HTML Question

How can i parse json into a html table using PHP?

I have to get a table in my website. And have to get the data for this table from
"http://west.basketball.nl/db/json/stand.pl?szn_Naam=2014-2015&cmp_ID=373"
I've tried a lot of thing but nothing works....

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<?php
$json=file_get_contents("http://west.basketball.nl/db/json
/stand.pl?szn_Naam=2014-2015&cmp_ID=373");
$data = json_decode($json);

if (count($data)) {
// Open the table
echo "<table>";

// Cycle through the array
foreach ($data as $stand) {

// Output a row
echo "<tr>";
echo "<td>$afko</td>";
echo "<td>$positie</td>";
echo "</tr>";
}

// Close the table
echo "</table>";
}
?>
</body>
</html>

Answer

Ok first thing to do when getting data from an external source is to understand what is being returned.

So do

<?php
$json=file_get_contents("http://west.basketball.nl/db/json/stand.pl?szn_Naam=2014-2015&cmp_ID=373");
$data =  json_decode($json);

print_r($data);

Result:

)

So now you know you are dealing with an OBJECT and not scalar values or an array.

So try this code:-

<?php
    $json=file_get_contents("http://west.basketball.nl/db/json/stand.pl?szn_Naam=2014-2015&cmp_ID=373");
    $data =  json_decode($json);

    if (count($data->stand)) {
        // Open the table
        echo "<table>";

        // Cycle through the array
        foreach ($data->stand as $idx => $stand) {

            // Output a row
            echo "<tr>";
            echo "<td>$stand->afko</td>";
            echo "<td>$stand->positie</td>";
            echo "</tr>";
        }

        // Close the table
        echo "</table>";
    }
?>
