in (PHP 5 >= 5.5.0) you don't have to write your own function to search through a multi dimensional array

ex :

$userdb=Array
(
    (0) => Array
        (
            (uid) => '100',
            (name) => 'Sandra Shush',
            (url) => 'urlof100'
        ),

    (1) => Array
        (
            (uid) => '5465',
            (name) => 'Stefanie Mcmohn',
            (pic_square) => 'urlof100'
        ),

    (2) => Array
        (
            (uid) => '40489',
            (name) => 'Michael',
            (pic_square) => 'urlof40489'
        )
);

simply u can use this

$key = array_search(40489, array_column($userdb, 'uid'));

About searcing in multi-dimentional arrays; two notes on "xfoxawy at gmail dot com";

It perfectly searches through multi-dimentional arrays combined with array_column() (min php 5.5.0) but it may not return the values you'd expect.

<?php array_search($needle, array_column($array, 'key')); ?>

Since array_column() will produce a resulting array; it won't preserve your multi-dimentional array's keys. So if you check against your keys, it will fail.

For example;

<?php
$people
= array(
 
2 => array(
   
'name' => 'John',
   
'fav_color' => 'green'
 
),
 
5=> array(
   
'name' => 'Samuel',
   
'fav_color' => 'blue'
 
)
);

$found_key = array_search('blue', array_column($people, 'fav_color'));
?>

Here, you could expect that the $found_key would be "5" but it's NOT. It will be 1. Since it's the second element of the produced array by the array_column() function.

Secondly, if your array is big, I would recommend you to first assign a new variable so that it wouldn't call array_column() for each element it searches. For a better performance, you could do;

<?php
$colors
= array_column($people, 'fav_color');
$found_key = array_search('blue', $colors);
?>

one thing to be very aware of is that array_search() will fail if the needle is a string and the array itself contains values that are mixture of numbers and strings.  (or even a string that looks like a number)

The problem is that unless you specify "strict" the match is done using ==    and in that case any string will match a numeric value of zero which is not what you want.

-----

also, php can lookup an index pretty darn fast.  for many scenarios, it is practical to maintain multiple arrays, one in which the index of the array is the search key and the normal array that contains the data.

<?php

  $normal
[$index] = array('key'=>$key, 'data'=>'foo');
 
$inverse[$key] = $index;

 
//very fast lookup, this beats any other kind of search

 
if (array_key_exists($key, $inverse))
  {
   
$index = $inverse[$key];
    return
$normal[$index];
  }

?>

the recursive function by tony have a small bug. it failes when a key is 0

here is the corrected version of this helpful function:

<?php
function recursive_array_search($needle,$haystack) {
    foreach(
$haystack as $key=>$value) {
       
$current_key=$key;
        if(
$needle===$value OR (is_array($value) && recursive_array_search($needle,$value) !== false)) {
            return
$current_key;
        }
    }
    return
false;
}
?>

If you are using the result of array_search in a condition statement, make sure you use the === operator instead of == to test whether or not it found a match.  Otherwise, searching through an array with numeric indicies will result in index 0 always getting evaluated as false/null.  This nuance cost me a lot of time and sanity, so I hope this helps someone.  In case you don't know what I'm talking about, here's an example:

<?php
$code
= array("a", "b", "a", "c", "a", "b", "b"); // infamous abacabb mortal kombat code :-P

// this is WRONG
while (($key = array_search("a", $code)) != NULL)
{
// infinite loop, regardless of the unset
unset($code[$key]);
}

// this is _RIGHT_
while (($key = array_search("a", $code)) !== NULL)
{
// loop will terminate
unset($code[$key]);
}
?>

To expand on previous comments, here are some examples of
where using array_search within an IF statement can go
wrong when you want to use the array key thats returned.

