View Full Version : checkbox trouble

05-08-2006, 10:59 AM

I'm having trouble getting a set of checkboxes to hide/show some hidden info...

if there is more than 1 checkbox ticked, nothing will turn off again??!!!!

Any ideas what i need to do to cure this problem

Here's the source code (http://www.standardcraze.co.uk/test.htm)

you gave some of your checkboxes the same name. Do you really need those names to be like that? You might get trouble when sending to the server. Can't u use something like this?

<input type="checkbox" name="group1_1" onclick="rev(0)">a) group1<br>
<input type="checkbox" name="group1_2" onclick="rev(0)">b) group1<br>
<input type="checkbox" name="group1_3" onclick="rev(0)">c) group1<br><br>

<input type="checkbox" name="group2_1" onclick="rev(1)">a) group2<br>
<input type="checkbox" name="group2_2" onclick="rev(1)">b) group2<br>
<input type="checkbox" name="group2_3" onclick="rev(1)">c) group2<br><br>

<input type="checkbox" name="group3_1" onclick="rev(2)">a) group3<br>
<input type="checkbox" name="group3_2" onclick="rev(2)">b) group3<br>

<input type="checkbox" checked name="group3_3" onclick="rev(2)">c) group3<br><br>

If so I might rebuild your code

sorry, yes, i had changed the names once... i must have reverted back to an old version though.

I've updated the file now... if you could help me with my code, that would be great.
