YES/NO (checkBOX) - VALUE number

User moon_1309 2013-12-04 21:39:58

Hello.

My calculator consists of sets "multiple->YES/NO".
payment must occur by summing the checkboxes (YES/NO) field
($result=#checkbox1+checkbox2+....checkboxN)

But the FIELD, (YES/NO - type), has no option where you can enter a value.

How can I set the "number" of the "field"?

Hi,
checkboxes have value "Y" when selected, that you can use to confirm if user checked or not the option, but you can give them a numeric value at the code, you don't need to overwritte the default value of the check. Here a couple of examples:

Field: check0- typed YES/NO
Field: check1- typed YES/NO


//at the code, we'll create values for each check, but we give them different name:

$check0value=5;
$check1value=8;

//if you want to calculate the sum of the two options, regardeless of whether are selected or not:

$result=$check0value+$check1value;


//and now, if you want to sum ONLY the selected values:

$result=0;

//if check0 is selected, add its value to result
if($check0=="Y"){
$result=$result+$check0value;

}



//if check1 is selected, add its value to result
if($check1=="Y"){
$result=$result+$check1value;

}

//you will get at $result the sum of the options


Hope this helps, regards
