Hi guys... ive been cracking my brains out trying to make this line of code to be in this format

{'title': 'Item 1'},
{'title': 'Folder 2', 'isFolder': true, 'key': 'folder2',
   'children': {
      'title': 'Sub-item 2.1'
    },{
      'title': 'Sub-item 2.2'
    }
},
{'title': 'Folder 3', 'isFolder': true, 'key': 'folder3',
   'children': {
       'title': 'Sub-item 3.1'
    },{
       'title': 'Sub-item 3.2'
    }
 },
{'title': 'Item 5'}


so basically i want this to be return in php what i mean is what will it look like in a php format before converting it using json_encode?

i was thinking of something like this
<?php 
 $array= array(
    'title' => 'folder1',
  /* i dont know what comes next... please help guys... */
 );

?>

Hi
I guess it's best to show some example code
PHP
$a = array();
echo json_encode($a), "\n";
echo json_encode($a, JSON_FORCE_OBJECT), "\n\n";

$a = array(1,2,3,4,5,6,7);
echo json_encode($a), "\n";
echo json_encode($a, JSON_FORCE_OBJECT), "\n\n";

$a = array(array(1,2,3),array(5,6,7));
echo json_encode($a), "\n";
echo json_encode($a, JSON_FORCE_OBJECT), "\n\n";

$a = array(array("firstname" => "John","lastname" => "Doe","age"=>42 ),array("firstname" => "Jane","lastname" => "Doe","age"=>42 ));
echo json_encode($a), "\n";
echo json_encode($a, JSON_FORCE_OBJECT), "\n\n";
?>

This code results in:
[]
{}

[1,2,3,4,5,6,7]
{"0":1,"1":2,"2":3,"3":4,"4":5,"5":6,"6":7}

[[1,2,3],[5,6,7]]
{"0":{"0":1,"1":2,"2":3},"1":{"0":5,"1":6,"2":7}}

[{"firstname":"John","lastname":"Doe","age":42},{"firstname":"Jane","lastname":"Doe","age":42}]
{"0":{"firstname":"John","lastname":"Doe","age":42},"1":{"firstname":"Jane","lastname":"Doe","age":42}}


Hope this helps

regards
Michel
