\" AND INDEXORDER = $IndexOrder[$j]";

echo "$query<br>";
 
        $result = mysql_query($query);
       
         while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
           {

print_r( $row ); echo "<br>";

          $this->GetABSEND  .=  ''.$row['ABSENT'].'|';  
           }


So that you can be sure that your query is constructed correctly and that it is returning the expected results

empty the variable for each student.
Try this:
function ABSENt()
{
$IndexOrder = array(1,2,3,4,5,6,7);
 
  foreach($this->Getstudent as $student)
   {
$this->GetABSEND="";
      for ($j=0; $j<sizeof($IndexOrder);$j++)
     {
        $query = "SELECT ABSENT
                   FROM $ABSENTTABLE
                  WHERE STUDENT = \"$student\" AND INDEXORDER = $IndexOrder[$j]";
 
        $result = mysql_query($query);
       
         while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
           {
          $this->GetABSEND  .=  ''.$row['ABSENT'].'|';  
           }
     }
  }
  mysql_close($dbLink);
}