Take the following two arrays you wish to search:

<?php
$fruit_array
= array("apple", "pear", "orange");
$fruit_array = array("a" => "apple", "b" => "pear", "c" => "orange");

if (
$i = array_search("apple", $fruit_array))
//PROBLEM: the first array returns a key of 0 and IF treats it as FALSE

if (is_numeric($i = array_search("apple", $fruit_array)))
//PROBLEM: works on numeric keys of the first array but fails on the second

if ($i = is_numeric(array_search("apple", $fruit_array)))
//PROBLEM: using the above in the wrong order causes $i to always equal 1

if ($i = array_search("apple", $fruit_array) !== FALSE)
//PROBLEM: explicit with no extra brackets causes $i to always equal 1

if (($i = array_search("apple", $fruit_array)) !== FALSE)
//YES: works on both arrays returning their keys
?>

$array = ['a', 'b', 'c'];
$key = array_search('a', $array); //$key = 0
if ($key)
{
//even a element is found in array, but if (0) means false
//...
}

//the correct way
if (false !== $key)
{
//....
}

It's what the document stated "may also return a non-Boolean value which evaluates to FALSE."

for searching case insensitive better this:

<?php
array_search
(strtolower($element),array_map('strtolower',$array));
?>

If you only know a part of a value in an array and want to know the complete value, you can use the following function:
<?php
function array_find($needle, $haystack)
{
   foreach (
$haystack as $item)
   {
      if (
strpos($item, $needle) !== FALSE)
      {
         return
$item;
         break;
      }
   }
}
?>
The function returns the complete first value of $haystack that contains $needle.

I needed a way to return the value of a single specific key, thus:

<?php

function recursive_return_array_value_by_key($needle, $haystack){
   
$return = false;
    foreach(
$haystack as $key => $val){
        if(
is_array($val)){
           
$return = recursive_return_array_value_by_key($needle, $val);
        }
        else if(
$needle === $key){
            return
"$val\n";
        }
    }
    return
$return;
}

?>

Better solution of multidimensional searching.

<?php
function multidimensional_search($parents, $searched) {
  if (empty(
$searched) || empty($parents)) {
    return
false;
  }

  foreach (
$parents as $key => $value) {
   
$exists = true;
    foreach (
$searched as $skey => $svalue) {
     
$exists = ($exists && IsSet($parents[$key][$skey]) && $parents[$key][$skey] == $svalue);
    }
    if(
$exists){ return $key; }
  }

  return
false;
}

$parents = array();
$parents[] = array('date'=>1320883200, 'uid'=>3);
$parents[] = array('date'=>1320883200, 'uid'=>5);
$parents[] = array('date'=>1318204800, 'uid'=>5);

echo
multidimensional_search($parents, array('date'=>1320883200, 'uid'=>5)); // 1
?>

FYI, remember that strict mode is something that might save you hours.

If you're searching for a string and you have a "true" boolean on the way - you will get it as result (first occurrence). Example below:

<?php

$arr
= [
   
'foo'    => 'bar',
   
'abc'    => 'def',
   
'bool'   => true,
   
'target' => 'xyz'
];

var_dump( array_search( 'xyz', $arr ) ); //bool
var_dump( array_search( 'xyz', $arr, true ) ); //target

?>

hey i have a easy multidimensional array search function

<?php
function search($array, $key, $value)
{
   
$results = array();

    if (
is_array($array))
    {
        if (isset(
$array[$key]) && $array[$key] == $value)
           
$results[] = $array;

        foreach (
$array as $subarray)
           
$results = array_merge($results, search($subarray, $key, $value));
    }

    return
$results;
}
?>

I was going to complain bitterly about array_search() using zero-based indexes, but then I realized I should be using in_array() instead.

// if ( isset( $_GET['table'] ) and array_search( $_GET['table'], $valid_tables) ) {  // BAD: fails on first[0] element
// if ( isset( $_GET['table'] ) and ( FALSE !== array_search( $_GET['table'], $valid_tables) ) ) { OKwn" title="Vote down!" class="usernotelase/>
