I am a new member. I have a question about form page and confirmation page.

The question is how to get word count in confirmation page from form page by PHP. The program is as below which is part of whole page. 


Function of getting word count is:  str_word_count($_POST["sentence"]

I am waiting for fast answer from a member.


[form page, by html]

<form name="namae" method="post" action="">

    <table class="formTable">


      <th>language combination</th>

   <td><select name=" language combination ">

      <option value="" selected> ----</option>

      <option value="japaneseenglish">  japaneseenglish </option>

      <option value=" englishjapanese ">  englishjapanese </option>    


   <td><input size="30" type="hidden" name="word_count" /></td>



        <th> sentence </th>

       <td><textarea name="sentence" rows="4" cols="40"></textarea></td></tr>



[confirmation page, by php]


function confirmOutput($arr){

global $hankaku,$hankaku_array;

$html = '';

foreach($arr as $key => $val) {

$out = '';  



foreach($val as $key02 => $item){



      $out .= connect2val($item);


      $out .= $item . ', ';



  $out = rtrim($out,', ');

}else{ $out = $val; }

if(get_magic_quotes_gpc()) { $out = stripslashes($out); } 

$out = nl2br(h($out));

$key = h($key);       

I tried as follows:
  I added:
      $out .= str_word_count($_POST["sentence"]).;

     $out = nl2br(h($out));


But in all columns word count was added. I need word count only in textarea.

Here is how string concatenation works in PHP:

$a = 'Test';
$a .= '123';

echo $a; // Test123

In your example you are adding the word count to $out. This would work:

$number_count = str_word_count($_POST["sentence"]);

Now that variable $number_count has the word count you are looking for.
