I'd like to use an array.

The array would be declared like this...
$varArray(0 to 16, 2)



$varArray(x, 1) = $strGame
$varArray(x, 2) = $strSelection

Then I'd use a for loop to go through each and send each to the db. There's more to this, obviously, but is this possible with PHP?

Zero,
as far as using an array, the best way to use an array would be to populate a drop down list. radio buttons and drop down lists kind of work in the same manner.

you can give the end user many choices, but only one selection will be processed.

do not make it harder than you have to. using radio buttons will work fine, you'll just need 16 variables.

the code I posted will work for you. if you want to show the selection in a db instead of a 1 or 0, maybe use a drop down list instead. like this

&lt;tr&gt;
&lt;td&gt;02&lt;/td&gt;
&lt;td&gt;
&lt;?----start php

$01s = array("Packers","Bengals");

if (empty($01s[0])) {
echo '&lt;input type="text" name="01" class="textbox" value="' . $01. '" maxlength="255" /&gt;' . "\n";
}
else {
?>
&lt;select name="01" class="textbox"&gt;
&lt;option value=""&gt;-- please select --&lt;/option&gt;
&lt;?
// Print out position options
for ($i = 0; $i &lt; count($01s); $i++) {
echo '&lt;option value="' . $01s[$i] . '"';
if($01s[$i]==$01){echo " selected ";}
echo "&gt;" . $01s[$i] . "&lt;/option&gt; \n";
}
?>
&lt;/select&gt;
&lt;?
}
?&gt;
&lt;/td&gt;
&lt;/tr&gt;

lol, what u learned in school only scratches the surface of programming. I was lucky to have worked with the guy that hired me out of school. Dude was completely insane. totally bipolar, but man did he know vb6, vb.net, classic asp, IIS, sql. he gave me a book on coldfusion, a 40 hour week and told me to create some database driven order forms. I did it.

next was classic asp, which I wish I could've stuck with. safe, secure database driven websites with nothing but notepad. I was given a 40 work week to create some database driven order forms, and I completed that project and 1 other. after that i did a financial program in vb6 and then another in vb.net that was sold for 5 grand multiple times.

that was in my first 6 months of work. then came ektron and vb.net. i did that and was getting really good with vb.net for bout the next 9 months when i was laid off. i really think a senior programmer got a little nervous about how I was attacking all my projects and pulled the cord on my job to try and save his.

but a month after i got laid off i got this part time php gig. no experience in php, no training, just cut loose on live web forms, and service tickets.

just stick with it and you will get it. just remember, you may be editing as many as 3-4 files and several functions in each file every time you try and add something or change something.

this program will take some maintenance, which is why I am interested. I could always use another job reference, and would be willing to write some code for you.

if you decide to whip it yourself, cool, i wish you the best.
lol, little different than vb.net and using datagrids, which BTW, I may have some Ektron opportunities coming up.

you'll be fine. put the code i gave you in the file you sent me. that file you sent to me, that is what I would consider a "TEMPLATE" file.

the validation code would go in a class file.

Why is everything so freaking complicated in PHP?

in VB ... piece of cake!

Code:
'declare array
Public strMaster(0 To 4000, 3) As String

'increment index
x = x + 1

'fill array
strMaster(x, 1) = strGrame
strMaster(x, 2) = strSelection


'and to pull the data out
For i As Integer = 0 To x
     strSendGame = strMaster(i, 1)
     strSendSelection = strMaster(i, 2)
            'do work here to send each game number and selection to db
Next x



Now why can't I do that with PHP? From what I've seen of it, PHP is a very tool enriched language but how do you increment the darn index of the array dynamically?

It's so freaking frustrating! Everything I've learned with programming, doesn't work with PHP!! I can't even figure out how to increment the index of a flipping two dimensional array.

Another reason I like VB, the IDE can be used as a tool with intellisense. I'm not so lucky with PHP, even dreamweaver is no help, lol.


I did try the code you gave me and it didn't work. It was sending '0' or '1' and if it wasn't checked, it did do anything. Not sure how I screwed it up, but I must have somewhere along the lines.

If I have to make a 16 Week##.php files, I'm down with that. But I need one to work first in the scope I'm aiming for.

I thought once I had the link issue resolved it'd be a snap because all languages use arrays in a similar fashion. WRONG! lol

like this
for ($i = 0; $i &lt; count($01s); $i++) {
echo '&lt;option value="' . $01s[$i] . '"';
if($01s[$i]==$01){echo " selected ";}
echo "&gt;" . $01s[$i] . "&lt;/option&gt; \n";

ok, that is what a radio button will do. if it is checked, you will see a 1 in the database. if not a 0 will appear. then you need to add that validation function so the user has to make a selection. Next you can write a function to display the users picks on a web page. just copy and paste the code into another file to display the selection.

if you want to see the selection in the database, i would suggest using a drop down list, populate with an array and then recycle this code 15 times with different variables and different arrays.

here is two picks


&lt;tr&gt;
&lt;td &gt;Pick1&lt;/td&gt;
&lt;td&gt;
&lt;?

$01s = array("Packers","Bengals");

if (empty($01s[0])) {
echo '&lt;input type="text" name="01" class="textbox" value="' . $01. '" maxlength="255" /&gt;' . "\n";
}
else {
?>
&lt;select name="01" class="textbox"&gt;
&lt;option value=""&gt;-- please select --&lt;/option&gt;
&lt;?
// Print out position options
for ($i = 0; $i &lt; count($01s); $i++) {
echo '&lt;option value="' . $01s[$i] . '"';
if($01s[$i]==$01){echo " selected ";}
echo "&gt;" . $01s[$i] . "&lt;/option&gt; \n";
}
?>
&lt;/select&gt;
&lt;?
}
?&gt;
&lt;/td&gt;
&lt;/tr&gt;
&lt;tr&gt;
&lt;td &gt;Pick2&lt;/td&gt;
&lt;td&gt;
&lt;?

$02s = array("Vikings","Lions");

if (empty($02s[0])) {
echo '&lt;input type="text" name="02" class="textbox" value="' . $02. '" maxlength="255" /&gt;' . "\n";
}
else {
?>
&lt;select name="02" class="textbox"&gt;
&lt;option value=""&gt;-- please select --&lt;/option&gt;
&lt;?
// Print out position options
for ($i = 0; $i &lt; count($02s); $i++) {
echo '&lt;option value="' . $02s[$i] . '"';
if($02s[$i]==$02){echo " selected ";}
echo "&gt;" . $02s[$i] . "&lt;/option&gt; \n";
}
?>
&lt;/select&gt;
&lt;?
}
?&gt;
&lt;/td&gt;
&lt;/tr&gt;


like i wrote, if you want the actual selection text to show up in the database, use a dropdownlist.

a radio button will display a 1 or 0 in the database, not the text, so i think my code worked properly.

That is way over my head and doesn't look remotely close to what I posted (which makes sense cuz mine was in .NET), lol.

Isn't there a curly bracket missing in there? I see two open and only one close?

See the mess I've created? lol

If I make three selections, the three 'echo' at the bottom there should show those three selections as ...

01 - Steelers
02 - Dolphins
03 - Broncos


But for some sweet reason, the array's index is not incrementing.
