another json problem.

another json problem.

another json problem.

hello everyone. im not a professional PHP programmer. but im practicing some skill working with an api(https://api.icowatchlist.com/public/v1/) using php to call and display data that is stored in json on my localhost(wampserver).
my codes are these:
$url = "https://api.icowatchlist.com/public/v1/";
$get= file_get_contents($url);
$decode= json_decode($get, true);
echo $decode['ico']['live']['name'];

when i run it the error does:
Notice: Undefined index: name in C:\wamp64\www...

please can someone tell me what i have done wrong,or what i have to do. what i wanted is to display the datas in tabular manner.
thank you

RE: another json problem.

The ['live'] index is an array of elements. each element then has a ['name'] element inside. But there is no ['name'] index directly under ['live'] so you need to specify which element in the ['live'] array you want the name for.

You would need to do something like: $decode['ico']['live'][x]['name'];

Where "x" is a number between 0 and apparently 277.

If you are unsure of what the structure of the array looks like, its always helpful to print it out entirely in a structured form to be able to see it.

echo "<pre>" . print_r($decode,1) . "</pre>";
