View Full Version : form variables

12-24-2003, 04:40 PM
On page A i have a list of items with checkboxes, each with unique names.

when i press the submit button, what I want is to have the following page list off what has been checked.

Is there a way for page "b" to list all the checked off variables and ignore the unchecked variables, without actually typing out an individual command for each item?

nevermind. I've decided to go about it a different way...


actually though, if anyone has an answer, it would still be nice to know for days to come.

You can loop through the post-collection like this

foreach ($_POST as $varName => $value){
echo ($varName . " = " . $value);

This will print all formfield-names and there values
But this also includes the submitbutton etc.

If you only want the checkboxes, then you best give them all a name that start with the same x-letters (+ maybe the same value, although that isn't necessary). Like "del" or so, and then you can so something like

foreach ($_POST as $varName => $value){
if ((substr($varName,0,3) == 'del') and ($value=='1')) {
echo ($varName . " = " . $value);
