Just to clarify, which part don't you understand? The $data object is an associative array, so you can access the colors using the respective key:

$colors = $page->meta('myData')['colors']; // ['red', 'green', 'blue']

The $colors array is an indexed / numerical array (i.e. it's not associativ), so you can access each of the colors using the numerical key of the position you want:

$colors = $page->meta('myData')['colors']; // ['red', 'green', 'blue']
echo $colors[0]; // red
echo $colors[2]; // blue

Or are you stuck on how to use the meta method itself?

@stanoliver Great 🙂 Array elements that are declared without a key are implicitly numeric in PHP, so the following declarations are equivalent:

$colors = [
	'red',
	'green',
	'blue',
];

$colors = [
	0 => 'red',
	1 => 'green',
	2 => 'blue',
];

You can even mix numerical and associative arrays, but that only leads to confusion in my opinion, so I would avoid it.

@MoritzLost and @szabes First thanks for your additions. Do you guys may have an elegant solution for a  related situation?

Let's asume I have 5 cars in an excel-like-spreadsheet.

Further I have a two rows in a datatable

car1     car2   car3   car4    car5

100      200    300   400     500      (Powerhorses/PS)

If I would like to export the data out of my example above to a csv-file the data in the csv-file may look like

"car1";"car2";"car3";"car4";"car5";

"100";"200";"300";"400";"500";

The syntax of the array declaration

$colors = [
	'red',
	'green',
	'blue',
];

and syntax of my spreadsheet data looks quite similiar. I would be even more similiar if my csv would look like:

'car1','car2','car3','car4','car5'

'100','200','300','400','500'

and therefore I could just copy-paste a raw of my csv-file so that I could become an array declaration like:

$price = [
	'100','200','300','400','500'
];

So the array declaration could be simple done by copy pasting out of my csv file.

Now to the problem: Are their ways to adjust the working syntax/code 

echo $carps[0];
echo $carps[1];
echo $carps[2];
echo $carps[3];
echo $carps[4];

by a loop or also without a loop so that the whole array gets output at once without repeating myself 4 more times.

Also it would be important that the adjusted code leaves a possibilty styling the output with some css.

If you have 5 cars, then you'd have 5 rows of data (1 row = 1 record-set), not 2.

use a classic foreach loop or for debugging purposes print_r($cars)

@dragan Probably you misunderstood me. 

The first row in my spreadsheet is just the names/titles of the cars:  'car1','car2',..., 'car5'

The second row will show the PS (Powerhorses) of my cars: '100','200','300','400','500'

So 5 columns and 1 row is totally fine.

A foreach loop with an icrement will work but is there no shorter/more comfortable way possible at least if my amount of cars (5 columns) will be fixed.

Something like in my own "pseudo-Code": 

echo $carps[0-4];

which would output the ps of the first car, then the ps of the second car and so on ...

@stanoliver I don't quite understand your situation, but if you have some data in an array, you have a couple of methods to output it. A simple foreach loop will keep the code at the same length regardless of how many columns you need:

$prices = [
	'100', '200', '300', '400', '500'
];

foreach ($prices as $price) {
    echo $price . ' ';
}

// output:
// 100 200 300 400 500 
// note there's one final space after "500"

If you need to have something in between each item, for example a comma for CSV-style notation, you can use implode:

$prices = [
	'100', '200', '300', '400', '500'
];

echo implode(', ', $prices);

// output:
// 100, 200, 300, 400, 500

Finally, if you need to add something before or after each item or manipulate the items in some way, you can use array_map, which applies a callback function to each element of the array and returns a new array with the return values. For example, to wrap each element in double quotes for the CSV delimiters:

$prices = [
	'100', '200', '300', '400', '500'
];

echo implode(',', array_map(function ($price) {
	return '"' . $price . '"';
}, $prices));

// output:
// "100","200","300","400","500"

Hi @MoritzLost your provided examples just work great. Two little things I still have not found out yet:

1. In the backend I created a simple text field named "datarow". In my php-template I wanna use your example 

$prices = [
	'100', '200', '300', '400', '500'
];

foreach ($prices as $price) {
    echo $price . ' ';
}

which just works fine. How do I have to change the code of your example if I want everything between the [ ] to be my field "datarow"? How to change the foreach?

With repeating a lot of code I would do something like:
 

$prices = [ '100', '200', '300', '400', '500' ];  // 

$prices2 = [ '500', '400', '300', '4040', '5400' ];

Desired output would be something like (no comes pseudocode) on a normal processwire page:

foreach start

$prices = [ datarow ]; // datarow ist the created simple textfield which should be editable by an enduser

foreach end

I tried something like 

<?php
echo $prices=[<?= $page->datarow ?>] ;
?>

which could not work because nested php-code throws errors and the foreach is not even implemented.

@stanoliver Assuming the text from your datarow field looks something like this:

100,200,300,400,500

You can use the explode function to split the string into an array using the commas as a delimiter. For example:

$prices = explode(',', $page->datarow); // ["100", "200", "300", "400", "500"]

      Hello dear PW gurus.

      I have stumbled over a strange error that i all of sudden got when trying to upload an image to a images field on a page.
      There where images allready stored in the field that i wanted to keep, but during the upload the error apear and after that all images are gone from the field and i can´t upload any, i just get the error every time.
      I am running ProcessWire 3.0.153 dev.
      Update:
      After looking in the assets folder i find the folder for the page and the image files seems to be there including the ones i tried to upload when the error occured.
      But they don´t show up in the images field in the page editor.
       
      The error reported:
       
      SQLSTATE[01000]: Warning: 1265 Data truncated for column 'ratio' at row 1 And here is a screenshot of the event:

      The TracyDebugger Error reporting:

      I hope you fine folks could point me in a direction.
      But it seems our old pal set_time_limit() is back.

      Hello
      I'm having a strange issue with the $page->find(), for some reason I'm missing some of the pages from the results. I found then that I was missing all the pages with the same "PAGE NAME". Is it a bug or am I missing something?
      PS 
      If I change the "PAGE NAME" of one of the missing ones then I'm retrieving the page without any problem.
      Thank you

      Hi, Looking to create form elements on a page–some input with a colection of form inputs and the appropriate labels and variables for that input. I've used ProForms in the past and rolled out my own when creating simply one off forms, but I wonder if anyone has found a good way of allowing form creation on page editing so that clients can adhocly make and edit forms?
      Thanks

      Hello Dear PW Gurus.

      Hope you fair well in these Corona Crisis times.

      Anyhow, i have a problem with a Cryptic error message that shows up when i am trying to Delete images out of a Images field.
      The Error message does say a little but it does not make sense to me why i can´t delete the images because of it.

      Is it some permission issue perhaps?

      I will attach screenshots of it and what i did prior to it.
      I am from sweden so ignore the funny words here and there.

      Hope you all can send me on the right track.
      i am running PW 3.0.139 on this install.

      Step1:

      Step 2: Select the images with the trashcan symbol

       
      Step 3: Cryptic Error message

      I am scratching my head on this one, have not seen this before.

      Thankfull for all help.

      I have been experimenting with the new $page->meta() method and find it useful.

      Once i figured out that the data i "save" with it is tied to the page where i called the method from.

      So this is not obvious at least not for me in the documentation:
      https://processwire.com/api/ref/page/meta/
       
      So i just wanted to share that revelation with the community so you don´t get as confused as i was.

      Happy Coding Everyone.
