Hello,

I have a ColdFusion form and SQL Database.   It's working fine. So when the user login, i'm able to display his data from the table into a textarea but I wasn't able to display the radio button checked and checkbox button checked.

so let start with the radio button and I will post another question for the checkbox.

reading_yes --> My form, when i load my form into my browser it show "YES" instead of the button checked
                                    (X) yes ( )no

This is the code.

 <td colspan="2" height="5" width="100%"><cfoutput>#DisplayCVIToolvolunteer.contactme#<cfinput type="radio" name="contactMe" id="contactMeYes" value="Yes" required="true" message="Question 1: This field is required. Please select yes or no. Please try again." onClick="checkme(this);" />
                &nbsp;
                <label for="ContactMeYes">Yes</label>
                <cfinput type="radio" name="contactMe" id="contactMeNo" value="No" onClick="checkme(this);" />
                No
                </label>
                &nbsp;&nbsp;<br>
                <div id="specify" style="display:none;">
                  <label>Please specify:
                    <input type="text" name="ContactMeSpecify" id="ContactMeSpecify" value="" maxlength="255" size="30" style="width: 200px;border:red 1px solid;">
                  </label>
                  <p id="error" style="color:red;display:none;">Required input! Or else... click "No" above...</p>
                </div></cfoutput></td>

Use cfinput's "checked" attribute:

<cfinput type="radio" name="contactMe" value="Yes"
      checked="#DisplayCVIToolvolunteer.contactme eq 'Yes'#" ..../>  Yes
<cfinput type="radio" name="contactMe" value="No"
      checked="#DisplayCVIToolvolunteer.contactme eq 'no'#" ..../>  No

> The contactme field char10, not null

The only values in that column are "YES" or "NO", right?  

It could be that it's a CHAR field.  That'll add extra spaces to the query value.  Try trimming the value first:

<cfset trimmedValue = trim(DisplayCVIToolvolunteer.contactme)>
<cfoutput>
Debug:  #trimmedValue#  Length = #len(trimmedValue)#<br>
</cfoutput>
<cfinput type="radio" name="contactMe" value="Yes"
      checked="#trimmedValue eq 'Yes'#" ..../>  Yes
<cfinput type="radio" name="contactMe" value="No"
      checked="#trimmedValue eq 'no'#" ..../>  No


BTW: CHAR is a good choice when the values are always the same fixed size. For example, for storing UUID's. If the value lengths can vary, VARCHAR is usually a better choice.
