[ array->find ]


[array->find] returns an array of elements that match the parameter.

Accepts a single parameter of any data type. If the array contains any pair values, only the first part of the pair is compared with the parameter of the [array->find] method.

If no elements in the array match the parameter to the [array->find] method then an empty array is returned.

To find an element in an array of pairs:

Use the [array->find] method with the value of the first element of the pairs that should be returned from the array.

The following example shows an array of pairs returned from the tag, each of which has a first element of 'John Doe'.


var( People_Array = array('John Doe' = 'Person One',
                          'Jane Doe' = 'Person Two', 
                          'Joe Surname' = 'Person Three', 
                          'John Doe' = 'Person Four') )

$People_Array->find('John Doe')


array((John Doe = Person One), (John Doe = Person Four))
