Email form with checkboxes

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to make an email form where the addresses are stored in a database. I want to be able to display all the addresses at the top of a form and the user be able to check the people he/she wants to send a message to. I know how to display all the addresses, but how do I code it so that the scipt checks if a person is to receive the msg or not? I've attached the form code so you get sort of an idea of what it would look like.

<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="">
<table width="500" border="0">
<tr>
<td><input type="checkbox" name="checkbox" value="checkbox" />
Person 1 </td>
<td>Email address </td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td> <input type="checkbox" name="checkbox2" value="checkbox" />
Person 2 </td>
<td>Email address </td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><input type="checkbox" name="checkbox3" value="checkbox" />
Person 3 </td>
<td>Email address </td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Subject</td>
<td><input type="text" name="textfield" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>From</td>
<td><input type="text" name="textfield2" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Return Email address </td>
<td><input type="text" name="textfield3" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Message</td>
<td><textarea name="textarea" cols="30" rows="10"></textarea></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><div align="right">
<input type="reset" name="Submit2" value="Reset" />
</div></td>
<td><input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit" /></td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>

try this

[code]
$getemail=mysql_query("select * from your_table");
while($getemail2=mysql_fetch_array($getemail)){
echo "<input type=checkbox name=$getemail2[your_column]> $getemail2[your_column]";
}
[/code]
that should display all the email addres in your database and set the value of the checkbox change your_table and your_column to the correct database names and you only need the one line of code and it will pull all of the email addresses
