Is this even possible?

I was trying to figure out the best way to do this
I have a mysql table (members) which has a display record which is boolean data type (0 is no, 1 is yes),
I created a delete button for each member

Each row is generated using

    echo "<tr>";
    echo "<td><img src='".$row['image']."'></td>\
    echo "<td>".$row['name']."</td>\
    echo "<td>".$row['email']."</td>\
    echo "<td>".date("m/d/Y",strtotime($row['created']));
    echo "<span class='pull-right'><a href='edit_user.php?id=".$row['id']."' class='btn btn-warning btn-xs glyphicon glyphicon-pencil' role='button'></a>\
	echo "&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;";
// Button trigger modal 
	echo "<a href='#' role='button' class='btn btn-danger btn-xs glyphicon glyphicon-trash' data-toggle='modal' data-target='#myModal'>";
  	echo "</a></td>\
    echo "</tr>\

When i click the delete icon, a modal pops up asking me to confirm

Im trying to use PHP to put values (name) into the modal so I can be positive as to who I am deleting.
How do I carry those variables into the modal?

This is a CSS modal box setup. Rather than a Javascript confirm type popup, any data can be put in the modal. In this sample page I put the name and a form to POST delete with the user id. Not thrilled about putting the modal within a new table row but it is what it is. You can configure as you wish.

//Test Post
	echo "<pre>";
	echo "</pre>";
<title>modal box</title>
<style type="text/css">
.modalDialog {
	position: fixed;
	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

.close:hover { background: #00d9ff; }
//Page name
$page = "?";
//Sample data to replace query results for test
$data = array(
	0 => array(

echo "<table>";
//sample loop
foreach($data as $k => $row):
	echo "<tr>";
		echo "<td><img src='".$row['image']."'></td>\
		echo "<td>".$row['name']."</td>\
		echo "<td>".$row['email']."</td>\
		echo "<td>".date("m/d/Y",strtotime($row['created']))."</td>\
		echo "<td><a href='#openModal".$k."'>Delete</a></td>\
	echo "</tr>\
	//Build Modal box
	echo '<tr>
	<div id="openModal'.$k.'" class="modalDialog">
		<a href="#close" title="Close" class="close">X</a>
		<h2>Delete Confirmation</h2>
		<p>Are you sure you wish to delete '.$row['name'].' from the records?</p>
		<form action="'.$page.'" method="post">

		<input type="submit" name="delete" value="Delete" />
echo "</table>";

If you built a data array with your query result instead of looping it to build your table, you could loop through this data array for the table and a separate loop for the modal div loop.

thanks, thats exactly what I was trying to do…

I do think you should build that data array so you can build the modal div in a separate loop. I believe it could be built something like this.

$data = array();
while($row = $query->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC)){
	$data[$row['id']]['id']      = $row['id'];
	$data[$row['id']]['image']   = $row['image'];
	$data[$row['id']]['name']    = $row['name'];
	$data[$row['id']]['email']   = $row['email'];
	$data[$row['id']]['created'] = $row['created'];
