Get HTML List Of Array Keys

·
Sometimes I find it useful having an overview about the keys an array has; PHP function Get_Array_Keys_UL will create an nested HTML Unordered List string of the keys of a given array. Makes best sense with literal keys, e.g. $_POST:

/**
 * Creates recursively a nested HTML UL of array keys.
 * @param array $array Array
 * @return string Nested UL string
 */
function Get_Array_Keys_UL($array=array()) {
 $recursion=__FUNCTION__;
 if (empty($array)) return '';
 $out='
    '."\n"; foreach ($array as $key => $elem) $out .= '
  • '.$key.$recursion($elem).'
  • '."\n"; $out .= '
'."\n"; return $out; }
Use like this: $ul=Get_Array_Keys_UL($_POST); echo $ul;
