I tripped on this one.
I have an HTML form that has all kinds of input elements - text, textarea, radio buttons and checkboxes.
I have no problem inserting or updating data in MySQL DB from the HTML form.
But when I want to display what is already in the DB back on my HTML form, it displays the data that is in text and textarea, but not in radio buttons and checkboxes.

Please advise.

while displaying the details, u can check the value stored in ur DB against ur checkbox or radio button and when a match occurs just set the attribute as checked="yes"
if u are unable to do this, paste ur code here..
