Im trying to build by own binder for binding to mysql (long story.....)

So I want to pass the data via an array:-
    $arr = array('sqlCode'=>"INSERT INTO CountryLanguage (`code`,`language`,`official`,`percent`) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?)",
        'parameter'=>array('field'=>'code', 'type'=>'s', 'value'=>'DEU', 'post'=>'txtCode' ),
        'parameter'=>array('field'=>'language', 'type'=>'s', 'value'=>'Bavarian', 'post'=>'txtLanguage' ),
        'parameter'=>array('field'=>'official', 'type'=>'s', 'value'=>'F', 'post'=>'txtOfficial' ),
        'parameter'=>array('field'=>'percent', 'type'=>'d', 'value'=>'11.2', 'post'=>'txtPercent' ));

Open in new window


But when I look at the array only the last element of parameter is stored:-


Array
(
    [sqlCode] => INSERT INTO CountryLanguage (`code`,`language`,`official`,`percent`) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?)
    [parameter] => Array
        (
            [field] => percent
            [type] => d
            [value] => 11.2
            [post] => txtPercent
        )

)

What I want to be able to do is list all the parameters, like:-
    foreach ($arr['parameter'] as $value) {
        echo $value['field'];
    }

Open in new window


I understand that the each parameter is overwriting its previous, but would like to know how I can get around this, so I can this working.

Thank you

You have used the same key for the last few elements of the array. In this case, the values will overlap each other, therefore only the last value set is stored.
Therefore you should use different names, such as parameter1, parameter2, etc.

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask me.

Is there anyway to call them the same?

What I want to do is list the child array elements inside the elements with the
    foreach ($arr['parameter'] as $value) {
        echo $value['field'];
    }

Perhaps try this:

$arr=array('sqlCode'=>"INSERT INTO CountryLanguage (`code`,`language`,`official`,`percent`) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?)");
$p1=array('field'=>'code', 'type'=>'s', 'value'=>'DEU', 'post'=>'txtCode' );
$p2=array('field'=>'language', 'type'=>'s', 'value'=>'Bavarian', 'post'=>'txtLanguage' );
$p3=array('field'=>'official', 'type'=>'s', 'value'=>'F', 'post'=>'txtOfficial' );
$p4=array('field'=>'percent', 'type'=>'d', 'value'=>'11.2', 'post'=>'txtPercent' );
$arr['parameters']=array($p1,$p2,$p3,$p4);

//code to list the array

foreach ($arr['parameters'] as $value) {
        echo $value['field']."\n";
        echo $value['type']."\n";
        echo $value['value']."\n";
        echo $value['post']."\n";
}

//My sample output

code
s
DEU
txtCode
language
s
Bavarian
txtLanguage
official
s
F
txtOfficial
percent
d
11.2
txtPercent


I hope this is helpful.
BTW it is hard to maintain the code if you make an array that way. Try separate into a few lines.

To make it simpler read this:

$arr=array('sqlCode'=>"INSERT INTO CountryLanguage (`code`,`language`,`official`,`percent`) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?)");
$p1=array('field'=>'code', 'type'=>'s', 'value'=>'DEU', 'post'=>'txtCode' );
$p2=array('field'=>'language', 'type'=>'s', 'value'=>'Bavarian', 'post'=>'txtLanguage' );
$p3=array('field'=>'official', 'type'=>'s', 'value'=>'F', 'post'=>'txtOfficial' );
$p4=array('field'=>'percent', 'type'=>'d', 'value'=>'11.2', 'post'=>'txtPercent' );
$arr['parameters']=array($p1,$p2,$p3,$p4);

Open in new window


Then you can use your foreach() on the array. Hooray!
