array_search

(PHP 4 >= 4.0.5)

array_search --  Searches the array for a given value and returns the corresponding key if successful

Description

mixed array_search ( mixed needle, array haystack [, bool strict])

Searches haystack for needle and returns the key if it is found in the array, FALSE otherwise.

Note: Prior to PHP 4.2.0, array_search() returns NULL on failure instead of FALSE.

If the optional third parameter strict is set to TRUE then the array_search() will also check the types of the needle in the haystack.

Warning

This function may return Boolean FALSE, but may also return a non-Boolean value which evaluates to FALSE, such as 0 or "". Please read the section on Booleans for more information. Use the === operator for testing the return value of this function.

See also array_keys(), array_values(), array_key_exists(), and in_array().
