Default Echo Data To Textarea Box?


I'm trying to create a script that echoes javascript code to a textarea box depending on which checkboxes are selected.

So if all checkboxes are selected, it echoes all the data associated with each checkbox in order.

So far this is what I have:


if (isset($_POST['checkbox1'])) {

echo "echo this javascript data to mybox";


if (isset($_POST['checkbox2'])) {

echo "echo this javascript data to mybox";




<form name="myform" action="index.php" method="post">

<textarea name="mybox" cols="75" rows="5" wrap="soft">
Data goes here

<input type="checkbox" name="checkbox1" value="checkbox1">
<input type="checkbox" name="checkbox2" value="checkbox2">

<input type="submit" value="Submit" name="submit">


Also, how can I specify that all data is placed between two pieces of data, no matter which checkboxes are selected?

For example:

If both checkboxes are selected, the data from each would always be placed between:


*data from checkbox1
*data from checkbox2


How can I get this to work?

Use switch() ..case statement to echo in betweeen html textarea tags. User need submit the form after checkboxes choices.
