[thelist] PHP enum

Are you consuming this using WSDL to generate a proxy client, or are you
manually calling each method?  

This is probably due to the fact that the service is not looking for a
native PHP simple data type, but actually SOAP data type.  You'll have to
look in their API docs for what the definition of that type is.

I am consuming the web services in this manner:

$sResults = new soapclient('http://localhost/Search.asmx?WSDL', true);

$param = array('aName' => $app, 'sName' => $sess, 'arName' => $arch, 'rName'
=> $rep, 'page' => $ip, 'pageSize' => $ps, 'query' => $q, 'sFlags' => $f,
'sf' => $sort, 'snap' => $sShot);

$results = $sResults->call('searcher', array('parameters' => $param));

So, YES, I do believe that the service provides WSDL - is there a resource I
could reference to show how to use WSDL on the client side?

The WSDL schema looks like this:

<s:element name="ss_search">
  			<s:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="aName"
type="s:string" /> 
  			<s:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="sName"
type="s:string" /> 
  			<s:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="arName"
type="s:string" /> 
  			<s:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1"
name="repName" type="s:string" /> 
  			<s:element minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1" name="page"
type="s:int" /> 
  			<s:element minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1"
name="pageSize" type="s:int" /> 
  			<s:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="query"
type="s:string" /> 
  			<s:element minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1" name="sFlags"
type="tns:ESFlags" /> 
  			<s:element minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="sf"
type="s:string" /> 
  			<s:element minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1" name="snap"
type="s:int" /> 

<s:simpleType name="ESFlags">
			<s:restriction base="s:string">
  				<s:enumeration value="Snapshot" /> 
  				<s:enumeration value="Search" /> 
  				<s:enumeration value="Descending" /> 

So what I need is to pass all the parameters into the web service as either
string or integers - except for "sFlags" - that needs to be an Enums. SO far
all I have been able to do is set it to a string or integer, but the web
service rejects this as the wrong format.

Any ideas how to send "sFlags" in as an Enum?

Thanks for your help!
