Hi

I have some working code, thanks to some help from EE where a directory is scanned and the results placed in a table. However, what I cannot seem to do is if there are no results then display a message in the table outside the foreach loop. Can someone help with this. Thanks


<?php
									
    // WHAT IS IN THE STORAGE DIRECTORY
    $sub = 'destcerts' . '/' . $_SESSION['kt_idcode_usr'];

    // READ THE NAMES OF FILES IN THE SUB-DIRECTORY
    $fff = new DirectoryIterator($sub);
    $sss = array();

    foreach ($fff as $filedata)
    {
        // SKIP THE "DOT" FILES
        if ($filedata->isDot()) continue;

        // ACTIVATE THIS LINE TO RESTRICT IT TO PDF FILES ONLY
        if ($filedata->getExtension() != 'pdf') continue;

        // CREATE LINKS TO THESE FILES
        $nom = $filedata->getFilename();
        $value = substr ($nom, 0, 4);

        //$_SESSION['value'] = $value;


        if($_SESSION['kt_idcode_usr'] == $value) {

            $lnk
            = '<img src="destcerts/PDF_icon_100.png" style="margin-bottom: 15px; margin-top:15px;"><br /><a href="'
            . $sub
            . '/'
            . $nom
            . '" style="color:#0099FF; text-decoration:none; font-size:12px; font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;">'
            . $nom
            . '</a>'
            ;

        } 

        // COLLECT THE LINKS HERE
        $sss[] = $lnk;
    }

    // ACCUMULATE THE TABLE ROWS HERE
    $trs   = NULL;

    // COLLECT GROUPS OF FOUR
    while (!empty($sss))
    {
        $td1 = array_shift($sss) or NULL;
        $td2 = array_shift($sss) or NULL;
        $td3 = array_shift($sss) or NULL;
        $td4 = array_shift($sss) or NULL;

        // USE HEREDOC TO INSERT THESE INTO A TABLE ROW
        $tr  = <<<EOD
        <tr>
        <td align="center" width="20%" style="padding-bottom:20px !important;">$td1</td>
        <td align="center" width="20%" style="padding-bottom:20px !important;">$td2</td>
        <td align="center" width="20%" style="padding-bottom:20px !important;">$td3</td>
        <td align="center" width="20%" style="padding-bottom:20px !important;">$td4</td>
        </tr>
EOD;

        // APPEND THE TABLE ROW TO THE OTHER ROWS
        $trs .= $tr;
    }

    // USE HEREDOC TO INSERT THE TABLE ROWS INTO THE TABLE
    $tab = <<<EOD
    <table id="pdfDownload" width="94%" align="center" border="1" cellspacing="10" cellpadding="0" style="border:1px solid grey; padding-bottom: 10px; margin-bottom:20px;">
    <th style="text-align:center; padding: 10px !important; padding-bottom: 20px; border:1px solid black; background-color: #3399FF; color: white; font-size: 18px !important;" colspan="4">Destruction Certificates Download</th>

    <th></th>
    <th></th>
    <th></th>
    </tr>
    $trs

Something like this... Look for the word "data" in the code to see what we're doing here.

<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);

    // WHAT IS IN THE STORAGE DIRECTORY
    $sub = 'destcerts' . '/' . $_SESSION['kt_idcode_usr'];

    // READ THE NAMES OF FILES IN THE SUB-DIRECTORY
    $fff = new DirectoryIterator($sub);
    $sss = array();

    // SET AN INDICATOR OF WHETHER WE FOUND DATA
    $data_found = FALSE;
    foreach ($fff as $filedata)
    {
        // SKIP THE "DOT" FILES
        if ($filedata->isDot()) continue;

        // ACTIVATE THIS LINE TO RESTRICT IT TO PDF FILES ONLY
        if ($filedata->getExtension() != 'pdf') continue;

        // SET AN INDICATOR TO SHOW WE FOUND DATA
        $data_found = TRUE;
        
        // CREATE LINKS TO THESE FILES
        $nom = $filedata->getFilename();
        $value = substr ($nom, 0, 4);

        //$_SESSION['value'] = $value;


        if($_SESSION['kt_idcode_usr'] == $value) {

            $lnk
            = '<img src="destcerts/PDF_icon_100.png" style="margin-bottom: 15px; margin-top:15px;"><br /><a href="'
            . $sub
            . '/'
            . $nom
            . '" style="color:#0099FF; text-decoration:none; font-size:12px; font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;">'
            . $nom
            . '</a>'
            ;

        } 

        // COLLECT THE LINKS HERE
        $sss[] = $lnk;
    }

    // DID WE FIND ANY DATA
    if ($data_found === FALSE)
    {
        // NO DATA
        echo "NO DATA";
        die();
    }
    // ACCUMULATE THE TABLE ROWS HERE
    $trs   = NULL;

        $td1 = array_shift($sss) or NULL;
        $td2 = array_shift($sss) or NULL;
        $td3 = array_shift($sss) or NULL;
        $td4 = array_shift($sss) or NULL;

        // USE HEREDOC TO INSERT THESE INTO A TABLE ROW
        $tr  = <<<EOD
        <tr>
        <td align="center" width="20%" style="padding-bottom:20px !important;">$td1</td>

@Ray

Line 12 seems to be breaking my layout. If I comment that line out, my divs display as usual.  If I leave that line in  and comment lines 49-55 in your code my divs display as usual. I copied your code exactly. Not sure whats happening here. Thanks

@Ray

If I code on it's own page it works fine. Guess there must be something on my main page that throws the layout out of sync when I use your code. Anyway,accept the points because your code does exactly what it says on the tin :-) many thanks
