Creating Dynamic Checkbox Names

Recommended Posts

I have a need for creating checkbox names that go through a loop and are named by concatenating the name of the field with a number that is the loop index.

        <%if pDiscussed(i) <> "True" then%>
            <input type="checkbox" name="ynDiscussed" & CStr(i)  value="0" />
        <%else%>
            <input type="checkbox" name="ynDiscussed" & CStr(i)  value="1" checked />
        <%end if%></td>


I've done this before with text boxes and there are no problems but somehow with a checkbox it will not work.  I've even tried using an array (ynDiscussed[]) along with...

        <%if pDiscussed(i) <> "True" then%>
            <input type="checkbox" name="ynDiscussed(" & CStr(i) & ")"  value="0" />
        <%else%>
            <input type="checkbox" name="ynDiscussed(" & CStr(i) & ")"  value="1" checked />
        <%end if%></td>

but it doesn't like that either.

I can't even substitute in a number instead of the CStr(i) and have it pick it up - my code reading: <input type="checkbox" name="ynDiscussed" & "1"  value="0" />

Is this simply impossible or what am I missing?

Any help is very much appreciated.  Cheers!

This does not seem to be an HTML question, it looks like ASP. This syntax is not familiar to me, but if I had to guess what's wrong, I'd say you need to wrap the "CStr" part in <% %> tags.
