Hi, im having a problem with a page that has multiple checkboxes with the same name. When I do $_REQUEST["CheckBoxname"], it only returns the last checkbox checked. How can I walk through all of the check boxes in PHP?

 

Thanks,

The first step is to make sure your form is actually passing an array of checkbox values to your PHP script. In your form, your checkboxes should have name="CheckBoxname[]" (not just name="CheckBoxname") to indicate they are part of an array.

 

Once the form is passing an array correctly, it should be relatively easy to have your script iterate through the array's values.
