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>
