How do I send in a multi-line request in nuSoap

We have a web-service that we will use for accepting orders from our customer. An extranet.
The service expects a ><SOAP-ENV:Body> as
<InsertOrder>
<order>
<CustomerCode>14593</CustomerCode>
<OrderLines>
<OrderLine>
<OrderedQuantity>3000</OrderedQuantity>
<ProductCode>141707</ProductCode>
</OrderLine>
</OrderLines>
</order>
</InsertOrder>

This I can do with a structure like

$nyorder = array('CustomerCode' => '14593',
                        'OrderLines' => array
                              ('OrderLine' => array
                                    ('ProductCode'=> '141707','OrderedQuantity' => '3000')
                              )
                        );
and

$result = $proxy->InsertOrder(array('order' => $nyorder));

Problem is I need tobe able to send in multiple <OrderLine> as one request.
But I can not figure out how to create this parameter as I can't create a normal associative array with multiple 'OrderLine' => array(.....
as they will all (of course) have the same key and I will only see the last one I create.

Or maybe I'm going at it from a complete wrong angle (SOAP newbie)

I hope any of this makes sense and I also hope the solution is obvious once I see it. (It usually is)

This is a XML I would need to create from an array.

 

<InsertOrder>

<order>

<CustomerCode>14593</CustomerCode>

<OrderLines>

<OrderLine>

<OrderedQuantity>3000</OrderedQuantity>

<ProductCode>141707</ProductCode>

</OrderLine>

<OrderLine>

<OrderedQuantity>1000</OrderedQuantity>

<ProductCode>341432</ProductCode>

</OrderLine>

</OrderLines>

</order>

</InsertOrder>

Wrap an extra array around your OrderLine items:
$nyorder = array(

  'CustomerCode' => '14593', 

  'OrderLines' => array(

    array('OrderLine' => array('ProductCode'=> '141707','OrderedQuantity' => '3000')),

    array('OrderLine' => array('ProductCode'=> '341432','OrderedQuantity' => '1000'))

  )

);

No, I have tried that and it does not work as the second array 'OrderLine' will have the same key ('OrderLine') as the first and therefore replace it.
If you do a print_r($nyorder) you will see that there is only one OrderLine

No, then you did something wrong, because that does not happen:
$nyorder = array(

  'CustomerCode' => '14593', 

  'OrderLines' => array(

    array('OrderLine' => array('ProductCode'=> '141707','OrderedQuantity' => '3000')),

    array('OrderLine' => array('ProductCode'=> '341432','OrderedQuantity' => '1000'))

  )

);

print '<pre>';

print_r($nyorder);

print '</pre>';
 

# result:

Array

(

    [CustomerCode] => 14593

    [OrderLines] => Array

        (

            [0] => Array

                (

                    [OrderLine] => Array

                        (

                            [ProductCode] => 141707

                            [OrderedQuantity] => 3000

                        )
 

                )
 

            [1] => Array

                (

                    [OrderLine] => Array

                        (

                            [ProductCode] => 341432

                            [OrderedQuantity] => 1000

                        )
 

                )
 

        )
 

)

I tried that solution also but nuSoap chokes on it when it tries to serialize it to an XML. It can not convert it to a valid XML.

Unfortunately I have the code at my workplace so I can not show you the error msg from nuSoap. If there is any way to get nuSoap to accept this type of array my problem would be solved

Try this also, it is slightly different:
$nyorder = array(

  'CustomerCode' => '14593', 

  'OrderLines' => array('OrderLine' => array(

     array('ProductCode'=> '141707','OrderedQuantity' => '3000'),

     array('ProductCode'=> '341432','OrderedQuantity' => '1000'))

  )

);
