Checkboxes

Hi,

I have an update page, so, on that page I have a list of checkboxes.  I need to check the checkboses that are checked.


this is what I have so far.

<cfquery name="Select_DB" datasource="#dsn#" username="#dbID#" password="#dbPassword#">
		Select DBID as DID, DBName as DName
		From AppDatabase
        order by DBName ASC
	</cfquery>


Note: the output value for AppInformation.DBID is this: 4,3,7,1,6,10,5,2 


<cfset checkedList = "">

<cfloop index="kk" list="#valueList(AppInformation.DBID)#">
 <cfif listFind(checkedList,kk) eq 0> 
     <cfset checkedList = listAppend(checkedList,kk)>
 </cfif> 
</cfloop>


                       <cfloop index = "i" list = #checkedList#> 
                       <cfoutput query="Select_DB">
                       <cfdump var="#Select_DB.DID#">
                         <cfif #i# eq #Select_DB.DID#>
                         	<cfinput type="checkbox" checked="yes" name="Insert_DB" value="#Select_DB.DID#"><cfoutput>11111 - #Select_DB.DID#</cfoutput> <br>
                         <cfelse>
                    		<cfinput type="checkbox" checked="No" name="Insert_DB" value="#Select_DB.DID#"><cfoutput>22222 - #Select_DB.DID#</cfoutput> <br>
                         </cfif>
                         </cfoutput>
                       </cfloop>

I think you could use this for the CFIF, just check to see if the checkbox's value in on the list of all the checked IDs...

                         <cfif listFind(valueList(AppInformation.DBID),Select_DB.DID)>


like this..

                         <cfif listFind(valueList(AppInformation.DBID),Select_DB.DID)>
                               <cfinput type="checkbox" checked="yes" name="Insert_DB" value="#Select_DB.DID#"><cfoutput>11111 - #Select_DB.DID#</cfoutput> <br>
                         <cfelse>
                                <cfinput type="checkbox" checked="No" name="Insert_DB" value="#Select_DB.DID#"><cfoutput>22222 - #Select_DB.DID#</cfoutput> <br>
                         </cfif>

Sorry, I don't think I included all the code.

Here it is again, I also added the variable "checkedList"  only so that valueList() would not have to be processed again and again in every loop...


                       <cfset checkedList = valueList(AppInformation.DBID)>
                       <cfoutput query="Select_DB">
                         <cfif listFind(checkedList,Select_DB.DID)>
                         	<cfinput type="checkbox" checked="yes" name="Insert_DB" value="#Select_DB.DID#"><cfoutput>11111 - #Select_DB.DID#</cfoutput> <br>
                         <cfelse>
                    		<cfinput type="checkbox" checked="No" name="Insert_DB" value="#Select_DB.DID#"><cfoutput>22222 - #Select_DB.DID#</cfoutput> <br>
                         </cfif>
                       </cfoutput>

This works but I need to put the name how can I do this :

     	<cfset checkedList = valueList(AppInformation.DBID)>
      	<cfset checkList = valueList(Select_DB.DID)>   // How can I put the name "Select_DB.DName"
        
    	<cfloop index="i" list="#checkList#"> 
   			<cfif listFind(checkedList,i)>
     			<cfinput type="checkbox" checked="yes" name="Insert_DB" value="#i#"><cfoutput>11111 - #Select_DB.DName#</cfoutput><br>
     		<cfelse>
       			<cfinput type="checkbox" checked="no" name="Insert_DB" value="#i#"><cfoutput>222 - #Select_DB.DName#</cfoutput><br>
	   		</cfif>
		</cfloop>

Ok, something is off.  I might have made a wrong assumption.

1.  The query SELECT_DB is a list of *ALL*   "DB_names"  
2.  Which DB_names are already checked is found in a query called "AppInformation"  (this query is not included in your posts).

If those two things are true, then you shouldbe able to do this..

    <cfquery name="Select_DB" datasource="#dsn#" username="#dbID#" password="#dbPassword#">
		Select DBID as DID, DBName as DName
		From AppDatabase
        order by DBName ASC
	</cfquery>

    <cfset checkedList = valueList(AppInformation.DBID)>
    <cfoutput query="Select_DB">
      <cfif listFind(checkedList,Select_DB.DID)>
      	<cfinput type="checkbox" checked="yes" name="Insert_DB" value="#Select_DB.DID#"><cfoutput>11111 - #Select_DB.DID#</cfoutput> <br>
      <cfelse>
 		<cfinput type="checkbox" checked="No" name="Insert_DB" value="#Select_DB.DID#"><cfoutput>22222 - #Select_DB.DID#</cfoutput> <br>
      </cfif>
    </cfoutput>

You should see only one checkbox for every DB Name.

You could simplify your code by use of ListContains. This returns 0 if not found in a list.


<cfoutput query="Select_DB">
            <cfinput type="checkbox" checked="#ListContains(checkedList,Select_DB.DID)#" name="Insert_DB" value="#Select_DB.DID#">11111 - #Select_DB.DID#<br/>
</cfoutput>



You may find following working example useful:

<cfset entity = QueryNew ("entityid, entity","integer,varchar")/>
<cfset tt=QueryAddRow(entity,1 )/>
<cfset tt=QuerySetCell (entity, "entityid", 1)/>
<cfset tt=QuerySetCell (entity, "entity", "entity 1")/>
<cfset tt=QueryAddRow(entity,1 )/>
<cfset tt=QuerySetCell (entity, "entityid", 2)/>
<cfset tt=QuerySetCell (entity, "entity", "entity 2")/>
<cfset tt=QueryAddRow(entity,1 )/>
<cfset tt=QuerySetCell (entity, "entityid", 3)/>
<cfset tt=QuerySetCell (entity, "entity", "entity 3")/>
<cfset tt=QueryAddRow(entity,1 )/>
<cfset tt=QuerySetCell (entity, "entityid", 4)/>
<cfset tt=QuerySetCell (entity, "entity", "entity 4")/>
<cfdump var="#entity#"/>
<cfset checkedList = "1,3,4"/>
<cfform name="f1">
      <cfoutput query="entity">
            <br/><cfinput type="checkbox" name="mychk" checked="#ListContains(checkedList,entityid)#" value="#entityid#">#entity#</cfinput>
      </cfoutput>
</cfform>
