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.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: PHP: if checkbox checked...

    PHP: if checkbox checked...

    Hi. I'm making a website that includes a form, and I kind of hit a bump with the php.
    Code:
    PHP:
    {for($i=0; $i<22; $i++)
        {if($_POST["Navs".$i]=='ON')
         {$message.=$i.", ";}}
     
    HTML:
    <tr><td width="425"><input type="checkbox" id="Navs0" onClick="Cont_pag5_3()"><img name="But_nav" src="buttons/a_la_carte_p1.jpg" onMouseOver="Nav_but(0, 0)" onMouseOut="Nav_but(1, 0)" onMouseDown="Nav_but(2, 0)" onMouseUp="Nav_but(0, 0)"></td>
    <td width="425"><input type="checkbox" id="Navs1" onClick="Cont_pag5_3()"><img name="But_nav" src="buttons/artemis_p1.jpg" onMouseOver="Nav_but(0, 1)" onMouseOut="Nav_but(1, 1)" onMouseDown="Nav_but(2, 1)" onMouseUp="Nav_but(0, 1)"></td></tr>
    <tr><td width="425"><input type="checkbox" id="Navs2" onClick="Cont_pag5_3()"><img name="But_nav" src="buttons/aura_p1.jpg" onMouseOver="Nav_but(0, 2)" onMouseOut="Nav_but(1, 2)" onMouseDown="Nav_but(2, 2)" onMouseUp="Nav_but(0, 2)"></td>
    <td width="425"><input type="checkbox" id="Navs3" onClick="Cont_pag5_3()"><img name="But_nav" src="buttons/avail_p1.jpg" onMouseOver="Nav_but(0, 3)" onMouseOut="Nav_but(1, 3)" onMouseDown="Nav_but(2, 3)" onMouseUp="Nav_but(0, 3)"></td></tr>
    ETC to Navs21
    The problem is that the php doesn't "see" if the checkboxes ar checked or not, so that part of $message remains empty...What am I doing wrong? Thank you in advance. Bye.

    You're handling them wrong. When you're trying to grab data from a post it pulls it by the name attribute NOT the id attribute

    Don't PM me your CSS, xHTML, JS or PHP questions. I will not reply to ANY IE6 questions.
