checking the checkbox in ValueList

Ok, I run a query which outputs some id numbers (variable GetidList).  On the same page I have a form with checkbox beside pictures with id numbers.  What I'm trying to attempt with no luck is checking the checkbox IF that id falls in that ValueList.  So, I have:

<cfquery datasource="dsn" name="Getthumbs">
Select imageid
FROM formnav
</cfquery>

<CFSET GetidList = ValueList(Getthumbs.imageid)>


Any ideas?

<cfoutput query="GetPictures">
  <cfif listFind("#GetidList#", GetPictures.imageid)>
      <cfset theChecked = "checked=\"checked\"">
  <cfelse>
      <cfset theChecked = "">
  </cfif>
  <input type="checkbox" #theChecked#>
</cfquery>

The above code provides a checkbox for each  picture and makes it checked if the imageid is in the list.

<cfif listFind("#GetidList#", GetPictures.imageid) gt 0>

Probably better to do the check this way.

Very cool.  I'm not used to putting cfif tags inside html tags - good idea.

<input type="checkbox" <CFIF listfind(getidlist,imagetocheck)>checked</cfif> >

I added the > to close the input tag to the end.
