View Full Version : Help with... nullifying a field, I guess?

Ok. First and foremost, I am very, very new to PHP. I can't script from scratch, I can edit just fine, and I managed to get a template for a game that I play and I am working on making a script to report 'best out of 3 games.' My problem is, if a player wins their first 2 matches, the third match results field still shows. How can I prevent this? I can attach the two pages, I'm not sure how else to explain this!

You can actually imbed PHP code anywhere in the html you want. So you could do something like this:


<p>Match results:</p>
for ($i = 0; $i < count($matchResults); $i++) {
if (isset($matchResults[$i])) {
print "Results from Match 1: {$matchResults[$i]}!<br>\n";
<p>End of results!</p>

I just made up the details of the code-- I don't expect you'll be able to just cut and paste it. It's the concept that's important here. Everything between <?php and ?> will be processed by PHP before the page comes back to your browser and all you'll see is the results from the print statement.
