I am working on a Weekly Calendar for a project and there has to be a better way.

Pease don't write the code....just point me in the right direction....

Code:
   $year = $today[year];

   $month = $today[mon];
   $day = $today[mday];

   

$tomorrow = mktime(0,0,0,date("m"),date("d")+1,date("Y"));
echo date("Y/m/d", $tomorrow);
echo "<br>";
$tomorrow2 = mktime(0,0,0,date("m"),date("d")+2,date("Y"));
echo date("Y/m/d", $tomorrow2);
echo "<br>";
$tomorrow3 = mktime(0,0,0,date("m"),date("d")+3,date("Y"));
echo date("Y/m/d", $tomorrow3);
echo "<br>";
$tomorrow4 = mktime(0,0,0,date("m"),date("d")+4,date("Y"));
echo date("Y/m/d", $tomorrow4);
echo "<br>";
$tomorrow5 = mktime(0,0,0,date("m"),date("d")+5,date("Y"));
echo date("Y/m/d", $tomorrow5);
echo "<br>";
$tomorrow6 = mktime(0,0,0,date("m"),date("d")+6,date("Y"));
echo date("Y/m/d", $tomorrow6);
echo "<br>";


This is what I have and it works. What I would really like is an array holding mdY so I can loop through the rest of the code with it.

My bet is that it is real simple and I am having a old age moment.

Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! is very useful for these types of things.

There is a lot of date related code you could look at in GCalendar. Smile Check out the viewweek.php file (I think that is what it is called). That file does GCalendar's weekly view.

Thanks guys. I was already on those like stink. The reak issue is being able to take a users input date and then add 7 days to it.

Take 1-28-08 for example. The function has to be aware that Jan has 31 days and go from 1-31-08 to 2-1-08. I have a loop of really cool stuff to roll through if I can ever get this right.

Yup, like I said, strtotime is really useful for those types of things. It can parse things like "1-28-08 +7 days".

I have the array and I have it working....but I can not seem to change the date.

I am bringing in varibles from user input...

Code:


echo $month;
echo $day;
echo $year;
$dates_array = array();
for ($i=0; $i<7; $i++) {
  $dates_array[] = date('M-d-Y', strtotime("+$i days"));
}
echo "<br>";
echo $dates_array[1];
echo "<br>";
echo $dates_array[2];
echo "<br>";
echo $dates_array[3];
echo "<br>";
echo $dates_array[4];
echo "<br>";
echo $dates_array[5];
echo "<br>";
echo $dates_array[6];
echo "<br>";


I have tried a 1000 versions of
Code:
$dates_array = array();

for ($i=0; $i<7; $i++) {
  $dates_array[] = date('M-d-Y', strtotime("+$i days"));
}


but I can not get it to except the date input by the users. Guys can you give me a hint....this thing is driving me nuts!

In your <form> are you using GET or POST?

Whichever, your PHP script has to pull those values in from the $_GET or $_POST array.

Example:
$month = $_GET['month']
or
$month = $_POST['month']

LOL....That was just where I was echoing out the vars to make sure they were coming through correctly....

This is were I am setting them...

Code:
   $year = (int)$_POST['pyear'];

   $month = (int)$_POST['pmonth'];
   $day = (int)$_POST['pday'];




What I need help with is how to reset the date in the datas array to the year, month and day as set by the user.

Thanks for the help.

You set $year, $month, and $day... but no where do you use these values to insert into $dates_array

Try something like this.

$dates_array = array();
for ($i=0; $i<7; $i++) {
$inDate = "$month-$day-$year";
$inDate = strtotime($inDate);
$inDate = strtotime("+$i days", $inDate);
$dates_array[] = date('M-d-Y', $inDate);
}

Raven,
Thank You! I would have NEVER figured that out!! With your help there I got it!! WOOT WOOT!

Thank You to everyone for your help!
