foreach ($this->items as $item) { the data is magically there but the de bug does not step off to the db read can some one please explain how this works

function initdata(){
<?php

          if ($curcat != $item->category) {
                  $curcatnum++;
                  $itemnum = 0;
                     $curcat = $item->category;
                     echo ('price_list['.$curcatnum.'] = new Array();'."\n");

Without seeing the actual code, it may be impossible to help, but I'll make a guess.  Since initdata() is a PHP function, it has its own variable scope.  Variable names inside the function are isolated from names outside the function.

You've only shown part of the code so it's impossible to see. Something is happening before your code gets here to set the scope of $this

@Ray - it looks like the initdata() is a Javascript function - it's just using PHP to populate a Javascript array

initdata() is a Javascript function
Good probability.  So much is missing from the question that it's hard to discern what the real issue might be!

sorry about that forgot yes its joomla 3 and yes there is some code missing this is the code that i am trying to figure out this would be the actual setup of the extraction of the db, this is the code that i cannot find, its not that i am holding any thing back intentionally i just cannot find the code were it sets up this array of data records, this is what i am trying to find,
 will step through the code now and see what i can come up with
