Notas

Dica

There are several ways to provide this functionality for versions prior to PHP 7.3.0. It is possible to use array_keys(), but that may be rather inefficient. It is also possible to use reset() and key(), but that may change the internal array pointer. An efficient solution, which does not change the internal array pointer, written as polyfill:

<?php
if (!function_exists('array_key_first')) {
    function 
array_key_first(array $arr) {
        foreach(
$arr as $key => $unused) {
            return 
$key;
        }
        return 
NULL;
    }
}
?>

A proper one-liner polyfill for version < 7.3:

<?php
function array_key_first((array) $a)
{
    return
array_keys($a)[0];
}

Another way to get first array key with PHP older than 7.3.

<?php

$array
= ['one', 'two', 'three'];
$array2 = ['one' => 'Number one', 'two' => 'Number two'];

reset($array);// go to first array
echo key($array);// get its key (first array)
// expect 0.

reset($array2);
echo
key($array2);
// expect one.

One-liner polyfill (php version < 7.3.0)

<?php
function array_key_first(array $array)
{
    return
key(array_slice($array, 0, 1));
}
