View Full Version : Checkboxes and Forms

02-27-2003, 09:51 PM
I have X forms in a page.

Next to each form, I have a checkbox (not assigned to any forum...).
I want some how to submit the values of those un-assigned checkbox to a page...

The problem is that I can't wrap everything with one form tag because it'll mess up all of the X forms.

I think I didn't make it clear enough, so i'll give an example:
In free-email providers (hotmail,yahoo) you have an option in the Inbox, to select all the messages and to do some action on them (mark as read, delete, etc) - in that case, we have one form!

In MY case, I have an option to edit those messages names (input type=text), so each message is a form by itself.
How, in my case, can I keep the checkboxes (in order to later allow to delete selected)?

Thanks for help...

You shouldn't have that many forms, that list should be one form. Whomever is doing your server-side programming dropped the ball here.

Each form suppose to update 1 message.
I have 50 messages in page and I can't update all of them in one time. So I made a form for each of the messages.
Any idea for my question?
