dynamic variable name

I want my variable name to be dynamic variable. See my code below...

$media_brand_listed . $row_rs_ocg_brands2['brand_name'] = "Yes";

Open in new window


i.e. Say $row_rs_ocg_brands2['brand_name'] equals HP I want the variable name to be...

$media_brand_listedHP = "Yes";

What I have done is wrong. How should I do it?

You can use variable variables like this

$var  = 'media_brand_listed' . $row_rs_ocg_brands2['brand_name'] ;

$$var = 'Yes';

The $$ is a variable variable.

Now you can call $media_brand_listedHP and get the result 'Yes'

I agree with above.
you could do it in a single line:
${media_brand_listed' . $row_rs_ocg_brands2['brand_name'] } = 'Yes';
