    When every fifth checkbox occurs, you can use the &#37; operator to add extra code to add a break to the list of checkboxes.

    for example:

    Code php:
    for (...) {
        if ($i > 0 && $i % 5 === 0) {
            echo '<br>';

    This works because 5 % 5 = 0, and 6 % 5 = 1, so when %i is a multiple of 5, $i % 5 will equal 0, letting you know that it's the right time to add another break.

    put if condition in for loop that checks the no of checkbox to display in a row.

    if($i !=0 && $i &#37; 5==0){


    Above code will check for five checkbox to display in a row.
