php insert mysql loop - ajax error handerling

I have a ajax call which scans a directory and inserts image links into a database.
The problem I have is... how to I manage the loop and different errors.... For instance, if the first images adds ok to the db and the second doesn't.. Currently I will get a fail sent back to my ajax js.

I have set up a unique on the file name field in the mysql db. So some images may add ok, others will get a duplicate 1062 error.

I need to report back to the user that 6 images added ok. but images 1.jpg, 7.jpg 27.jpg didnt add.

I hope that makes sence....

Heres my PHP so far:

function scanSlideDirectory()
{
	$slidesGroupID		= $_POST['slidesGroupID'];

	$result3 = mysql_query("
	SELECT slidesGroupDirectory
	FROM   slidesGroups
	WHERE slidesGroupID = $slidesGroupID")
	or die("SELECT Error: ".mysql_error()); 
	
	$row3 = mysql_fetch_array($result3);

	$slidesGroupDirectory = str_replace('/','\\',$row3['slidesGroupDirectory']);
	
	$exclude_list = array(".", "..", ".DS_Store", "Thumbs.db");
		
	$slidesImageDir = $_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"]."\\webapp\\" . $slidesGroupDirectory;
	$imagesDirArray = array_diff(scandir($slidesImageDir), $exclude_list);
		
	//echo "slidesImageDir: " . $slidesImageDir . "<br><br><br>";
	//print_r ($imagesDirArray);
	
	$i=0;
	foreach ($imagesDirArray as $key => $value) {
		$key = $i;
		$result=mysql_query("INSERT INTO slides (slidesGroupID, slideNumber, slideLocation)".
		"VALUES ('$slidesGroupID', '$key', '$value')");

		if ($result) {
			$i++;
		}
	}	


//handle your query.
	if ($result == '') {
		 $ajaxResponse['status'] = "success";
		 $ajaxResponse['inserted'] = $i;
	} else {
		 $ajaxResponse['status'] = "failure";
		 $ajaxResponse['message'] = "There was a problem: " . mysql_errno() . ": " . mysql_error();
	}

	echo json_encode($ajaxResponse);	
}

and my js

function scanDirectory(slidesGroupID) {
    $.blockUI({ message: 'Scanning slide group: ' + slidesGroupID + '<br>Please Wait...' }); 

	$.ajax({
		type:"POST",
		dataType : 'json',
		url: "library/process_slides.php",
		data:'slidesGroupID=' + slidesGroupID + '&action=scanSlideDirectory',
		cache: false,
	
		success:function(data) {
			if (data.status == "success") {
				$.unblockUI();
				alert("Horray! " + data.inserted + " slides have been added.");
			} else {
				$.unblockUI();
				alert("Oops. " + data.message);
			}
		}
	})
};

I would...

1. Capture the failed filenames and their errors in a separate array:

$failedImages = array(); // <=============== Add this line
$i=0;
	foreach ($imagesDirArray as $key => $value) {
		$key = $i;
		$result=mysql_query("INSERT INTO slides (slidesGroupID, slideNumber, slideLocation)".
		"VALUES ('$slidesGroupID', '$key', '$value')");

		if ($result) {
			$i++;
		}
                // ======= And add the below lines ========
                else
                {
                   $failedImages[$value] = mysql_errno() . ": " . mysql_error();
                }
	}

Open in new window


2. Check the number of failed images to determine success or not and use the array to show the errors:
if (count($failedImages) == 0) {  // <=============== Update this line
		 $ajaxResponse['status'] = "success";
		 $ajaxResponse['inserted'] = $i;
	} else {
		 $ajaxResponse['status'] = "failure";
                 // ======== And add/update the below lines ========
		 $ajaxResponse['message'] = "There was at least one problem: ";
                 foreach($failedImages as $failedImage => $error)
                 {
                                  $ajaxResponse['message'] .= "{$failedImage} failed ({$error})<br />\n";
                 }
                 // $ajaxResponse['failedImages'] = $failedImages;
	}

3. Profit!
