Hi all,

This is going to seem a very basic sort of question so here goes....
i have a form with a couple of checkboxs and what i want to do is
echo the selected checkbox. for example;

if checkbox 1 is submitted then an image will be shown in a div underneath the form when it is submitted.
and if option 2 is selected then a differnt image will be shown and so on and so on.
all in the same page without redirecting and so on.

thanks in advance...

Cheers...

Thanks Robbob, thats pretty much on the money. however...

firstly im an idiot, i wanted radio buttons not checkboxes. we wont even go there!

Secondly, could we have it where each radio button has a different outcome? so if 1 is selected img 1 shows if the second button is selected then img 2 is shown...


Thanks again

This seems to work OK, just put your images in a folder under the document root called "rdo" and name your images to be the same as the value of the radio button, just replace the spaces with underscores.
