      PHP - add to filemaker search results array

      Your post

      I am using PHP and Filemaker to develop a web app. This is mostly completed and I am quite pleased with the integration of the two technologies. I do have one issue I have yet to resolve. Here are some details:

      I first use PHP to gather the users geolocation.

      The data pulled from Filemaker includes geolocation information.

      Then perform a search in the Filemaker DB showing result that fall into a given geographic radius of the user.

      Then I use PHP again to display the results with a foreach statement.

      Now what I want to do here is compare the geolocation info from Filemaker and that gathered from the users device allowing the results to be sorted by closest.

      My issue is that I have to put the comparision data back into an array that also carries the Filemaker search results.

      Then do a sorted foreach statement with PHP.

      I can't seem to figure out a working method to add and array properly into the existing Filemaker results. 

      Any help here is very much appreciated.
