I have an asp page that shows the results of a table query for orders.  One of the fields 'completed'  is a YES/NO checkbox or could be a text box.  I would like to be able to show it in the results as a checkbox  either checked or unchecked depending on what the value is from the table, and then from the asp results page be able to go through my list of orders and select which ones are completed and submit them all at once to change the completed status.  Please include sample code.

Thanks

Okay, I understand what you need and I have some sample code for you to test out.

First thing I need to know is do you desire this to happen on one page or can you display the results and then submit the form to another page?

Second, how are you getting to the page displaying then information? and does your query displaying the results limit the records returned, for example are you displaying information for just this month?

I have a working sample for you to view. Go to this site and test it out. There is only data available in Jan-Aug so feel free to play as much as you like.

You can download the two pages from the first page.

is there a way to make it so that if you uncheck it it will change the value back?

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Could we have 2 check boxes that would each control a different field?

We could certainly have two boxes - a complete or not complete box. Changing the value back is somewhat difficult because you would not be able to pass a value on a box that is not checked.

I think the best in this case would be to use radio buttons. The buttons would be with comp or not comp. You could then have this pass the value of the radio button to the database and it would always update all of the records displayed because you are always returning a specific state.

I love the way EE works -- you answer a question and there is always three more to follow :-). I learned most of what I know by asking questions in EE. Let me know what you think about the radio buttons and I will see if I can put something together.

appreciated the code.

Okay go back to the site and check out the radio button options. You will see that where you select yes it changes the values to 100 and if you select No it changes the values to 200. This will work for you to set the information to complete or not complete.

Pay attention to the If statement inside the form that sets the values of the checked radio button.
