How to give a value to non selected checkbox

 P: n/a Hello, I would like to get a value for a non selected checkbox in a form. Imagine my form contains : When I analyse \$t, if first checkbox is not selected and second is, I have : \$t has no value. \$t equals 1 and count(\$t) equals 1 I would like to find a way to get : \$t equals 0. \$t equals 1 and count(\$t) equals 2 Any idea ? Thanx M Apr 25 '06 #1
