How would I go about grabbing the last 7 characters of the string below?

For example:

$dynamicstring = "2490slkj409slk5409els";
$newstring = some_function($dynamicstring);
echo "The new string is: " . $newstring;

Which would display:

The new string is: 5409els



Use substr() with a negative number for the 2nd argument.

$newstring = substr($dynamicstring, -7);

From the php docs:

string substr ( string $string , int $start [, int $length ] )

If start is negative, the returned string will start at the start'th character from the end of string.

You need a Ajax call to pass the JS value into php variable

JS Code will be (your js file)

var jsString="hello";
    url: "ajax.php",
    type: "post",
    data: jsString

And in ajax.php (your php file) code will be

$phpString = $_POST['data'];     // assign hello to phpString

If you're using PDO, use PDO::lastInsertId.

If you're using Mysqli, use mysqli::$insert_id.

If you're still using Mysql:

Please, don't use mysql_* functions in new code. They are no longer maintained and are officially deprecated. See the red box? Learn about prepared statements instead, and use PDO or MySQLi - this article will help you decide which. If you choose PDO, here is a good tutorial.

But if you have to, use mysql_insert_id.

Here's a neat solution:

String upToNCharacters = s.substring(0, Math.min(s.length(), n));

Opinion: while this solution is "neat", I think it is actually less readable than a solution that uses if / else in the obvious way. If the reader hasn't seen this trick, he/she has to think harder to understand the code. IMO, the code's meaning is more obvious in the if / else version. For a cleaner / more readable solution, see @paxdiablo's answer.
