hi
in my registration page i got about 20 input fields everythings are working fine except this multiple checkboxes. i read the articles related to my isses but no joy yet becouse my code is very complecated for example the register.php datas will be validate and process by process.php and then send to session.php from here data will be adding through database.php, so its very complecated where to add what for that i will give all the page code that related to register.php

here is the register.php

<tr>
<td>Generation/Siblings::</td>
<td>
<p><input type="checkbox" name="generation[]" value="Mother"> Mother</p>
    <p><input type="checkbox" name="generation[]" value="Grand-mother"> Grand mother</p>
    <p><input type="checkbox" name="generation[]" value="Great-grandmother"> Great grandmother</p>
    <p><input type="checkbox" name="generation[]" value="Sisters"> Sisters</p>
    <p><input type="checkbox" name="generation[]" value="Daughters"> Daughters</p>

    If you have 20 checkboxes and these are not going to change (as in loads more), one trick I ran into was using bitwise operators: <input type="checkbox" value="1" name="checkbit[]" id="checkbit1" /> <label for="checkbit1">Check 1</label> <input type="checkbox" value="2" name="checkbit[]" id="checkbit2" /> <label for="checkbit1">Check 2 </label> <input type="checkbox" value="4" name="checkbit[]" id="checkbit3" /> … Read More

    I thought you had 20 checkboxes together. Sorry my mistake. In the case of your html, I probably wouldn't bother with the bitwise stuff, but could still be useful. <input type="checkbox" value="1" name="generation[]" id="generation1" /> <label for="Mother">Mother</label> <input type="checkbox" value="2" name="generation[]" id="generation2" /> <label for="Grand-mother">Grand mother</label> <input type="checkbox" value="4" name="generation[]" … Read More

You have set up your checkbox's as a control array, which means that $_POST['generation'] will itself be an array (not a single value) and must be iterated to find the selected value for insertion in the database. You will need some additional logic to handle this, you can't just pass the array to the SQL.

0

for additional logic do you mean like this in database.php

if(isset($_REQUEST['submit']))
    {

        $checkbox1 = $_POST['generation'];
        $selected_checkbox = "";
        foreach ($checkbox1 as $checkbox1) 
        {
            $selected_checkbox .= $checkbox1 . ", ";
        }
        $selected_checkbox = substr($selected_checkbox, 0, -2);

        $s="insert into <tablename> set
                area_manu='".$selected_checkbox."'";
    }

i tried this but still the inserting value is 0
any idea

If you have 20 checkboxes and these are not going to change (as in loads more), one trick I ran into was using bitwise operators:

<input type="checkbox" value="1" name="checkbit[]" id="checkbit1" /> <label for="checkbit1">Check 1</label>
<input type="checkbox" value="2" name="checkbit[]" id="checkbit2" /> <label for="checkbit1">Check 2 </label>
<input type="checkbox" value="4" name="checkbit[]" id="checkbit3" /> <label for="checkbit1">Check 3</label>
<input type="checkbox" value="8" name="checkbit[]" id="checkbit4" /> <label for="checkbit1">Check 4</label>

(etc) - get php to create these in a loop if they're all together

$total = (isset($_POST['checkbit'])) ? array_sum($_POST['checkbit']) : 0;

THat gives the number you store in the DB.

For retrieval for example you can use - e.g. total now in variable $bitTotal:

if($bitTotal & 64) echo "checkbox #7 checked!"; 

The bitwise operator works in SQL too. SO you can search with it e.g.

SELECT ... FROM ...  WHERE (checkfields & 64)  
Votes + Comments
Interesting usage of bitwise operators

i tryied with the above one but still its shows 0 value in db

i add this line in database.php

$total = (isset($_POST['generation'])) ? array_sum($_POST['generation']) : 0;

I thought you had 20 checkboxes together. Sorry my mistake. In the case of your html, I probably wouldn't bother with the bitwise stuff, but could still be useful.

<input type="checkbox" value="1" name="generation[]" id="generation1" /> <label for="Mother">Mother</label>
<input type="checkbox" value="2" name="generation[]" id="generation2" /> <label for="Grand-mother">Grand mother</label>
<input type="checkbox" value="4" name="generation[]" id="generation3" /> <label for="Great-grandmother">Great grandmother</label>
<input type="checkbox" value="8" name="generation[]" id="generation4" /> <label for="Sisters">Sisters</label>
<input type="checkbox" value="16" name="generation[]" id="generation5" /> <label for="Daughters">Daughters</label>

The 'for' attribute needs to be equal to the id of the control it's referring to, e.g. 'generation1' or 'generation5', etc. Alternatively, you could do something like this:

<input type="checkbox" value="1" name="generation[]" id="mother" /> <label for="mother">Mother</label>
<input type="checkbox" value="2" name="generation[]" id="grandmother" /> <label for="grandmother">Grand mother</label>
<input type="checkbox" value="4" name="generation[]" id="greatgrandmother" /> <label for="greatgrandmother">Great grandmother</label>
<input type="checkbox" value="8" name="generation[]" id="sisters" /> <label for="sisters">Sisters</label>
<input type="checkbox" value="16" name="generation[]" id="daughters" /> <label for="daughters">Daughters</label>

With processing...

$total = (isset($_POST['generation'])) ? array_sum($_POST['generation']) : 0;

Maybe this would be better:

<input type="checkbox" name="generation[1]" id="mother" /> <label for="mother">Mother</label>
<input type="checkbox" name="generation[2]" id="grandmother" /> <label for="grandmother">Grand mother</label>
<input type="checkbox" name="generation[4]" id="greatgrandmother" /> <label for="greatgrandmother">Great grandmother</label>
<input type="checkbox" name="generation[8]" id="sisters" /> <label for="sisters">Sisters</label>
<input type="checkbox" name="generation[16]" id="daughters" /> <label for="daughters">Daughters</label>

And then...

