Looping Through 2D Array

The below is my code.

What I need to do is loop though each value of the array, and run a test against that value of the array, for example if ($checked[0][0] == check) then do something... my problem is in how to handle the loop.

1. I need to step through a 2D array.. so the values are like $checked[0][0] through $checked[9][9] I'm not sure a for each will do this...  

2. Secondly as I go through each loop I need to make sure the cell of the array that I am testing is increasing as I go up... so the first time through  I am testing $checked[0][0] the second $checked[0][1], ect until 9,9

3. I will sometimes be changing the value of the current array cell that I am testing for example if $checked[0][0] == check and $checked[0][1] == checked { $checked[0][0] = unchecked } but I need to store all the changes and not pass them to the revised grid until after all the current cells have been tested.

Please help...
<?

if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {

  // $_POST['cb'] contains the array with selected checkboxes.

  $checked = $_POST['cb'];

  	foreach ($checked as $loop) {if ($checked[0][0] == check) {

  		echo "test";

  		}}

  echo "<pre>";

  print_r($checked);

  echo "</pre>";

}

?>

<form method='post'>

<?

 

for ($y = 0; $y < 9; $y++) {

  for ($x = 0; $x < 9; $x++) {

    echo "<input type='checkbox' name='cb[" . $y . "][" . $x. "]' value='check' ";

    if (isset($checked[$y][$x])) {

      echo "checked ";

    }

    echo "/>\n";

  }

  echo "<br />";

}

echo "<input type='submit' action='".$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']."' name='submit'>\n";

?>

 

<input type="submit" name="submit" />

</form>

Hi,

Try this.

<?

$max_rows = 9;

$max_cols = 9;
 
 

if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {

  // $_POST['cb'] contains the array with selected checkboxes.

  $checked = $_POST['cb'];

	for ($y = 0; $y < $max_rows; $y++) {

		  for ($x = 0; $x < $max_cols; $x++) {

				

				// you code for modification here

				echo ($y+1).",".($x+1)." is ";

				echo ($checked[$y][$x] === 'check')?"checked<br>":"unchecked<br>";

				

				}

		  }

	}
 

?>

<form method='post'>

<?

 

for ($y = 0; $y < $max_rows; $y++) {

  for ($x = 0; $x < $max_cols; $x++) {

    echo "<input type='checkbox' name='cb[" . $y . "][" . $x. "]' value='check' ";

    if (isset($checked[$y][$x])) {

      echo "checked ";

    }

    echo "/>\n";

  }

  echo "<br />";

}

?>

 

<input type="submit" name="submit" />

</form>
