Hi,

Is it possible in PHP to get both the data and the input name when posting a form?

example,

if i got a form
<input name="a_field" value="a value" />
<input name="b_field" value="b value" />

On the page the form points to I want to catch all $_POST vars to an array like
$fields['fieldname'][0] = 'a_field';
$fields['fieldvalue'][0] = 'a value';
.... and so on
I know how to add the values to an array, but if I don't know the field names, is it possible to get them?

as when u do
<pre>
<?php
echo print_r($_POST);
?>
</pre>

u get both the filename and the value.

Hope my question is clear, please tell me and I try explain harder

$i=0;
foreach($_POST as $k=>$y){
$fields['fieldname'][$i] = $k;
$fields['fieldvalue'][$i++] = $y;
}

Hope this helps
