Check Box and Radio Button

      I am using multiple check box and a radio button and when I click the "Submit" button, it calls the "create" method it is inserting only 1 value for checkbox and also for the radio button. Could you please tell how to insert multiple check box values in create. Please send me the link if you have any sample programs.

<% for something in @something %>    <%= check_box_tag name,, checked = false %> <% end %> and you receive the id's of the checked check boxes in array of name i.e. params[:name]

Could you please tell to make both the values inserted into the database.

this is because you are giving same name [employees, skills] to both the checkboxes. if you change it as follows.

Java<%=check_box("employees", "skills", {}, "Java", "Java")%> Rails<%=check_box("employees", "skills1", {}, "Rails", "Rails")%>

and if ypu select both Java and Rails it will give following result

"employees"=>{"skills1"=>"Rails", "skills"=>"Java"}

    Also, in the scaffold edit page, the default "edit" method displays all the fields (including checkbox and radio buttons) as "text_field"(text box) with only single value. Could you please tell how to populate multiple checkbox and radio buttons in the edit page with the values populating. Please send me the link if you have any sample programs.

sorry, i didn't get this .......please explain it in details.
