Looping insert of multiple rows

I have a form with jQuery function, allowing the user to add as many rows to the form/table as they'd like. Each added row has identical fields, obviously. I'd like to use this mySQLi INSERT behavior to loop through each of the user-added rows, and store each row. Any examples out there of how I can do this?

I don't have any examples. It is something I could help with in a premier support ticket.

I think if you name your fields with brackets like: name="field1[]" then it will submit them as an array. Then you can manually wrap your insert statement with a loop around that array to do the multiple inserts.

Looping

Thanks Ray. Yeah, the fields in question already have IDs with the [] brackets because we're looping through the fields to assemble an HTML email that gets sent to the client. That part works great. I effectively now need to do the same thing. It's the context of how to write that in the mySQLi INSERT code that I'm unsure of. If you can throw together a few lines of example on how to setup a look with your behavior code, I can try to hack it together to do what I need. I *feel* like it'd be a real quick answer, and hard to justify the $99 for this one! Maybe I'm wrong though...

Just wrap a for loop around your insert statement like:

<?php
for ($x=0; $x<sizeof($_POST['loopedfield']); $x++) {
?>
<?php
// mysqli insert here
?>
<?php
}
?>

Then in your insert bindings use something like:
<?php echo($_POST['loopedfield'][$x]); ?>

insert bindings?

Hey thanks Ray. Umm... Insert Bindings? I don't quite follow which chunk that is.. Sorry to sound dense.

I mean the bindings tab in the insert server behavior.

OK

I think I'm following now. Will try.

You would bind it to whatever column you want it to be inserted into on the bindings tab.
