Hello.

I'm used to doing foreach routines in smarty, but now discovered the SECTION function, to display 2-column tables Smile

Its easy enough.

However, I have an array

Data1
-Name=Bob
-Surname=Jones
-Region=USA
Data2
-Name=Jill
-Surname=Jacks
-Region=USA
Data3
-Name=John
-Surname=Jacks
-Region=Britain

Are there any examples / tutorials to do an IF command - Or using SECTION, to only display information if "Region" is USA ??

and then, to display $array[$loop][Name] - Or something, so i can display or not to display a variable ?

in a FOREACH loop, you have 'key' & 'item' which you can use to reference data, but i can't see in the examples I've found, how you use 'key' or 'item' equivalents in the section command.

Thank you

I read online that the SECTION function is a bit limited, and we should use foreach.

I found a useful smarty script that worked
