Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: [php/mysql]php function result inside mysql query, possible?.

    [php/mysql]php function result inside mysql query, possible?.

    Hi ya'll

    I'm wondering if it is possible to make a function that will handle all checkbox values(0 or 1), and that the result of the function will be places inside the query statement.

    The result needs to appear at the place where I call the function.

    So I don’t have to handle all checkboxes individually.
    I have multiple checkboxes in one form so using a global var doesn’t do the trick, although not in this example but I want to reusing the function.

    The function that checks the values is called ‘proc_chkbox’ as in proc(ess) ch(ec)kbox and the column is called ‘art_req_opt_active’


    PHP Code:
    function proc_chkbox($i){
        if(empty(
    $i)){
            echo 
    0;
        }else{
            echo 
    1;
        }
    }
    if(
    $_GET['action'] == 'new'){
    $date date(YmdHis);
        
    echo 
    $_POST['art_req_opt_name'].'<br />';
    echo 
    $_POST['art_req_opt_active'].'<br />';

        
    $qry "INSERT INTO art_req_options (art_req_opt_name, art_req_opt_active, art_req_opt_date) VALUES(
        '"
    .$_POST['art_req_opt_name']."', ".proc_chkbox($_POST['art_req_opt_active']).", $date)"
    Thx in advance

    no probs. you could also use true or false for 1 or 0 which would make the code cleaner

    PHP Code:
    function proc_chkbox($i){ 
        if(empty(
    $i)){ 
            return 
    false
        }else{ 
            return 
    true;
        }
