How to merge two arrays while keeping keys instead of reindexing in php?

0 votes

How can I merge two arrays (one with string => value pairs and another with int => value pairs) while keeping the string/int keys? None of them will ever overlap (because one has only strings and the other has only integers).

Here is my current code (which doesn't work, because array_merge is re-indexing the array with integer keys):

// get all id vars by combining the static and dynamic
$staticIdentifications = array(
 Users::userID => "USERID",
 Users::username => "USERNAME"
);
// get the dynamic vars, formatted: varID => varName
$companyVarIdentifications = CompanyVars::getIdentificationVarsFriendly($_SESSION['companyID']);
// merge the static and dynamic vars (*** BUT KEEP THE INT INDICES ***)
$idVars = array_merge($staticIdentifications, $companyVarIdentifications);

Hello,

Considering that you have

$replaced = array('1' => 'value1', '4' => 'value4');
$replacement = array('4' => 'value2', '6' => 'value3');

Doing $merge = $replacement + $replaced; will output:

Array('4' => 'value2', '6' => 'value3', '1' => 'value1');

The first array from sum will have values in the final output.

Doing $merge = $replaced + $replacement; will output:

Array('1' => 'value1', '4' => 'value4', '6' => 'value3');

Hope this works

thank You!
