Using Implode in the Email Form

Greetings, I had a problem with this issue earlier.

showthread.php?t=16194&highlight=implode

I have attempted to follow Jason's instructions (which worked before) but this time it is still not generating anything in the final e-mail to the recipient?

<?php echo((isset($_POST["Appointment_Request_group_Best_Approximate_Time[]"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["Appointment_Request_group_Best_Approximate_Time[]"]):"") ?>

In the CSS form builder it adds the [] at the end, is this maybe what is wrong?

Here is the code from the form...

<label for="Appointment_request_group_Best_Approximate_Time" class="sublabel" >Best Approximate Time?:<span class="requiredIndicator">&nbsp;*</span></label>
<div class="errorGroup">
<div class="fieldPair">
<div class="fieldGroup"> <span id="Appointment_request_group_Best_Approximate_Time_Spry">
<select class="formListfield_Medium" name="Appointment_request_group_Best_Approximate_Time[]" id="Appointment_request_group_Best_Approximate_Time" tabindex="5" multiple="multiple" onblur="hideServerError('Appointment_request_group_Best_Approximate_Time_ServerError');">

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Martin

yes, in the echo, you need to remove the "[]", they are only needed in the form elements name, and should be removed from the echo.

Just looking at the code, I have no idea why the separation in the word time is occurring. It does not appear in the code.

Ok, I have removed the [] and tried it again. Still no success in generating multiple times in the final email ...

<?php echo((isset($_POST["Appointment_Request_group_Best_Approximate_Time"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["Appointment_Request_group_Best_Approximate_Time"]):"") ?>

Do I have to remove the [] in the form as well?

Thanks again!

the problem is case sensitivity.


the form element name is "Appointment_request_group_Best_Approximate_Time[]"

php:
<select class="formListfield_Medium" name="Appointment_request_group_Best_Approximate_Time[]" id="Appointment_request_group_Best_Approximate_Time" tabindex="5" multiple="multiple" onblur="hideServerError('Appointment_request_group_Best_Approximate_Time_ServerError');">





but in the echo, you are capitalizing the "r" in "request, so it becomes "Appointment_Request_group_Best_Approximate_Time". the code you have is:

php:
<?php echo((isset($_POST["Appointment_Request_group_Best_Approximate_Time"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["Appointment_Request_group_Best_Approximate_Time"]):""?>




but it needs to use a lower case "r" for request:

php:
<?php echo((isset($_POST["Appointment_request_group_Best_Approximate_Time"]))?implode(", ",$_POST["Appointment_request_group_Best_Approximate_Time"]):""?>




PHP is case sensitive.
