Depending on how you're sending the form you might want something like this:
$checkbox1 = $_POST['name of checkbox1'];
if (isset($checkbox1))
{
  //do something for checkbox1
}

Open in new window

Then repeat for each box.

Is that what you're looking for?

Probably, if you want to store the checkbox values in an array you could do something like that.

$checkbox[0] = $_POST['input name of checkbox'];
$checkbox[1] = $_POST['input name of checkbox'];
...
for($i = 0; $i < count($checkbox); $i++)
{
  if (isset($checkbox[$i]))
  {
    //do something
  }
}

Open in new window


That would do that same thing for each checkbox.  If you want to do something different for each one, you could take it out of the for-loop.

Does that help?
