passing array as post variable?

Hi. I have a question I would appreciate some help with.

I need to pass a couple of arrays, together with some info in a form to a page. I initially thought I might be able to pass the array on in a hidden form field. But its not working right. The data I get in the array on the other side is wrong.

Does anyone know if this can be done? (passing an array as a post variable).

If not, do you have any suggestions as to how I can do it?

Thanks a lot

Joe

You could try serializing the array

posting an array

use the [] symbol in the name of the form field you are submitting like:

input type=text name=whatever[] value=a
input type=text name=whatever[] value=b
input type=text name=whatever[] value=c
input type=text name=whatever[] value=d

when you post, this will come in as

$whatever = array("a", "b", "c", "d");

and you can access them like:

$whatever[0]

which will yield you "a"

Great. Thanks for that tip. I got it working using serialization, but I'll keep this in mind as well.
