Check Box and Radio Button


#1
  I am using multiple check box and a radio

button and when I click the “Submit” button, it calls the “create”
method it is inserting only 1 value for checkbox and also for the radio
button.
Could you please tell how to insert multiple check box values in create.
Please send me the link if you have any sample programs.

 Also, in the scaffold edit page, the default "edit" method displays

all the fields (including checkbox and radio buttons) as
“text_field”(text box) with only single value.
Could you please tell how to populate multiple checkbox and radio
buttons in the edit page with the values populating.
Please send me the link if you have any sample programs.

<% for something in @something %>
<%= check_box_tag name[], somethind.id, checked = false %>
<% end %>
and you receive the id’s of the checked check boxes in array of name
i.e. params[:name]

Thanks Salil for your reply.

I am using the checkbox and following is the code.

Java<%=check_box(“employees”, “skills”, {}, “Java”, “Java”)%>
Rails<%=check_box(“employees”, “skills”, {}, “Rails”, “Rails”)%>
C<%=check_box(“employees”, “skills”, {}, “C”, “C”)%>

Here even if I select both Java and Rails, only Java value is
selected and inserting in database. Could you please tell to make both
the values inserted into the database.

Also, in the scaffold edit page, the default "edit" method displays

all the fields (including checkbox and radio buttons) as
“text_field”(text box) with only single value.

this is because you are giving same name [employees, skills] to both the
checkboxes.
if you change it as follows.

Java<%=check_box(“employees”, “skills”, {}, “Java”, “Java”)%>
Rails<%=check_box(“employees”, “skills1”, {}, “Rails”, “Rails”)%>

and if ypu select both Java and Rails it will give following result

“employees”=>{“skills1”=>“Rails”, “skills”=>“Java”}

all the fields (including checkbox and radio buttons) as
“text_field”(text box) with only single value.

Thanks Salil for your help.

I had given like

Java<%=check_box_tag “employees”, “skills[]”, “Java” %>
Rails<%=check_box_tag “employees”, “skills[]”, “Rails” %>

since it belongs to the “employee” object. So both the checkboxes (Java
and Rails) are selected in the “new” page.

In the controller, I had given

@employees = Employees.new(@params[‘employees’])
@employees.save

Also in the DB, I am having a table called as “employees” and in that
“skills” is a column.

Is it possible to have a single column “skills” for multiple checkboxes
(Java, Rails and C)

Can you please suggest what needs to be done.

if you are insist on a same name then you can also use.
Java<%=check_box_tag “skills[]”, “Java” %>
Rails<%=check_box_tag “skills[]”, “Rails” %>

on selecting both and then submit you get.

“skills”=>[“Java”, “Rails”],
