Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: Easiest way to...

    Easiest way to...

    I'm in the process of writing a personality test in PHP.

    I'm very new to PHP, but I'm picking it up quickly enough.

    The test will work in a way that adds 1 to a personality-type variable every time the user selects an answer that relates to it.

    I was wondering what the easiest way to select the largest variable (the personality type the user has selected, from choosing the most answers relating to it) at the end of the test, out of all the other variables?

    Is there any 'largest' type of operator that will select the largest number variable out of the set?

    You can push all the values into an array, then use sort() to sort the array and then take the value of the first element (it should be the largest).
