Multi-Dimensional PHP Array Search

Hi Guys

I’m busy with a really cool PHP project. I thought today, I would share a multi-dimensional search function that you can use in PHP.

###Multi-Dimensional PHP Array Search


    $find = What you're searching for
    $array = The array you want to search in
    $inField = The field in the array in which you will find $find

function searchInArray($find, $array, $inField) {
   foreach ($array as $key => $value) {
       if ($value[$inField] === $find) {
           return TRUE;
   return FALSE;

That is an adaptation of the script outlined by Jakub Truneček here