$total = (isset($_POST['generation'])) ? array_sum(array_keys($_POST['generation'])) : 0;

In order to retrieve this for profile pages or db searches:

Let us assume mother, greatgrandmother and daughters = 1 + 4 + 16 = 21

Store this as 21 in the DB - int field (IMPT!!)

Oh, BTW while I remember, this method only works for up to 32 checkboxes in the array on 32-bit server. You should be OK though, :)

function checkMe($total,$checkValue)
{
    if((int)$total & (int)$checkValue) echo ' checked="checked";
}

So this could be...

<input type="checkbox" name="generation[1]" id="mother" <?php checkMe($total,1);?> /> <label for="mother">Mother</label>
    <input type="checkbox" name="generation[2]" id="grandmother" <?php checkMe($total,2);?> /> <label for="grandmother">Grand mother</label>
    <input type="checkbox" name="generation[4]" id="greatgrandmother" <?php checkMe($total,4);?> /> <label for="greatgrandmother">Great grandmother</label>
    <input type="checkbox" name="generation[8]" id="sisters" <?php checkMe($total,8);?> /> <label for="sisters">Sisters</label>
    <input type="checkbox" name="generation[16]" id="daughters" <?php checkMe($total,16);?> /> <label for="daughters">Daughters</label>

You'll probably find that you'll get an error on page load as $total isn't defined. In that case, just place a

$total = 0;

Before your form processing code. Ideally you'd build this into your form handling class.

Just an idea. Don't waste too much time on it.

thank you for your reply and help
but still no joy, i made the changes on register.php and add following code into database.php still the filed value is 0 in the database

$total = (isset($_POST['generation'])) ? array_sum($_POST['generation']) : 0;

any idea?

have you tried echoing various variables to see what they hold, e.g.

$x = (array) $_POST['generation']';
print_r($x);

@devarmagan,

!Warning! Script below is not tested. However, I am confident that it will help you isolate the problems you are having. If I don't over parenthesized or missed some semi-colons it should work as I intended it to be.

jUst a simple suggestion, why not test checkboxes in one page, to see how the recommended codes work..

For example, per Diafol's recommendation

 ? array_sum($_POST['generation']) : 0;

should work, but if you don't check if the POST is set (the entire form), then you will probably ended up 0..

Here is tester code that I think might work. Save this on a single php page called tester.php

<?php
    echo '<h4>Form submission Results</h4>';

    if(isset($_POST['submit'])&& (!empty($_POST['generation']))){

    echo 'Test One:  Array Sum Generation:  '.array_sum($_POST['generation']).'<br/> Test Two: ';

    print_r($_POST['generation']);
    }
    echo '<br/>';
    echo 'Test Three: '.(($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']== 'POST')?((!empty($_POST['generation'])?array_sum($_POST['generation']) : 0 ))  :'Checkbox is empty');

    ?>
    <form method="post" action="">

    <input type="checkbox" value="1" name="generation[]" id="mother" /> <label for="mother">Mother</label>
    <br/>
    <input type="checkbox" value="2" name="generation[]" id="grandmother" /> <label for="grandmother">Grand mother</label>
    <br/>
    <input type="checkbox" value="4" name="generation[]" id="greatgrandmother" /> <label for="greatgrandmother">Great grandmother</label>
    <br/>
    <input type="checkbox" value="8" name="generation[]" id="sisters" /> <label for="sisters">Sisters</label>
    <br/>
    <input type="checkbox" value="16" name="generation[]" id="daughters" /> <label for="daughters">Daughters</label>
    <br/>
    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit">
    </form>

Although I haven't tested the codes above, I highly favor the result coming out from test two and three. If you want more testing procedures, please let us know.

The purpose of the script is to approximate the sum of the value submitted as proposed by Diafol. It is highly recommended to convert them into interger, before storing into the database.

have you tried echoing various variables to see what they hold, e.g.

i have changed the register.php and add the following code into database.php

$total = (isset($_POST['generation'])) ? array_sum($_POST['generation']) : 0;

thats it
i check the results in phpmyadmin after adding the new user.

0

Have you done a print_r($_POST['generation']) as we've suggested?

0

if i am right this print_r($_POST['generation']) is to pull out the data from table right?

here is the code i am using to pull the data from table

<td><?php
if($form->value("generation") == ""){
   echo $req_user_info['generation'];
}
?>
0

No not out the table - from the form!

0

ok then i add this line

$total = (isset($_POST['generation'])) ? array_sum($_POST['generation']) : 0;

in process.php
something around here

/**
    * procRegister - Processes the user submitted registration form,
    * if errors are found, the user is redirected to correct the
    * information, if not, the user is effectively registered with
    * the system and an email is (optionally) sent to the newly
    * created user.
    */
   function procRegister(){
      global $database, $session, $form;
      $config = $database->getConfigs();
**--->**     ** $total = (isset($_POST['generation'])) ? array_sum($_POST['generation']) : 0; <-----**

      /* Checks if registration is disabled */
      if($config['ACCOUNT_ACTIVATION'] == 4){
        $_SESSION['reguname'] = $_POST['user'];
        $_SESSION['regsuccess'] = 6;
        header("Location: ".$session->referrer);
      }

but still no joy
any solution

0

NO, the $total is lost in function scope as the function doesn't return anything. I may be wrong though - is there any more to this function?

OK... so what do you want to do next?...

Where do the other fields in your form get processed? Like 'status' and 'maidenname'?
