PHP States

October 2, 2006

Just wrote and used this little snippet. Thought I’d post it for when I need it again.

An example usage, as if it isn’t obvious.

foreach($states as $state)
  print "
print "";

In case it’s unfamiliar to you, the (($row['prospect_state'] == $state) ? "selected=\"selected\" " : "") is called the ternary operator, also known as “fancy little if/else”.

Update (10/02/06)
Update, here’s a beefier version.

$states_list = array(
  'DC'=>"District Of Columbia",  
  'NH'=>"New Hampshire",
  'NJ'=>"New Jersey",
  'NM'=>"New Mexico",
  'NY'=>"New York",
  'NC'=>"North Carolina",
  'ND'=>"North Dakota",
  'RI'=>"Rhode Island",  
  'SC'=>"South Carolina",  
  'SD'=>"South Dakota",
  'WV'=>"West Virginia",
