I just want to check a 3 digit number (integer) starts with a 10, the last digit can be any number.

So something like 10*

Try this:

if (preg_match('/10\d/'), $digitNumber){
  echo 'true';
}else{
  echo 'false';
}

Cheers

Thanks, but I am getting an error on if(preg_match('/10\d/'), $id){

here is my code.
thanks

$obj = simplexml_load_file('test.xml');

// ACTIVATE THIS TO VISUALIZE THE OBJECT
// var_dump($obj);

// IF WE HAVE A GET ARGUMENT
if (!empty($_GET["id"]))
{
    // USE ONLY NUMBERS
    $id = preg_replace('#[^0-9]#', NULL, $_GET["id"]);

    // ITERATE OVER THE POPUP OBJECTS
    foreach ($obj->popup as $popup)
    {
        // FIND THE MATCHING ID(S)
        if ($popup->id == $id)
        {
                  //$id = $id->id;
                  $id = (int)$popup->id;
            $title = (string)$popup->title;
            $img_loc = (string)$popup->img_loc;
            $client = (string)$popup->client;
            $involvement = (string)$popup->involvement;
           // echo PHP_EOL . $title . ' ' . $client;
      
            
if (preg_match('/10\d/'), $id){
  echo 'true';
}else{
  echo 'false';
}

if (is_int($number) && $number >= 100 && $number < 110) {

   // do stuff

}
