In the previous article you saw how to insert a value from a textbox into a MySQL database in PHP. In this article you will see how to insert a value from a radio button into a MySQL database using PHP.

First of all we will create a database and table. The code for creating the database and table are as follows:

Create Database

<?php
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","root","");
if (!$con)
  {
 
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }
 
if (mysql_query("CREATE DATABASE ABC",$con))
  {
 
echo "Your Database created !!";
  }
else
 
{
 
echo "Error creating database: " . mysql_error();
  }
mysql_close($con);
?>

Create Table

<?php
$con = mysql_connect ("localhost","root","");
if (!$con)
  {
 
die ('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }
mysql_select_db (
"ABC", $con);
$sql =
"CREATE TABLE employee
(
name VARCHAR( 50 ) ,
sex VARCHAR( 50 ) ,
)"
;
mysql_query($sql,$con);
echo "Your Table Created !!";
mysql_close($con);
?>

After creating the database and table, we will make a table. This table has two fields i.e. name and sex (male and female). Using this table we will insert data in the MySQL database.

Code

<?php
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","root","");
mysql_select_db(
"ABC", $con);
@$a=$_POST[
'name'];
@$b=$_POST[
'sex'];
if(@$_POST['submit'])
{
echo $s="insert into employee(name,sex) values('$a','$b')";
echo "Your Data Inserted";
mysql_query($s);
}
?>
<html>
<
body bgcolor="pink">
<center>
<
form method="post">
<table border="1" bgcolor="#00CCFF">
<tr><td>Name</td>
<
td><input type="text" name="name"/></td>
</tr>
<

<td><input type="radio" name="sex" value="Male"/>Male</td>
<tr>
<

</tr>
<
tr><td><input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit"/></td></tr>
</table>
</
form>
</
center>
</
body>
</
html>
