Hi everyone. I have this problem, my for each output is incorrect.
This is my form, I have a dynamic table. It think the problem is not here, but for the sake of more clear explanations.

f02560409ffa7053e6601d38d966fc3b

I am passing the values of that table to another page, I am POSTing it correctlt I guess because when I vard_dump() it, the array shows. and here is the output of vardump:

array(4) { ["txt"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(5) "item1" } ["qty"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(1) "2" } ["txtbox"]=> array(4) { [0]=> string(5) "item2" [1]=> string(1) "3" [2]=> string(5) "item3" [3]=> string(1) "4" } ["submit"]=> string(6) "Submit" }

But I don't know why my for each can't process it all. Here's my code for outputting them.

$chkbox = $_POST['chk'];
$txtbox = $_POST['txt'];
$qtys = $_POST['qty'];

foreach($txtbox as $a => $b)
  echo "$txtbox[$a]  -  $qtys[$a] <br />";

This code only outputs: **item1 - 2 **
which is the first row only.
How can I output all the data? Thanks in advance.

Ok, change your javascript to:

element1.name="chk[]";
element2.name="txt[]";
element3.name="qty[]";

that will generate this structure:

Array
(
    [chk] => Array
        (
            [0] => on
            [1] => on
            [2] => on
        )

    [txt] => Array
        (
            [0] => item 1
            [1] => item 2
            [2] => …

Hi, can you show the form?

Looking at the array output, it seems most of the values are under the index key txtbox while only the first is under txt which is the one you're trying to loop:

array(4)
{
    ["txt"]=> array(1)
    {
        [0]=> string(5) "item1"
    }

    ["qty"]=> array(1)
    {
        [0]=> string(1) "2"
    }

    ["txtbox"]=> array(4)
    {
        [0]=> string(5) "item2"
        [1]=> string(1) "3"
        [2]=> string(5) "item3"
        [3]=> string(1) "4"
    }

    ["submit"]=> string(6) "Submit"
}

Thank you for giving time to my post. Here is my form.

Ok, change your javascript to:

element1.name="chk[]";
element2.name="txt[]";
element3.name="qty[]";

that will generate this structure:

Array
(
    [chk] => Array
        (
            [0] => on
            [1] => on
            [2] => on
        )

    [txt] => Array
        (
            [0] => item 1
            [1] => item 2
            [2] => item 3
        )

    [qty] => Array
        (
            [0] => 17
            [1] => 34
            [2] => 23
        )

    [submit] => Submit
)

And it should work fine.
