Multiple Checkbox help

Recommended Posts

I have a set of checkbox as below

* Soft Drink
* Cold Drink
* Mineral Water
* None

<code>
<input type="checkbox" name="chkFolder1" value="001">Soft Drink
<input type="checkbox" name="chkFolder2" value="002">Cold Drink
<input type="checkbox" name="chkFolder3" value="003">Mineral Water
<input type="checkbox" name="chkFolder4" value="004">None
</code>

User allow to select multiple choice from the set of checkbox, for eg, user select soft drink and mineral water, these 2 items will be saved into a database, as (001,003) in a same field called choice.

when i retrive from database, how should i separate the data from choice so that soft drink and mineral water is checked when i retrive the data?

thanks

More information is really needed to answer this question.  To make checkboxes checked, just add 'checked' at the end of the checkbox tags, e.g.

<input type="checkbox" name="chkFolder1" value="001" checked>Soft Drink
<input type="checkbox" name="chkFolder2" value="002">Cold Drink
<input type="checkbox" name="chkFolder3" value="003" checked>Mineral Water
<input type="checkbox" name="chkFolder4" value="004">None


This can be achieved in a variety of ways from the database.
