If foobar is empty then I want to remove the entire item from my array.
<?php

$a = array();
$a[]=array('id'=>1,'Name'=>'Abc','foobar'=>null);
$a[]=array('id'=>2,'Name'=>'Jkl','foobar'=>'Hello');
$a[]=array('id'=>3,'Name'=>'Qrs','foobar'=>'Test');
$a[]=array('id'=>4,'Name'=>'Xyz','foobar'=>'');

echo '<pre>';
print_r($a);
echo '</pre>';

?>
