page meta

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.

      Hi,
      is there a hook after the current (active) page got created? Or which method got called in the Page class after the Constructor of the current page got initialized?
      Thanks.

      Hi guys,
      the field "redirect_last" of type DateTime got not updated. The update on the field "redirect_counter" works and got saved.
      Does anybody know what I did wrong in my code?
      if ($input->urlSegment(1) === 'redirect') { $page->of(false); $page->redirect_last = time(); $page->redirect_counter += 1; if ($page->save('redirect_counter')) { $session->redirect($page->website_url, 302); } } Thanks.

      Hi there! And thanks for Processwire!
      I have an interesting task which i cannot fulfill as i want. Maybe someone could help me please?
      Let's imagine a simple page structure of this kind:
      Category 1
      + Item 1.1
      + Item 1.2
      Category 2
      + Item 2.1
      + Item 2.2
      My task is to attach some items to more than one category, at least to show some items on different frontend category pages. With PW, it's a piece of cake. I've just created a field called Items (of type Page Reference) and attrached it to Category template. Since i have lots of items inside each category i preferred to use Page Autocomplete input for my Items field. The pages available for autocomplete are restricted by a very simple selector:
      template=item
      It works like a charm. But later i decided to make this autocomplete even smarter and to exclude current category children items from it. I tried to update my selector this way...
      template=item,parent!=(page)
      ...and oops, this broke my selector. My autocomplete founds nothing. Sorry, i had to replace the square braces by () because of this forum limitations, i swear i'm using square brackets in real-life selector!
      What am i doing wrong? And is there any way to include current page info in autocomplete-related selectors? Thanks in advance!

      So I ran into a very strange issue today. I have a template with a pagetable and I went to add an item to it, when I went to select an image (for an image field) the page instantly threw up an error
      "ProcessPageSearchLive: No search specified"
      The page's content also switched to the image attached. This all worked perfectly last week (local mamp box). Has anyone experienced this before, and how did you solve it?

      Hi everyone, 
      Is there a way for us to replicate the "http://mydomain.com/processwire/page/edit/?id=xxx" and change the template to match my site template? 
      I'm terribly happy with the admin / backend page edit. It covers literaly everything I want to empower my non super admin user in updating pages such as validation, repeater management, file upload. 
      I wish not to allow the users to see the backend for both security and aesthetic reasons. 
      Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
