Hi, I'm having trouble displaying my api info in php. Here's what I'm dealing with. This is my object array:
stdClass Object ( [id] => 65112457-0c13-11e6-a9d9-06e39d13679f [date_added] => 2016-04-27 00:59:29 [date_modified] => 2016-06-01 17:02:06 [category_id] => 75882edd-cb81-11e5-b35f-066776a6309b [firstname] => Daniel [preferred_name] => [lastname] => Southwick [email] => Dan@sonrisepalmdale.com [phone] => 661-965-9212 [mobile] => 661-965-9212 [admin] => 0 [contact] => 0 [archived] => 0 [deceased] => 0 [volunteer] => 0 [status] => Active [username] => [last_login] => [country] => [timezone] => [picture] => https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar//?default=https%3A%2F%2Fd3600v6qlurvk.cloudfront.net%2Fimg%2Fdefault-avatar.png&size=200&rating=G [family_id] => 486 [family_relationship] => Primary Contact [custom_a167c950-2817-11e6-9f8a-06023090f36d] => Family Ministries Pastor )
I can display any field with something simple like:
But, when I try the same thing with the custom field I get an error. Ex.
Here's the error I get:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'f8a' (T_STRING), expecting ',' or ';' in /home/einqui5/public_html/elv.php on line 34
You can see that I'm using the correct ID as listed on the array.
I've tried a million different things and nothing seems to work. Can't find anything online about 'f8a' and I can't imagine what syntax would require a comma or semi-colon at that point in the code.
I'm stumped! Please help!
There's two ways you can go about it.
Basically though, what's happening is in this line,
It's treating the - symbols as Minus signs, and trying to perform the following:
$data->custom_a167c950 - 2817 - 11e6 - 9f8a-06023090f36d;
This is rather strange for it to be evaluating.
To prevent this, you can do one of the following things.
Put the ID into a string, and use the String as the reference instead.
$field_id = 'custom_a167c950-2817-11e6-9f8a-06023090f36d'; echo $data->$field_id;
Alternatively, you can convert from a StdObject to an Array, and reference the Array fields.
$arr = (array) $obj; echo $arr['custom_a167c950-2817-11e6-9f8a-06023090f36d'];
Hope this helps,
