You've got the right idea -- use something like 1-7 for the days and 7-21 for the hours, then get Perl to generate field names of the form foo_(day)_(hour). This gives you unique checkbox names. Then when you get the form submitted, do a nested set of loops and see if each checkbox is selected or not. I'd probably pop that information straight into a database table.

Yeah, use a nested loop to output the checkboxes, and use the outter loop to handle the opening and closing tr, and the inner loop for the opening and closing td elements. Piece of cake.

Title:
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.
