    Read Dir help

    With the code below. how could I make it so that if after it reads five out of the ten folders it goes to a new line or table??

    PHP Code:
    //Open directory
    $location=opendir("./");
    echo 
    "<table cellpadding=\"0\" cellspacing=\"0\" ><tr>";
    //List items in directory
    while(($directory=readdir($location)) !== false) {

    //Directory filter
    if($directory!= '.' && $directory!= '..'){
    if(
    is_dir($directory)){

    //Include index files from directories
    echo "<td valign=\"top\" align=\"center\"><div id='".$directory."'>"; include($directory.'/index.php'); echo "</div></td>";}}}
    echo 
    "</tr></table>";
    closedir($location); 
    Thanks, S.

    Declare an array, push all the entries into the array with array_push(), course over the array with a for loop and suitable conditional statements.

    too many ways : , simplistic would be as below & just echo a </tr><tr> every 5 iterations, if the total count is not divisible by 5 grab $tr value and make up the empty space at the end.

    PHP Code:
    echo '<table><tr>';
    $tr=$x=0;
    while(++
    $x<=100){
    /**the relevant bit*/
     
    if($tr>=5){
        echo 
    '</tr><tr>';
        
    $tr=0;
      } 
     ++
    $tr;
    /**/
     
    echo "<td>$x</td>";
    }
    echo 
    '</tr></table>'
    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)
