}

$res=mysql_query($str);
if($res)
 echo 'Success';
else
 echo 'Failure';

mysql_close($con);
?>

and this the error am getting:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FOREACH in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\exphp\Events\Myevents\user.php on line 6
what shall i do to slove this?

I think for multiple check boxes insert, you have to coding like this in your php file

$c=$_REQUEST;

for($i=0;$i<count($c);$i++)
{
$val=$c[$i];
$sql="INSERT INTO eventdesc(show) VALUES($val);
$res=mysql_query($sql);
}

By this coding,you can insert all check boxes values in your DB which are checked.

<?php 
include("conn.php");
include("session.php");

Try with for loop like

for($i=0;$i<count($_POST["chkbx"]);$i++)
{
 "INSERT INTO eventdesc(show) VALUES
('".$_POST["chkbx"][$i]."'); 

$res=mysql_query($str);
if($res)
 echo 'Success';
else
 echo 'Failure';
}
mysql_close($con);

in this way it will work.

Will your method append so that all checkbox values are in one field or do you have to have a separate field for each checkbox in your database?
