Hi :)




I'm really happy that we started so interesting discussion :-)


Mariusz is right ! 


So I'm putting here the right version of example, that we make 
together


/including the problem with commas/:




$query_str = "select ";


if ($_POST["id_chbox"] == 1)


    $query_str .= " id,";


if ($_POST["name_chbox"] == 1)


    $query_str .= " name,";




.......and at the and cut the last 1 sign of this string - which /if 
at least one checkbox is checked/ surely will be a comma


dealing with "no checkbox checked" that another subject ;-)




And - this is for Angelo - It would be great if you share code, that 
you're writting!




Happy To Help


Asia Sledzik

1, that

executed.

:-> Same here... == instead of =, and .= instead of += and ' name' 
instead of


:-> $_POST['id_name'];


:-> Also, real code should check whether any field has been already 
inserted in


:-> the $query_str before the comma will be used as separator.

:-> A few dozens of iterations should be pretty fast. And this 
method is more


:-> 'elegant' than linear - if( x==1)... else if( x==2) ... else if( 
x==3).. way.
