( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Among the other properties of &CGI::checkbox_group is {linebreak=>'true'}. The list of @predefined should be an arrayref:

print $q->checkbox_group ( -name=>'predefined', -values=>\@predefined, -linebreak=>'true' -default=>[ @predefined[@slicer] ], -labels=>\%predefined_labelhash, );
Those are all documented in 'perldoc CGI'.

Update: Corrected the omitted '-' in the arguments. Here is a working test:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use CGI; my $q = CGI->new(); my @predef = ( 'abba', 'dabba', 'doo'); my @slicer = ( 1 ); my %labels = ( abba => 'pop', dabba => 'amateur', doo => "don't go the +re" ); print $q->checkbox_group ( -name => 'predefined', -values => \@predef, -default => [@predef[@slicer]],  -linebreak => 'true', -labels => \%labels,); =pod comment $ perl ~/tcgi.pl <input type="checkbox" name="predefined" value="abba" />pop<br /><inpu +t type="checkbox" name="predefined" value="dabba" checked="checked" / +>amateur<br /><input type="checkbox" name="predefined" value="doo" /> +don&#39;t go there<br /> $ =cut
xtype, maybe your @predefined array doesn't contain what you think it does.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
