Hello

I have a field in my table that is called "template" and i have a form with 3 radio buttons.

When the form is loaded it has to check a radio button depending on the value.
When i submit the form it has to write the value into my table field "template".

The code i try to use looks like:

echo "<input type=radio value=1 name=template ".if ($row[template]==1) echo "checked".">";
echo "<input type=radio value=2 name=template ".if ($row[template]==2) echo "checked".">";
echo "<input type=radio value=3 name=template ".if ($row[template]==3) echo "checked".">";

Why does this not work:

I always get a parse error

Or why not make life easier and change the code to:

for($i = 1; $i < 4; $i++){
  echo "<input type=radio value=$i name=template";
  if($row[template] == $i) echo " checked";
  echo ">";
}
