Php nested array - How to get a value out

Posted on 2009-07-07

I have a nested array in php:
[field_linkout] => Array
            [0] => Array
                    [nid] => 57
                    [view] => <a href="/content/about">About</a>

            [1] => Array
                    [nid] => 15
                    [view] => <a href="/content/learning" class="active">Learning</a>

            [2] => Array
                    [nid] => 55
                    [view] => <a href="/content/organising">Organising</a>



I need to display only the links in the [view] element.

This is how far I've got:

      foreach ($node->field_linkout as $linkoutarray ) {
            foreach ($linkoutarray as $linkdata => $link)
                print $link[view] . '<br/>';
    } //


But it is displaying the first value of both the [nid] and [view] elements. I just need the [view] value.

Any help would be really appriciated.
Thanks, Lk

your code is wrong, try this:
      foreach ($node->field_linkout as $linkoutarray ) {
         print $linkoutarray[view] . '<br/>';

little explanation:
This is array of array (2 levels). And your code was passing it like it was array of array of array (3 levels).
