PHP - Checking an Empty Array

To check whether an array is empty or not, we can use a built-in function empty(), in other cases where we want to check if a given variable is empty or not, it can also be used. It returns a Boolean response based on the condition that if the given variable contains a non-empty, non-zero value then it returns "false" otherwise, it returns "true".

Syntax

Below is the syntax of the empty() method:

empty ($array);

PHP code to check if an array is empty or not

<?php
// array declaration
$array1 = array("hello", "world");
$array2 = array();

//checking whether arrays are empty or not
if (empty($array1)) {
    echo "array1 is empty<br>";
} else {
    echo "array1 is not empty<br>";
}

if (empty($array2)) {
    echo "array2 is empty<br>";
} else {
    echo "array2 is not empty<br>";
}
?>
