# Is it possible to combine PHP's filter_input() filter flags with AND/OR?

PHPServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Yes, it is possible to combine filter_input() with AND/OR in PHP. This can be done by looping over the POST fields−

$value = filter_input(INPUT_POST, 'field', FILTER_DEFAULT, is_array($_POST['field']) ? FILTER_REQUIRE_ARRAY : NULL);

An equivalent for the same user for each loop has been shown below−

$memory = array(); //looping through all posted values foreach($_POST as $key =>$value) {
//applying a filter for the array
if(is_array($value)) {$ memory [$key] = filter_input(INPUT_POST,$key, {filters for array});
}
else {
$memory [$key] = filter_input(INPUT_POST, \$key, {filters for scalar});
}
}
