Using PHP Mobile Device Detection Script to Switch off Javascript

I have a mobile detection script in PHP that detects what type of browser the person is using to connect to the website which works fine.

On the site I have a Javascript Image Conveyor Belt which scrolls through images which I do not want to display if the browser is a mobile phone/smartphone, I can't see how to get the PHP to display/not display the Javascript.

Ideally I'd like to encapsulate the javascript within a PHP if statement to display it, but not sure how to do it.

How does your detection script work, is it function, if not can you convert it to a function? Otherwise can you show some code?

Lets you call your function mobiledetected() it will return true if it's a mobile, otherwise false.

You would use it like this:

if (! mobiledetected()) {
 echo '<script type="text/javascript">... etc your code</script>
}

Hi,

The PHP Code is not currently a function, but could be.

I have attached the PHP code and Javascript Code for reference.
<?php
 $mobile_browser = '0';
 
if(preg_match('/(up.browser|up.link|mmp|symbian|smartphone|midp|wap|phone)/i', strtolower($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']))) {
    $mobile_browser++;
}
 
if((strpos(strtolower($_SERVER['HTTP_ACCEPT']),'application/vnd.wap.xhtml+xml')>0) or ((isset($_SERVER['HTTP_X_WAP_PROFILE']) or isset($_SERVER['HTTP_PROFILE'])))) {
    $mobile_browser++;
}    
 
$mobile_ua = strtolower(substr($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'],0,4));
$mobile_agents = array(
