[php] Selecting multiple radio buttons (through jquery, javasscript?)


Radio buttons are designed so that only one option from each group (as designated by their shared name) can be selected at once (just like you can only tune a radio to one station).

The input control which allows any number of options to be selected is the checkbox. If you append [] to their names, then the selected options will arrive on the PHP side as an array.

<input type="checkbox" value="1" name="poll[]" />
<input type="checkbox" value="2" name="poll[]" />

I currently have a form with lets say 5 radio button entries (see below). What im looking archive is the following: - Being able to choose multiple radio buttons - lets say 3 and submit the form.

Currently I got it working fine with PHP, SQL, but im only able to choose one radiobutton and submit that.

I figure it would also come in handy being able to deselect a radio button in case you wrongly click one.

My guess is that this can be done through some javascript? Any suggestions? Online examples perhaps?

<form id="pollform" action="poll.php" method="post">
<input id="option-1" type="radio" value="1" name="poll">
<label for="option-1">Select option 1</label>

<input id="option-2" type="radio" value="2" name="poll">
<label for="option-2">Select option 2</label>

<input id="option-3" type="radio" value="3" name="poll">
<label for="option-3">Select option 3</label>

<input id="option-4" type="radio" value="4" name="poll">
<label for="option-4">Select option 4</label>

<input id="option-5" type="radio" value="5" name="poll">
<label for="option-5">Select option 5</label>
