Hi all,

I'm still learning PHP and am having some trouble creating an array that I can add the info to a PHP Chart.

Here is my call to the database.  

$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM exercising_table WHERE uname = '$username' ");

Open in new window


Field names:

uname
exercise_id (primary key)
exercise_duration (int in minutes)
exercise_timestamp

and I need to output the array in this format:

 
          ['24/01/12',  25],
          ['25/01/12',  26],
          ['28/01/12',  27],
          ['24/02/12',  25],
          ['15/03/12',  26],
          ['24/04/12',  27],
          ['21/06/12',  11]
        

Open in new window


The first column is the date (to be taken from exercise_timestamp) and the second column is the exercise time (to be taken from exercise_duration)

Could anyone assist me with this?

Thank you so much.
