I was already on that path, but I think I have a more complex need.
For one image & associated info, this works great, but I have 10 of
each, and the data needs to stay aligned 1-10.
For example, if there is no caption text for image 5, the image array
will only have 9 items...of if I flipped the array, I would end up with
the delete value in the caption slot.
contents of text file:
file1.jpg}this is a caption
file2.jpg}this is a caption
file4.jpg}this is a caption
file5.jpg}this is a caption
file6.jpg}this is a caption
file7.jpg}this is a caption
file8.jpg}this is a caption
file10.jpg}this is a caption
multidimensional array coming from the html form:
var $file $caption/text input checkbox radio
1 file1.jpg this is a caption delete
2 file2.jpg this is a caption
4 file4.jpg edit this caption
5 file5.jpg this is a
6 file6.jpg this is a caption
7 file7.jpg this is a caption
8 file8.jpg this is a caption delete
10 file10.jpg this is a caption
I am unclear how to reference a multidimensional array in the html form.
I can't use just one array per line/loop, due to the syncing problems.
Maybe I will just check for a null $new_caption and make it "no caption" and
remove that text in display. that would keep  and  consistent...
