    Passing arrays through hidden input fields

    Does anyone know if this is possible... Or if not... another way of doing it.

    Lets say $list is an array...

    Can one do this:
    PHP Code:
    <input type=hidden name=myarray[] value=$list
    ???

    Thanks.

    probably better to use sessions to track your data .. but you can do ..

    PHP Code:
     <input type="hidden" name="myarray" value="<?=serialize($list);?>" />
    to get the data back into an array later ..

    PHP Code:
    <?$array=unserialize($list);?>
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)
