View Full Version : _POST radio buttons in a form

Hey all, coming back into php, had a few months off and im already feeling abit rusty.

basically little unsure on how to submit a radio button answer.

lets say in a form you have to select male or female radio button.
how do we parse this as a true value.

$male= $_POST['male'];
$female= $_POST['female']

$body = ...
Male: $male\n
Female: $female\n

how do i set the value to true for whichever radio button is selected.

radio buttons are named the same in the same group but the values are different. When catching radio values just employ one $_POST

example ...

$radio = $_POST['radio'];

then you just have to perform logic on the value

switch ($radio){

case 'male': /* do stuff here */; break;
case 'female': /* do stuff here */; break;
