Hello,
I have a php function that spits out some HTML tags.

Could you help me write a regex that replaces all values of the width attribute by 300, and stores the old width in a variable.

Many thanks


<?php
$oldwidth="";
$string   = '<object width="400" height="325"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/b9JAHhqV6Ko&amprel=0&ampegm=0&ampshowinfo=0&ampfs=1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/b9JAHhqV6Ko&amprel=0&ampegm=0&ampshowinfo=0&ampfs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="325" allowFullScreen="true" wmode="transparent"></embed></object>';
?>

Perhaps you're looking for something like this?
$string   = '<object width="400" height="325"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/b9JAHhqV6Ko&amprel=0&ampegm=0&ampshowinfo=0&ampfs=1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/b9JAHhqV6Ko&amprel=0&ampegm=0&ampshowinfo=0&ampfs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="325" allowFullScreen="true" wmode="transparent"></embed></object>';
preg_match('/(?<=width=")(\d+)(?=")/', $string, $oldwidths);
$string = preg_replace('/(?<=width=")\d+(?=")/', '300', $string);

var_dump($oldwidths);
var_dump($string);
