I have a soap call which I'm currently successfully making in our system, however I'm only able to query one short_name at a time.
This is the function that calls it.

  public function getCalendarSearch($values)
    {
        $request = new stdClass();
        $request->Channels->DistributionChannel = array("id"=>$this->auth->channelid, "key" => $this->auth->channelkey);
        $request->Providers =  $values["txtShortName"]; //checked short name list
        $request->Query->IndustryCategory = $values["selIndustryCategory"];
        $request->Query->Criteria = array("start_date"=>$values["txtStartDate"], "days"=>$values["txtDays"]);
        //Cache Mode
        if ($values["rdoAuto"] == "on") //Auto
            $request->Query = array("cache"=>"Auto");
            
        if ($values["rdoOn"] == "on") //On
            $request->Query = array("cache"=>"On");
            
        if ($values["rdoOff"] == "on") //Off
            $request->Query = array("cache"=>"Off");
            
        //Show Product Info in results
        if ($values["chkShowProduct"] == "on")
            $request->Response = array("product_calendar"=>true);
        else
            $request->Response = array("product_calendar"=>false);
            
        try {
            echo "<pre>".print_r($request, true)."</pre>";
            $res = $this->v3Client->CalendarSearch($request);
            echo "<pre>".print_r($res, true)."</pre>";
            if($res->Status->Success) {
                return $res->Channels->Channel->Providers->Provider;
            }
            
        } catch (SoapFault $exception) {
            echo $exception;
        }
        
        return null;
    }

The problem however is that we are meant to be able to make calls with the following xml
  <Providers>
    <Provider short_name="Test_ToothnNailLodge" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="Black_Jack_Get-A-Way" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="escapegoat_adventures" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="gekko_safari" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="Dereks" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="Trafalger_House" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="ChateauElan" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="Hunter_Resort" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="segenhoe_hotel" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="Tea_Gardens" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="BlackJackGetAWay" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
  </Providers>

currently to call it we use something like this

$array = array('Provider' => array('short_name' => 'Naimanya_Cottage'));

Which works well, but we need more than one to be queried at one time. If we have more than one short_name called at the one time, then it would simply reassign the variable.

Does anyone have a workaround for this.

so that we can have it make just one call with multiple Provider-> short_name
presently we are looping through about 10 of these calls which isn't practical really. One call would be much better.

thanks for any help

I am not really clear what you want here, but is the following of any assistance? For my own convenience I have loaded the XML as a string to generate an XML object which I process one entry at a time and store all the outputs in a result array keyed by the short name

<?php

/*----- Set up test data ----- */

$data = '<?xml version="1.0" ?>
  <Providers>
    <Provider short_name="Test_ToothnNailLodge" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="Black_Jack_Get-A-Way" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="escapegoat_adventures" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="gekko_safari" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="Dereks" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="Trafalger_House" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="ChateauElan" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="Hunter_Resort" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="segenhoe_hotel" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="Tea_Gardens" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
    <Provider short_name="BlackJackGetAWay" xmlns="http://www.v3leisure.com/Schemas/CABS/1.0/CABS_Common.xsd" />
  </Providers>
';


$xml = simplexml_load_string( $data );

$result = array();

/* ----- End of test data set up ----- */





foreach( $xml as $aProvider ) {

     $att = $aProvider->attributes();

     // do SOAP call with $att['short_name'];
     
     $result [$att['short_name'] ] = .... result from SOAP call
}
