Radio Buttons insert values to DB but are not marked on update form

Radio Buttons insert values to DB but are not marked on update form

I have a simple radio group on an update form that allows people to specify their preferred method of contact, Phone or Cell.

The buttons insert the correct values Phone or Cell into the database, but when going back to the update form, the values are not marked.

So if a user updates the form without clicking one of the buttons again, the initial selection is removed from the db.

I bound the radio group to the table using the Bind to Dynamic Source button with this result:

<label>
<input <?php if (!(strcmp(((isset($_POST["prefContact_usr"]))?$_POST["prefContact_usr"]:""),"Phone"))) {echo "checked=\"checked\"";} ?> name="prefContact_usr" type="radio" id="prefContact_usr_0" value="Phone" />
Phone</label>
&nbsp;&nbsp;|&nbsp;&nbsp;
<label>
<input <?php if (!(strcmp(((isset($_POST["prefContact_usr"]))?$_POST["prefContact_usr"]:""),"Cell"))) {echo "checked=\"checked\"";} ?> name="prefContact_usr" type="radio" id="prefContact_usr_1" value="Cell" />
Cell</label>

Should I be binding the group in a different way.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You have bound the dynamic selection from the posted form element, you should set it up to check the value from your recordset instead.

Thank you Eric,

Don't know how I can be so dumb sometimes :-(

You should not feel dumb, I make some ridiculous mistakes from time to time. It can be easy to grab the wrong value or overlook the problem and focus on the wrong part. Getting an extra set of eyes to help check is often the best way to get over issues like this.
