I noticed that PHP seems to return only values of checked checkboxes. I would like to see a list of checkboxes, not just values of checked checkboxes. Is there a way to detect variables of unchecked boxes?

I asked because I want to be able to update settings. For example, I have a few options that are already checked but if an user decides to uncheck an option, I need to know that unchecked value so I can update the option to be disabled.



I just ran into this problem myself. I solved it by adding a duplicate hidden field with the same name. When the browser sends this information, the second field overrides the first (so ensure that the hidden field comes first).

<input type="hidden" name="foo" value="">
<input type="checkbox" name="foo" value="bar">

If the checkbox is not checked you get:

$_REQUEST[ 'foo' ] == ""

If the checkbox is checked you get:

$_REQUEST[ 'foo' ] == "bar"

Change this:

<td><input type="checkbox" name="all_sizes" value="All">All<br></td>

to this (add the keyword 'checked'):

<td><input type="checkbox" name="all_sizes" value="All" checked>All<br></td>

<input type="checkbox" name="txtCheck" value="<?php echo $_POST['txtCheck'];?>"  /><br />


<input type="checkbox" name="txtCheck" value="your value" <?php if(isset($_POST['txtCheck'])) echo "checked='checked'"; ?>  /><br />

this will keep checkbox checked..

I got this working using the code posted by @rekle as a starting point. The trick is to use NSDirectoryEnumerator, which will do this recursively. Here's the function I wrote in case anyone needs it.

- (NSArray *)recursivePathsForResourcesOfType:(NSString *)type inDirectory:(NSString *)directoryPath{

    NSMutableArray *filePaths = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];

    // Enumerators are recursive
    NSDirectoryEnumerator *enumerator = [[[NSFileManager defaultManager] enumeratorAtPath:directoryPath] retain];

    NSString *filePath;

    while ((filePath = [enumerator nextObject]) != nil){

        // If we have the right type of file, add it to the list
        // Make sure to prepend the directory path
        if([[filePath pathExtension] isEqualToString:type]){
            [filePaths addObject:[directoryPath stringByAppendingPathComponent:filePath]];

    [enumerator release];

    return [filePaths autorelease];

Swift, using NSURL

func recursivePathsForResources(type type: String) -> [NSURL] {

    // Enumerators are recursive
    let enumerator = NSFileManager.defaultManager().enumeratorAtPath(bundlePath)
    var filePaths = [NSURL]()

    while let filePath = enumerator?.nextObject() as? String {

        if NSURL(fileURLWithPath: filePath).pathExtension == type {

    return filePaths

I'm not sure what your HTML looks like, but

$("twitter").attr("id", url);

should probably be:

$(".twitter").attr("id", url);

Update: Try this code... you need to detect if the iframe has loaded as well (demo)

$(function () {
    // define this here because we're changing the ID
    var $twitter = $('#twitter');
    // bind to select inside iframe
    $('#iframe').on('load', function () {
        $(this).contents().find('#cds').change(function () {
            var selectVal = $(this).val();
            url = ' enjoying ' + selectVal + ' on';
            $twitter.attr("id", url).text(url);
        }).change(); // trigger change to get initial value

Also, since we're changing the ID of twitter, we need to save that jQuery object.
