I would like to know how to avoid the OUTPUT of var_dump($abc); from showing in the output screen and instead use it to feed a variable. Well, I am trying to put the output of
<form><select name="study_Class"><option value="word1 (space) word2">word1 word2</option></form> into php program as an array as shown below (as its multiple choices) and want to use the words seperated by space as in the <value> attribute. But don't want the output of var_dump($); showing in the screen. Is there a way? (Below is my code)
<form action="abc.php" method="post"> <select name="study_class" multiple> <option value="Class 1">CLASS 1</option> <option value="Class 2">CLASS 2</option> <option value="Class 3">CLASS 1</option> <option value="Class 4">CLASS 2</option> </select> </form> abc.php <?php #get data $study_class=implode(', ', $_POST['study_class']); var_dump($study_class); ?> <html> . . <P> Study Classes Chosen are: <?php echo $study_class; ?></P> . </html>
So on top of the OUTPUT screen first the
string(31) Class 1, Class 2
Then my echo response comes:
Study Classes Chosen are: Class 1, Class2
HOW to avoid the string.....
Also I will be feeding the $study_class as output in mail.
