0

Issue

I’ve a following associative array named $data

Array
(
    [0] => Array
        (
            [transaction_user_id] => 359691e27b23f8ef3f8e1c50315cd506
            [transaction_no] => 19500912050218
            [transaction_total_amount] => 589.00
            [transaction_date] => 1335932419
            [transaction_status] => cancelled
        )

    [1] => Array
        (
            [transaction_user_id] => 9def02e6337b888d6dbe5617a172c18d
            [transaction_no] => 36010512050819
            [transaction_total_amount] => 79.00
            [transaction_date] => 1336476696
            [transaction_status] => cancelled
        )

    [2] => Array
        (
            [transaction_user_id] => 9def02e6337b888d6dbe5617a172c18d
            [transaction_no] => 19020512050820
            [transaction_total_amount] => 299.00
            [transaction_date] => 1336476739
            [transaction_status] => cancelled
        )

    [3] => Array
        (
            [transaction_user_id] => 9def02e6337b888d6dbe5617a172c18d
            [transaction_no] => 27050512050821
            [transaction_total_amount] => 79.00
            [transaction_date] => 1336476927
            [transaction_status] => cancelled
        )

    [4] => Array
        (
            [transaction_user_id] => 8e9050a3646c98342b9ba079fba80982
            [transaction_no] => 12070512050822
            [transaction_total_amount] => 129.00
            [transaction_date] => 1336477032
            [transaction_status] => cancelled
        )

)

and I want to convert the value of key [transaction_date] into user readable format (i.e. mm/dd/yyyy). For that I written the following code in a function which returns the whole array:

 foreach($data as $value)
 {
    $value[transaction_date]=date('d/m/Y',$value[transaction_date]);
 }
    
 return $data;

My problem is I’m getting the same array without changing the value of [transaction_date] for all the array elements. Actually array with updated values for [transaction_date] is expected to be returned.
Can anyone help me out to resolve this issue? Thanks in advance.

Solution

Change your foreach to something like this, You are not assigning data back to your return variable $data after performing operation on that.

foreach($data as $key => $value)
{
  $data[$key]['transaction_date'] = date('d/m/Y',$value['transaction_date']);
}
