Dynamically create variables in PHP

This blog is to show how you can create variables in PHP dynamically.

Here are some sample codes:

This code will create five variable dynamically for you.


//create a initial variable for naming the dynamic variables

$var_name = “some_name_”;


//loop will generate the variable

for( $i = 1 ; $i <= 5 ; $i++ )


$var_name .= $i ;

$$var_name = //do something ;



You will get five variables with name $some_name_1, $some_name_2, $some_name_3, $some_name_4 and $some_name_5.


Let me know if you have any problem understanding it.
