i have four checkboxes, user have option to select all or any of them as per the nature of complaint. the html code is as follow....

<input type="checkbox" name="comp1" value="Abusive words are used">
<input type="checkbox" name="comp2" value="Attachments are vulgar">
<input type="checkbox" name="comp3" value="Provided links are not valid or open fake website">
<input type="checkbox" name="comp4" value="Provided contents are fake">

now, i want to know which option has been selected by the user, because accordingly i put the option sequence in one column of mysql. i want to store only the values which are not empty or only selected by the user....

any help please that how can it be done in php....

hi
you can give the same name for all check box as per i given here in example

<input type="checkbox" name="comp[]" value="Abusive words are used">
<input type="checkbox" name="comp[]" value="Attachments are vulgar">
<input type="checkbox" name="comp[]" value="Provided links are not valid or open fake website">
<input type="checkbox" name="comp[]" value="Provided contents are fake">

Now you get this value in array which selected by user

$values=$_post['comp'];//$values is an array of selected value by user

Now if you want to find that which value is selected than you can use na is_array() function ok


Thanks

And, to process Tulsa's values, I recommend looking into the implode function.

<?php
if(isset($_POST['comp'])) {
  // Clean data
  $cleanData = array();
  foreach($_POST['comp'] as $_comp) {
    $cleanData = mysql_real_escape_query($_comp);
  }

  // Build query
  $compStr = implode("'), ('", $cleanData);
  $sql = "INSERT INTO tbl('compCol') VALUES('$compStr')";

  // Example query:
  //  INSERT INTO tbl('compCol') VALUES('first'), ('second'), ('third')
}
?>
