Hello;

I have this function and it works

<?php
        $tab  = "<div class='articletitle'>";
          $tab .= "<a href='./$folder/$file?articleid=$articleid&parentid=$parentid&catid=$catid'><strong>$title$audioicon 
		   </strong></a></div>";
          $tab .= "<div class='mimage'>";
          $tab .= "<a href='./$folder/$file?articleid=$articleid&parentid=$parentid&catid=$catid'>
		   <img src='./images/mimage/$photo' border='0' alt='$altdescription' /></a><br/>";	  
          $tab .= "<span class='span_class'>$description1...  </span></div><hr class='hr95'>";
          return $tab;
		  
          }
          $tab = "";
 ?>

Open in new window


But i want change it to have one <div> with 3 raws(one for Title,one for image,and one for title description) as below,appreciate that let me know is it possible and how?
Because when i want apply 'float' i can.

    <div class="wrapper">
  <div class="row1">for title</div>
  <div class="row2">for image</div>
  <div class="row3">for small description</div>
</div>

This appears to be missing the function signature line, so there may be other things missing, too.  But that said, you can return any string variable you want from a PHP function, like this.

<?php // demo/temp_mosta.php

 */
error_reporting(E_ALL);

function mosta()
{
    // CREATE A RETURN STRING IN HEREDOC NOTATION
    $tab = <<<EOD
    <div class="wrapper">
      <div class="row1">for title</div>
      <div class="row2">for image</div>
      <div class="row3">for small description</div>
    </div>
EOD;

    return $tab;
}


// CALL THE FUNCTION
$new = mosta();

// SHOW THE WORK PRODUCT
echo '<pre>';
echo htmlentities($new);

Hi Ray;
Is it possible for you that have a look on this question/thanks:



This question is regarding the calling of function that you solve it above:
function mosta()
{
    // CREATE A RETURN STRING IN HEREDOC NOTATION
    $tab = <<<EOD
    <div class="wrapper">
      <div class="row1">for title</div>
      <div class="row2">for image</div>
      <div class="row3">for small description</div>
    </div>
EOD;

    return $tab;
}

Open in new window


I want call this function so arrange it  in 2 columns and 4 rows as:

block1      block2

block3      block4

block5      block6

block7      block8

each block is calling the function with new data,something like this below(it call 8 times the function but not arrange right) that don't arrange in div that the calling happen:
-function doArticle_image300_artandculture() is the mosta() function.
-The codes below is just for the things that is in my mind,and want to show what i want.

$result_artandculture = mysql_query($query_artandculture);

if ( $result_artandculture) {
	
	      $i = 1;
     for ( $i=1 ; $i<=4; $i++){
    $rw = @mysql_fetch_assoc( $result_artandculture);
    $new= doArticle_image300_artandculture( $rw['articleid'], $rw['title'], $rw['description1'], $rw['photofilename'], $rw['parentid'], $rw['catid'],$rw['mediastate'],$rw['altdescription']); 
	 echo "$new";
	 
	 if ( $rw = @mysql_fetch_assoc($result_artandculture ) )

 	 $new=doArticle_image300_artandculture( $rw['articleid'], $rw['title'], $rw['description1'], $rw['photofilename'],       $rw['parentid'], $rw['catid'],$rw['mediastate'],$rw['altdescription']);
		 
		 
		echo "$new";
	 
	 
     }
	
	}
