Radio Groups

Hi all,

I have used Dataassist to produce some forms from a database, but i need to combine some of these fields into radio groups. I understand that to create a radio group within dreamweaver I need to set the 'name' the same for all fields, but this causes issues with the preconfigured $POST code as it expects a specific name for each field and appears to treat radio groups as one field. How can I configure this so the following can work;

RadioGroup Radio Logic

RadioGroup1 - Button1 - If checked Pizza_field = "1" else = "0"
RadioGroup1 - Button2 - If checked Roast_field = "1" else = "0"
RadioGroup1 - Button3 - If checked BBQ_field = "1" else = "0"
RadioGroup1 - Button4 - If checked Not_Interested_field = "1" else = "0"

I'm sure that this must be very simple, but i've been staring at the code so long, i've gone cross eyed. I thought I could do it with something along the lines of...

Name = RadioGroup1, ID = Field1, Value = <? php Pizza_field = "1"?>;
Name = RadioGroup1, ID = Field2, Value = <? php Roast_field = "1"?>;

...and set the default in MYSQL to "0".

Any help gratefully received.

Dave

You would set the names of the radio fields to be all the same. Then you would set their values to be all different like:

value="pizza"
value="roast"
value="bbq"
value="none"

Then in the insert record server behavior for the Pizza_field you would use the value:
<?php echo(($_POST['RadioGroup1'] == "pizza")?0:1); ?>

and similarly for the other fields.

On the update page you would have to hand code selecting the radio button when applicable with code like:

<input type="radio" name="RadioGroup1" value="pizza" <?php echo(($row_RecordsetName['Pizza_field'] == 1)?'checked="checked"':""); ?> >
