Update page with multiple check boxes

Update page with multiple check boxes


First let me say I'm brand new to PHP and MySQL so my problem might seem ridiculus to some.

I have problem with retrieving results, from previously correctly inserted data to database from a checkbox group on an insert page, back to the update page. This is what I've succeeded with this far:

- Created wizard generated pages with insert, update, search, delete pages etc.
- I have a group checkbox with name genre[] that send its values in array to a coma separated list to a single column in database:
<?php echo ((isset($_POST["genre"]))?implode(", ", $_POST["genre"]):""); ?>

This works just fine.

Now I just don't know how to retrive the previously inserted data to be able to update (change) the checkbox group alternatives from the update page?

I tried the following on the update page for each input box but it did not work:

exemple 1st input checkbox:
<input type="checkbox" name="genre[]" value="movietitle" id="genre_0" <?php echo((in_array("movietitle", explode(", ",
$row_RecordsetName['ColumnName'])))?"checked=checked":""); ?>/>

I got the following error messege:

Notice: Undefined variable: row_RecordsetName in C:\xampp\htdocs\my_domain\mytable_Update.php

Please give me some input in how to solve this!

Problem solved! Forgot to change server behaviour in update page!
