Hi there,

I have finally figured out the shopping cart thing with arrays, but I
have one final problem with it.

As a reminder, an example of my shopping cart checkout form can be
seen here:

I am passing all the information needed to update the user's shopping
cart to the array through the form fields, by ending their names with

I am then putting these values into an array for each line and
updating the db table:

if (isset($update_buy))
	$numrows = count($size1);
	for ($i = 0; $i < $numrows; ++$i)
                db update code here

the only problem is that I don't know how to pass the image number
into this code for each row? It's not a form element in the checkout

The user's id is a session variable and so can be grabbed out the air,
the form values all come in through the array, but without the image
number it's all pointless as I can't target the db tale row to be

I can't work out how to get it so it can be used in the array loop.

Any ideas?

thanks very much - dunstan
