php - how to select multiple radio buttons in html - Selecting multiple radio buttons (through jquery, javasscript?)

1 Answers

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[]" />

javascript radio button multiple choice

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>
