Thank you  for your post. If I want to show that I have records in a SQL table at the front end through changing colors on checkbox, how to do that?

After you executed the count SQL you know how many records in your SQL table
if count = 0 then paint your checkbox in one color. If the count > than 0 than paint it to another
