Description: ------------ I should be able to do the following and get back an array: $form->addElement('checkbox', 'vegetable1', array('value' => 1), array('label' => 'carrot')); $form->addElement('checkbox', 'vegetable2', array('value' => 2), array('label' => 'pea')); $form->addElement('checkbox', 'vegetable3', array('value' => 3), array('label' => 'bean')); It might be a good idea to have an option to say that this is what is being requested.

Proper code: $form->addElement('checkbox', 'vegetable[]', array('value' => 1), array('label' => 'carrot')); $form->addElement('checkbox', 'vegetable[]', array('value' => 2), array('label' => 'pea')); $form->addElement('checkbox', 'vegetable[]', array('value' => 3), array('label' => 'bean')); Reference: http://news.php.net/php.pear.general/30153

PHP doesn't work that way, you should use vegetable[1], vegetable[2], vegetable[3] as element names instead. This can also be done with a group container : $vegetable = $form->addGroup('vegetable' ...); $vegetable->addCheckbox('1' ...); $vegetable->addCheckbox('2' ...); $vegetable->addCheckbox('3' ...);

Bertrand, the original request (as seen on pear-general) dealt with checkboxes named 'box[]', Alain just copied the wrong example to the feature request from email there.
