Survey From Repeat Region Script

Survey From Repeat Region Script

I'm trying to make a survey form and I've written a script that displays the survey correctly but I'm not sure how or if I can use DataAssist to get the values into the database. I've sent the simple script and you can see it displayed at The database has a field called surveyanswerVotes and I want to add to existing values whenever the checkbox is checked for that field but not when it isn't. I've done this on a poll script and that worked but building it so the form displayed multiple questions instead of one made what I did before unusable. Any help is appreciated.

instead of dynamically naming the checkbox, set it to be a checkbox group that uses the same name for each one
<input type="checkbox" name="surveyAnswers[]"....

adding the square brackets at the end of the name "surveyAnswers[]" causes the checkbox to submit the selections as an array.

use the following code at line 1 to convet the array top a comma seperated list:


if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     {
$_POST as $key => $val) {
is_array($_POST[$key])) $_POST[$key] = implode(", "$_POST[$key]);

and in the Inser record server behavior, use the following code to bind the surveyanswerVotes column to the surveyAnswers form element:

<?php echo((isset($_POST["surveyAnswers"]))?$_POST["surveyAnswers"]:""?>
