Hi,
try this in your PHP code:
- first move out of the while the echo with <form> definition
- second, the checkbox

 echo "<input type='checkbox' name='chkbox1[]' value = '".$rows['id'] ."' />";
  • third - how make the delete

    if(isset($_POST['delete']))
    {
    $chkbox1 = $_POST[chkbox1];
    }
    foreach($chkbox1 as $del_id)
    {
    $sql = "DELETE FROM register WHERE id='$del_id'";
    $result = mysql_query($sql);
    }
