Hey there...Well I am using checkboxes to post the multi-dim array; but the thing is When I retrieve & explode it directly ,It shows an error

Warning: explode() expects parameter 2 to be string, array given in C:\ms4w\Apache\htdocs\test24.php on line 12 NULL

So If I do use 'for loop' to take one array at a time from the clicked checkboxes & then explode; It works.. but thats the problem, I dont want a single dimension arrays as the output.. I want the output to be the multi dimensional array format; the same way how I assigned them to the checkboxes

I was hoping sumone might checkout the code below & letme know How can I explode & still retain the multidimensional array?!!




      if(isset($_REQUEST['submit']))//---- form is submitted -----

      $tab = $_REQUEST['tab'];

var_dump ($tab);
      $extent = explode("::",$tab);      //Direct Explode

var_dump ($extent);


    $extent = explode("::",$tab[$i]);  //Single arrays
      //echo '<br>'.$tab[$i]." is checked.";

var_dump ($extent);





      <form method="POST" name="myform2" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">
      <?php $table = array(
      array(2,'YZX', 19.87,84.78,12.59,76.45),
      array(4,'YXZ' ,12.75,77.37,08.18,74.86),
      array(5,'ZYX' ,32.46,76.93,29.53,73.87),

      <? for($i=0;$i<count($table);$i++){?>
      <br><input name="tab[]" type="checkbox" value="<?=$table[$i][0]?>::<?=$table[$i][1]?>::<?=$table[$i][2]?>::<?=$table[$i][3]?>::<?=$table[$i][4]?>::<?=$table[$i][5]?>">
      Id : <?=$table[$i][0]?>, Name : <?=$table[$i][1]?>
      <? } ?>
      <br><br><input name="submit" value="submit" type="submit">
