error on a specific line ...

When I run this code I keep getting a syntax error, can someone let me know what the issue could be?

echo       '<input type="radio" name="status" value="1" id="status_1"'.if($row['visit_status'] == '1'){echo 'checked';}.'/>Complete</label>';

The error message I get is:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_IF in C:\xampp\htdocs\module_p\editSchedule.php on line 78

Thanks for the help.

Unexpected in a PHP parse error means that something is wrong up the script above the line number location of the of the parse error.  Maybe the error is in the same line or a line above it.

Maybe try changing the dot to a semi-colon.

I would probably code it this way.
<?php // RAY_temp_aej1973.php

$x = '<input type="radio" name="status" value="1" id="status_1"';
if($row['visit_status'] == '1')
{
    $x .= ' checked';
}
$x .= '/>Complete</label>';
echo $x;
