Checkbox group settings don't stick

Thread began 2/28/2011 12:59 pm by mick106153 | Last modified 4/12/2011 11:46 am by Jason Byrnes | 1336 views | 7 replies |

Checkbox group settings don't stick

If you make an error with the security code and the form fails all the settings in the checkbox group blank out. Something the user would probably never notice and on successful resubmission their intent would not be known to the recipient.
What's the fix?

this is a bug with checkbox groups, i have logged it in our bugbase.


to fix the issue, add the following coed at line 1:

php:
<?php

if(!session_id()); session_start();
if (isset(
$_POST["BattleofLakeErieUSContact_submit"]))  {
    
$_SESSION['checked'] = $_POST['Post_your_comments_or_questions_here_group_Check_those_you_d_like_more_information_about'];
}
?>





change the code for the checkbox groups:

php:
<label class="checkSublabel_OneColumn" for="Post_your_comments_or_questions_here_group_Check_those_you_d_like_more_information_about__1" onblur="hideServerError('Post_your_comments_or_questions_here_group_Check_those_you_d_like_more_information_about__1_ServerError');">

php:
<?php

if(isset($_SESSION['checked'])) {
unset(
$_SESSION['checked']);
}
?>
