Working with checkboxes and a database
Jan 12, 2009 @ 21:13:12

On the PHPFreaks.com website a new tutorial (by Ben Smithers) looks at interfacing checkboxes in your application's form with a backend database.

The concept is actually pretty simple. It involves naming your checkbox as an array and the use of the IN mysql clause. This tutorial aims to give a simple example in the hope that, next time someone asks, I can point them to a tutorial rather than explaining all over again.

They include the database structure, insert statements and the code needed to pull and push the information for the checkboxes.

Extending PHP Doctrine Record - Check Box Groups
Aug 12, 2008 @ 13:26:36

In the third part of the series dealing with using Doctrine in your PHP applications, ProDevTips has this third part looking at a method for extending the tool's current functionality.

I simply knew we would need the extension capability that the Mdl class allows for sooner or later, I didn’t expect it to be this soon though. The main problem here is saving a many to many relationship straight to the database from the $_POST array, to do that we can extend Doctrine Record with a new function I have named fromArrayExt which adds something extra to the normal fromArray method.

He shows how to extend the classes to create custom handlers for a grouping of checkboxes. The new code automatically handles their submitted values and pushes them directly into the database (with a simple save() call).
