Checkboxes and arrays
pnwer asked:
I am in the process of building a custom reporting and export module, but am running into a small problem.  I want users to be able to select the fields they want to display in their report from a list of check boxes. Example

_ Name
_ Address
_ PhoneNumber

I have written many of the scripts, but an running into a problem retrieving the checked boxes to input into the script that builds the reports.  Do you have any hint on how to get an array from the checkboxes and push that data into a .ws script.  Thank you.

  Please try the following and let me know how it goes.

<form action="/sample.ws?_fn=test" method="post" >

Select the fields:

<input type="checkbox" value="1" name="check" >Name</input>
<input type="checkbox" value="2" name="check">Address</input>
<input type="checkbox" value="3" name="check" >Address1</input>
<input type="submit"/>
</form>  

In Sample.ws write following code Webcall function test()

{
Var values=request.getparameterValues (“check”);
Response. write (values);
}
