    editing using an html form and php

    I am building a webapp for a development project using mysql and php. I am currently trying to build an editing page. I'm running into a problem pulling checkboxes. I have two sets of them that are used on data entry and I need to pull that info into an editing page. Every thing I have tried either makes them always unchecked or always checked.

    Code:
    <br><input type="checkbox" name="earslot" checked="<? echo $row['earslot']; ?>" /><br>
    That is currently always checked. The value used in the data entry segment = 1 when checked.

    checked="<? echo $row['earslot']; ?>"
    To get a checkbox checked, you need to apply an attribute checked="checked" to that element. If you remove that entire attribute and value, it'll become unchecked.
