How to discard a variable from a PHP session array

0 votes

I have PHP code that is used to add variables to a session:

<?php
    session_start();
    if(isset($_GET['name']))
    {
        $name = isset($_SESSION['name']) ? $_SESSION['name'] : array();
        $name[] = $_GET['name'];
        $_SESSION['name'] = $name;
    }
    if (isset($_POST['remove']))
    {
        unset($_SESSION['name']);
    }
?>
<pre>  <?php print_r($_SESSION); ?>  </pre>

<form name="input" action="index.php?name=<?php echo $list ?>" method="post">
  <input type="submit" name ="add"value="Add" />
</form>

<form name="input" action="index.php?name=<?php echo $list2 ?>" method="post">
  <input type="submit" name="remove" value="Remove" />
</form>

I want to remove the variable that is shown in $list2 from the session array when the user chooses 'Remove'.

But when I unset, ALL the variables in the array are deleted.

How I can delete just one variable?

Hello,

Try this:

if (isset($_POST['remove'])) {
    $key=array_search($_GET['name'],$_SESSION['name']);
    if($key!==false)
    unset($_SESSION['name'][$key]);
    $_SESSION["name"] = array_values($_SESSION["name"]);
} 

Since $_SESSION['name'] is an array, you need to find the array key that points at the name value you're interested in. The last line rearranges the index of the array for the next use.

Hope it helps!!
