how do i put an array in a variable?

Ok. How do I put the array itself into a variable?

I want to put this into a variable, so I can use it in a get_table_start function.

Code

$roster_player_name[$id]

I tried many things with no sucess.

Code

$name = "{$roster_player_name[$id]}";
$name = "$roster_player_name[$id]";
$name = $roster_player_name[$id];

Code

echo get_table_start("width='100%' style='height: 100%'",0,$name);

:(

You mean put an array element into a variable. You need to user debugging tricks…

Code

$name = $roster_player_name[$id];

That should have worked. Although there was no reason for it, you could have put the right hand side directly into the get_table_start function.

If it doesn't work, try a debug trick…

Code

$name = $roster_player_name[$id];
die($name."!".$id);

That will make it terminate the script after outputting what $name is and what $id is (with an ! inbetween to seperate them). Are they as they should be? If $id is, and $name isn't, then $roster_player_name[$id] can't be set right. Look in your code for where it is set… is there a bug?

Blah blah. You have to dig long and deep to get code working and fix bugs.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
