The php/html forms are pretty basic and I have them working quite good. What I would like to do, though, is edit records in a table view (or multi-record view as some programs would call it). Each record would have text boxes, radio buttons and checkboxes and they would all show up in a table view something like this:
Customer1 Description1 o o o o o o    x
Customer2 Description2 o o o o o o    x
Customer3 Description3 o o o o o o    x
Customer4 Description4 o o o o o o    x
(the o's represent radio buttons and the  represent checkboxes and the x's represent delete buttons).
Now I would like to change the radio buttons and checkboxes right in the table without going to another form. If php code would work (and be simpler since I have learned a bit about it already), the records wouldn't have to update in the database immediately - I could have a submit button which would submit all changes at once if necessary. I imagine whatever code I would use, I would need to use arrays of some kind which I am not very familiar with (although I have worked some with them in other programs).
So, is something like this even possible and if so, what programming language would you suggest I learn to make it possible. I don't want to spend hours or days learning a language that I would later find out I had no use for, nor do I want to spend a lot of time figuring out how to edit in tables if that isn't even possible to do.
