Hey Zed,

I've tried to generate the checkboxes one at a time like in your second example.

CGI::checkbox(-name => 'the_group', -value => $value, -label =>'')

Now what i require is something similar to...

$some_spaces = " " #here are 4 spaces. $my_label = $title . $some_spaces . $description . $somespaces . $more +text # the variables above just represent some basic information CGI::checkbox(-name => 'the_group', -value => $value, -label =>$my_lab +el)
now what i'd expect from the web page is a checkbox with a label that has each part split by 4 spaces.
Unfortunately the html is being smart and removing unnecessary white space, so what i end up with is each variable only being seperated by a single space, ideally what im looking for is a way to get around this.
any more ideas would be appreciated

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
