Issue Parsing XML into table


Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

Hello all,

Im a bit new to php and new to phpfreaks. But thanks in advance for the help!

Im parsing an xml feed into a table. The only problem is that one of the fields can not format properly in the table.

Here is how the page is working now: http://russiancirclesband.com/tour.php

The "With" column is spacing out $OtherArtists out one entry per line, whereas it should have however many $OtherArtists were listed on that line per date.

Here is the PHP
Code:
<?php

$xml_file = "XML FEED";

$xml_City_key = "*SHOWS*SHOW*CITY";
$xml_VenueName_key = "*SHOWS*SHOW*VENUENAME";
$xml_VenueZip_key = "*SHOWS*SHOW*VENUEZIP";
$xml_VenueAddress_key = "*SHOWS*SHOW*VENUEADDRESS";
$xml_TicketUri_key = "*SHOWS*SHOW*TICKETURI";
$xml_Description_key = "*SHOWS*SHOW*DESCRIPTION";
$xml_VenueUri_key = "*SHOWS*SHOW*VENUEURI";
$xml_Date_key = "*SHOWS*SHOW*DATE";
$xml_TimeSet_key= "*SHOWS*SHOW*TIMESET";
$xml_State_key = "*SHOWS*SHOW*STATE";
$xml_Country_key = "*SHOWS*SHOW*COUNTRY";
$xml_OtherArtists_key = "*SHOWS*SHOW*OTHERARTISTS*NAME";


$Show_array = array();

$counter = 0;
class xml_Show{
var $City, $VenueName, $VenueZip, $VenueAddress, $TicketUri, $Description, $VenueUri, $Date, $TimeSet, $State, $Country, $OtherArtists ;
}

function startTag($parser, $data){
global $current_tag;
$current_tag .= "*$data";
}

function endTag($parser, $data){
global $current_tag;
$tag_key = strrpos($current_tag, '*');
$current_tag = substr($current_tag, 0, $tag_key);
}

function contents($parser, $data){
global $current_tag, $xml_City_key, $xml_VenueName_key, $xml_VenueZip_key, $xml_VenueAddress_key, $xml_TicketUri_key, $xml_Description_key, $xml_VenueUri_key, $xml_Date_key,$xml_TimeSet_key, $xml_State_key, $xml_Country_key, $xml_OtherArtists_key, $counter, $Show_array;
switch($current_tag){
case $xml_City_key:
$Show_array[$counter] = new xml_Show();
$Show_array[$counter]->City = $data;
break;
case $xml_VenueName_key:
$Show_array[$counter]->VenueName = $data;
break;
case $xml_VenueZip_key:
$Show_array[$counter]->VenueZip = $data;
break;
case $xml_VenueAddress_key:
$Show_array[$counter]->VenueAddress = $data;
break;
case $xml_TicketUri_key:
$Show_array[$counter]->TicketUri = $data;
break;
case $xml_Description_key:
$Show_array[$counter]->Description = $data;
break;
case $xml_VenueUri_key:
$Show_array[$counter]->VenueUri = $data;
break;
case $xml_Date_key:
$Show_array[$counter]->Date = $data;
break;
case $xml_TimeSet_key:
$Show_array[$counter]->TimeSet = $data;
break;
case $xml_State_key:
$Show_array[$counter]->State = $data;
break;
case $xml_Country_key:
$Show_array[$counter]->Country = $data;
break;
case $xml_OtherArtists_key:
$Show_array[$counter]->OtherArtists = $data;
$counter++;
break;

}
}

$xml_parser = xml_parser_create();

xml_set_element_handler($xml_parser, "startTag", "endTag");

xml_set_character_data_handler($xml_parser, "contents");


$data = file_get_contents($xml_file);


if(!(xml_parse($xml_parser, $data))){
die("Error on line " . xml_get_current_line_number($xml_parser));
}
xml_parser_free($xml_parser);

and here is a sample of the xml:

Code: <shows xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="http://feeds.artistdata.com/_css/shows.xsd">
<show>

<venueAddress><![CDATA[361 Metropolitan Ave]]></venueAddress>
<ticketURI><![CDATA[]]></ticketURI>
<description><![CDATA[]]></description>
<ageLimit>All Ages</ageLimit>
<venueURI><![CDATA[http://ny.knittingfactory.com/index.php]]></venueURI>
<ticketPrice><![CDATA[ADV $10 DOOR $12]]></ticketPrice>
<date>2009-12-03</date>
<timeSet>20:30:00</timeSet>

<timeDoors></timeDoors>
<stateAbbreviation>NY</stateAbbreviation>
<state>New York</state>
<countryAbbreviation>US</countryAbbreviation>
<country>United States</country>
<otherArtists>
<name><![CDATA[Cast Spells]]></name>

<uri><![CDATA[http://myspace.com/castspells]]></uri>
</otherArtists>
<artistname>Good Old War</artistname>
<artistKey></artistKey>
</show>
</shows>

So obviously the wall Other Artists are being called is slightly different, but im not exactly sure what is happening. to see what JUST $OtherArtists echo'ing would look like, check out: http://russiancirclesband.com/tour2.php.

Not sure what my next move is.

Thanks again!
