Javascript issue

It winds up putting in qs (the query string being passed) EVERY checkbox element on the form; I only want the UNCHECKED ones.

I suspect the code if (! en.checked) is in error.

How can I fix this?

Looks like you are setting your en variable equal to the name of the checkbox instead of the checkbox itself.  Try changing your if statement to check e.checked instead of en.checked.

function chk_vals() {
				if (ac == "m") {
					 window.location = "admin_menu.php";
					 return false
				}
				ne = document.st.elements.length;
				qs = "";
				for (i = 0; i < ne; i++) {
					e = document.st.elements[i];
					if (e.type == "checkbox") {
						en = e.name;
						if (!e.checked) {
							if (qs == "") {
								qs = "?" + en + "=u";
							} else {
								qs = qs + "&" + en + "=u";
							}
						}
					}
				}		
				if (ac == "a") {
					document.st.action = "updt_base_citylinks.php" + qs;
					 return true;
				}	

Open in new window
