Insert Value of one checkbox into MySQL

Simple and easy for you guys and gals I'm sure.

I have a form. I have a checkbox that if it is checked a hidden <div> is displayed with additional form fields. If the user unchecks it, the <div> hides and the form fields are not accessible.

When I fill in the form and leave the checkbox unchecked, it gives me the error, "
Notice: Undefined index: location_have_address in C:\wamp\www\sha2\members\add_game.php on line 57".

I believe this is because the checkbox doesn't have a value when writing to the DB since it was not checked.

In my DB, I am storing the value of the checkbox as 0 or 1. The datatype in the DB is TINYINT.

This checkbox is not required and if left unchecked, needs to write '0' in the DB. I would rather not use a radio button as the user would have to refresh the page should they click on it by accident.

How can I accomplish this?

The form input code for this is below with the hidden div below it.

BUT the error occurs while setting the POST variables after checking if(isset($_POST['submit'])) {.....}

Any ideas?

You can use the function isset() to check the value is exists or not. If 'location_have_address' not exists in $_POST, just use '0' instead.
$location_have_address = mysql_real_escape_string(isset($_POST['location_have_address']) ? $_POST['location_have_address'] : '0');

Are you missing "}" at the end of your code? or can you post the error message?
 if(isset($_POST['submit'])) {

Hi yauhing

Just tested your code out and it works perfectly! Both states (checked with additional fields and not checked) write to the DB without error now.

Was it not working because the value of that variable was not set yet?

Thanks so much :)
