Can I have spaces in VALUE

For a Radio Button, would this work okay…

        <label><input id="opt5" type="radio" name="education" value="College (Bachelors)" />College (Bachelors)</label>



Would it be better from a backend standpoint to make the value something like “College_Bachelors” or does’t it matter to HTML or PHP?

Doesn’t matter. So long as you sanitize the data coming in and validate it against what is acceptable, you’ll be fine.

I’m kicking Ryan’s butt! Too slow there buddy! :stuck_out_tongue: :wink:


The data will be coming in as a string. It doesn’t matter.

I think it’s cool to post something and see things appear instantaneously - including edits!

Yes it is.

I beat you @cpradio . 1-2 in favor of you.

Is it bad to be storing values - with spaces in between words - in the database?

“College - Bachelors”
“College - Masters”
“College - Doctorate”

“Worker - Blue-Collar”
“Worker - White-Collar”

(These are attributes about a User, and not keys or anything special.)

No. So long as your database schema type accepts it (string, varchar, text, etc.), you’re fine.

I don’t know DB crap so I let you have it. You were slow :wink:

Awww, what a poor sportsman :stuck_out_tongue:

Very nice of you to “let me have it” :wink: (just kidding of course)

This is a classic that seems to be appropriate…

Howard Cosell, Right There!

Come on @mikey_w, we need another question! :smile: (not to put you on the spot, but Ryan and I have a very good competition going on in this topic)

I have pre-typed messages ready and waiting! Let me use one of them. Do ask us a question!

LOL Okay, I’ll do my best to help out, although you guys may be out of luck for a while, because I am supposedly supposed to finish my client’s website today… :open_mouth:

Have fun with that.

lol, I can just foresee how that will go.

Ryan: Yes, you can style that with CSS, here is an example on CodePen!
