I'm a little confused by what ought to be relatively simple syntax...

I have an array...called $files

When I call:
print_r(array_values($files));
it returns...
Array
(
    [0] => stdClass Object
        (
            [path] => /10432949_10152690623541547_915229621125343103_n.jpg
            [bytes] => 86524
            [modified] => Tue, 03 Feb 2015 21:32:13 +0000
        )

    [1] => stdClass Object
        (
            [path] => /islogo.jpg
            [bytes] => 7612
            [modified] => Wed, 28 Jan 2015 03:22:16 +0000
        )

    [2] => stdClass Object
        (
            [path] => /sample2.mp3
            [bytes] => 908625
            [modified] => Fri, 20 Jun 2014 14:55:38 +0000
        )

    [3] => stdClass Object
        (
            [path] => /test_download_sample2.mp3
            [bytes] => 908625
            [modified] => Sat, 27 Sep 2014 03:08:54 +0000
        )
)

Open in new window


Now - I want to retrieve the first value, second value, etc...  But when I put

print_r($files[0]) - it yields nothing.

What am I doing wrong?  Shouldn't that return the first array object?

Thanks in advance!

Because you print the array values of files not the array it self! So to be able to print it as files[0], it will be something like this:
$files_ary = array_values($files);
print_r(files_ary[0]);
