Loop Insert from an array?

Thread began 8/30/2010 12:00 pm by Steve | Last modified 9/01/2010 1:16 pm by Steve | 1728 views | 9 replies


Harder than I thought...


I can't seem to get the array posted to the DA Insert Behaviour.

I can print_r the array and see the results present but in the js alert I set in the behaviour the array never shows up.

<?php require_once("../../Connections/emailList.php"); ?>
<?php require_once("../../WA_DataAssist/WA_AppBuilder_PHP.php"); ?>

// WA Application Builder Insert
if (isset($_POST["InsertMe"])) // Trigger

echo "<script language=\"JavaScript\">\n";
echo "alert('";
echo '<pre>';
echo '</pre>';
echo "we made it this far');\n";
echo "</script>";

// loop to allow array of inserts
for($i = 0; $i < sizeof($matches[0]); $i++) {

$WA_connection = $emailList;
$WA_table = "phplist_user_user";
$WA_sessionName = "phplist_user_user_id";
$WA_redirectURL = "";
$WA_keepQueryString = false;
$WA_indexField = "id";
$WA_fieldNamesStr = "email|confirmed|uniqid|htmlemail|subscribepage";
$WA_fieldValuesStr = "$matches[0]" . "|" . "1" . "|" . md5(uniqid(mt_rand())) . "|" . "1" . "|" . "4";
$WA_columnTypesStr = "',none,''|none,none,NULL|',none,''|none,none,NULL|none,none,NULL";
$WA_fieldNames = explode("|", $WA_fieldNamesStr);
$WA_fieldValues = explode("|", $WA_fieldValuesStr);
$WA_columns = explode("|", $WA_columnTypesStr);
$WA_connectionDB = $database_emailList;
mysql_select_db($WA_connectionDB, $WA_connection);
if (!session_id()) session_start();
$insertParamsObj = WA_AB_generateInsertParams($WA_fieldNames, $WA_columns, $WA_fieldValues, -1);
$WA_Sql = "INSERT INTO `" . $WA_table . "` (" . $insertParamsObj->WA_tableValues . ") VALUES (" . $insertParamsObj->WA_dbValues . ")";
$MM_editCmd = mysql_query($WA_Sql, $WA_connection) or die(mysql_error());
$_SESSION[$WA_sessionName] = mysql_insert_id();
if ($WA_redirectURL != "") {
if ($WA_keepQueryString && $WA_redirectURL != "" && isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] !== "" && sizeof($_POST) > 0) {
$WA_redirectURL .= ((strpos($WA_redirectURL, '?') === false)?"?":"&").$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"];
header("Location: ".$WA_redirectURL);

Please enter full URL of the page to parse (including http://):<br />

or enter text directly into textarea below:<br />

<form id="formUser" name="formUser" method="post" action="">
$the_url = isset($_REQUEST['url']) ? htmlspecialchars($_REQUEST['url']) : '';

if (isset($_REQUEST['url']) && !empty($_REQUEST['url'])) {
// fetch data from specified url
$text = file_get_contents($_REQUEST['url']);
elseif (isset($_REQUEST['text']) && !empty($_REQUEST['text'])) {
// get text from text area
$text = $_REQUEST['text'];

// parse emails
if (!empty($text)) {
$res = preg_match_all("/[a-z0-9]+([_\\.-][a-z0-9]+)*@([a-z0-9]+([\.-][a-z0-9]+)*)+\\.[a-z]{2,}/i",$text,$matches);

if ($res) {
// loop through array only taking the first one of any duplicates with the array_unique function
foreach(array_unique($matches[0]) as $email) {
echo $email . "<br />";
else {
echo "No emails found.";

<label for="fldEmail"></label>
Email: **
<input name="fldEmail" type="text" id="fldEmail" size="45" />
<input type="submit" name="InsertMe" id="InsertMe" value="Submit" />

The page allows you to specify some page that has email addresses in it then using preg_match_all makes an array of the results. I now need to pass that in the insert loop to the DB.

I'm down to thinking I need pass the array in a $_POST from a hidden field but tests have not worked with that method so I am at a loss.

Any ideas?
