    How to access array contents


    Hi,

    I want to know how to access the values of given array values using loop in php:

    Array
    (
    [0] => Array
    (
    [test1] => testval
    [test2] => testval2
    )

    i dont know what to loop and how to access it.

    Moreover if i am serializing the given array using php serialize function it is giving me output as N;. I dont know whats the problem with the serialize function of my code as i use

    serialize($this->['testing]);

    [testing] => Array
    (
    [0] => Array
    (
    [test1] => test.com
    [test2] => test2
    [test4] => test4

    )

    )

    Any help??

    I believe :

    foreach ($array as $k=>$v)
    {
    echo "Array element $k contains:<br>";
    foreach ($v as $k2=>$v2)
    echo "$k2 = $v2<br>";
    }

    jimmyg999's solution will work.

    Also, use print_r() often for troubleshooting. Using echo('<pre>'.print_r($array,1).'</pre>'); will make it easier to read.

    Please post your actual code and use [ CODE ] and [ PHP ] tags properly so we can see the formatting and coloring more easily.

    Jimmy's solution solves your first question about the access of nested multidimensional variables.

    Your second question starts with invalid code and doesn't make much sense.

    serialize($this->['testing]);
    If this is your exact line at error, one item missing is the second ' placed after the word 'testing'.

    But, as ManiacDan mentions, offer us more info such as these 3 things.
    1.) The code that builds your array, so way have in mind an idea of our own what it holds.
    1a.) Possibly a view of how the Array prints via NotionCommotion's: echo('<pre>'.print_r($array,1).'</pre>');
    2.) The exact line you are running which fails w/ an error.
    3.) The error.
