Dynamically Populate Checkboxes

  1. Is this (http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/dynamic-checkboxes) still the best method for populating checkboxes? Or should we be using the gform_field_value_parameter_name hook? If so what sort of value should be returned for checkboxes (assuming array of arrays?)?

  2. Hi Travis,

    The first approach would allow you to prepopulate the actual checkboxes available. The second approach would allow you to specify which checkboxes should be selected by default. When using the latter, you'll want to return a comma delimited list of options which should be selected.

  3. Hi,
    I'm a little confused. I'm trying to specify which checkboxes should be selected by default based on a true/false condition. It is not clear to me how to achieve this from the example code in the link above.

    Could someone provide a simple example showing how to check either box in a 2 option checkbox field.

    The filter:
    add_filter('gform_field_value_checkboxes', create_function("", "return 1;"));
    Seems to check all boxes in the field.

  4. Hi mmoriart,

    Assuming you have your field setup like so this, you can populate it using this code and it'll look like this when you load the form.

  5. Hi David,
    I tried your example but it doesn't seem to work. I configured my checkbox field like this and entered this code
    and neither box is checked. Whats going wrong? If I return 1, I get both checked.

  7. I still can't get this to work. Where is the code added? I have tried in functions.php and in the page template. Neither seems to work.
