Checkbox ticked in Insert page retain value in update page?

Checkbox ticked in Insert page retain value in update page?

Hi,

Question 1

Ran a standard DataAssist Wizard procedure to create some admin pages. In the insert page, there are two fields that are checkboxes, and similarly in the update page, these two fields are also checkboxes. Submitting an insert page with the box(es) checked adds the value '1' to the appropriate column in the database, and a (default) value of '0' if they are not checked (I am using the WA eCommerce database with two extra columns - tinyint(1) - for these values).

I have as the update page code for the checkbox(es):

php:
<input <?php if (!(strcmp(((isset($_POST["ProductLive"]))?$_POST["ProductLive"]:""),1))) {echo "checked=\"checked\"";} ?> type="checkbox" name="ProductLive" id="ProductLive" value="1" />

When I go to the update page, these columns haven't retained the values. How can I make the '1' in the database show a tick in the update page checkboxes if ticked in the insert page?

Question 2

Using the WA eCommerce Database, a price entered into the ProductsPrice column (products table) if I enter '10.00', shows as '10'. The column type is float. How can I have the data drawn from this column show as '10.00'?

Thanks

Question 1

In the code you show:
<input <?php if (!(strcmp(((isset($_POST["ProductLive"]))?$_POST["ProductLive"]:""),1))) {echo "checked=\"checked\"";} ?> type="checkbox" name="ProductLive" id="ProductLive" value="1" />

The value to be checked should be the value pulled from the recordset that is filtered on the page not a post value surely ?

Question 2

Personally I would not use the float datatype for fields that hold currency values there is a good article here mysql-float-vs-decimal-money-datatype/ that outlines why. But to answer your question assuming this is the field:
`ProductPrice` float NOT NULL,
in products table we are talking about then you would change the way the value is presented by going into phpMyAdmin or simlar and editing the filed like so


This would enable a number like 10,000,000.00 to be displayed.

Another way to approach this would be to use the number_format php function function.number-format.php

Hi Dave,

Many thanks for helping with this.The price (0.00) has now been sorted thanks to your advice.


Sorry - I was being dense - the line is now correct:

<input <?php if (!(strcmp($row_WADAproducts['ProductLive'],1))) {echo "checked=\"checked\"";} ?> type="checkbox" name="ProductLive" id="ProductLive" value="1" />



Thanks for the assist!
