read images from directory

anfetienne
424 256MB
hi,

I've got this piece of coding which displays the images within a folder and allows me to add captions to the images using xml. the problem im having is once it reads the folder it is mixing the images up....instead of listing them in order like 1,2,3,4,5 it starts with 1 and then any number will follow. how can i stop it from doing this.

here is the code

how do you determine $item? as it looks, you're displaying the images in the order of the array. maybe some of the array sorting functions will help you.

i had to go through 3 tutorials to get this far with the code....where can i go for the array sorting functions tutorial?

ok asort() & ksort() seems to be a good and simple choice...from my coding which do i add asort() to?

asort($path.$item[$n]); or asort($item[$n]); ?
ksort($path.$item[$n]); or ksort($item[$n]); ?

as described in the manual entry, asort() expects an array as input. thus
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. asort($item);

@anfetienne
well, ksort() will sort your array keys, which are already ordered, so it should not have any effect.

@anfetienne
see post above

its just strange how it wont show the images in the correct order

except that "correct order" is very hard to teach a computer. do a var_dump() before and after sorting, so that you see how the sorting function actually sorts.

i've tried everything i could think of but can't get it to work.

is it possible to order images within a directory by their name rather than letting php just order it how it wants to?

this is my code
