checkbox update multiple records

Thread began 12/22/2010 7:11 am by ivanibarra999361583 | Last modified 12/22/2010 4:57 pm by ivanibarra999361583 | 941 views | 2 replies |


checkbox update multiple records


I have created 2 pages, one that displays the results of a query. I have added a checkbox to select which records will be updated.

The other page will display the selected results for those to be updated.

I am having trouble displaying the results on the second page. I can't figure out how to filter the results using data assist search.

Can you please guide me in the right direction?

You would name all of the checkboxes with the same name and make sure the name ends with [] to account for multiple selections using a single name multiple times in the same form being submitted as an array in php.

Then you can use DataAssist Search and use the name of the checkboxes (without the []) as the select list name. A series of checkboxes behave identically to a muliple select list once submitted.
