Description: ------------ When I create a checkbox field using the HTML_QuickForm::createElement this one comes with attribute value set to 1 and I need to change that value but in the constructor of the checkbox (HTML_QuickForm_checkbox) has a code that update the attribute value only. I think that all attributes need to be updated. Reproduce code: --------------- My code: $res =& $db->query(" select idModule, name from module where status='1' order by name "); while($res->fetchInto($row)) { $formChecks[] = &HTML_QuickForm::createElement('checkbox', 'perm[]', null, $row['name'], array('value'=>$row['idModule'])); } $form->addGroup($formChecks, null, null, "<br>\n"); Code where I think the error is in the constructor of HTML_QuickForm_checkbox: $this->updateAttributes(array('value'=>1)); Code I think that resolv the problem: $this->updateAttributes($attributes); Expected result: ---------------- Checkboxes with defined values. Actual result: -------------- Checkboxes with value attribute equal 1

I'm also using this class and can confirm that wathever you use (constructor parameter $elementLabel, array('value'=>[myValue]) in constructor parameter $attributes, or setValue function), you always get a checkbox with a value of 1

Changing the line in the constructor for checkbox from $this->updateAttributes(array('value'=>1)); to if (!isset($attributes['value'])) $this->updateAttributes(array('value'=>1)); allows the value of the checkbox to be set in the attribute field with the the argument 'value'=>'arbitrary value'

Moving feature requests to HTML_QuickForm2.

This behaviour is changed in QuickForm2. Code similar to proposed by "mark at slosarek dot com" was added to checkbox constructor.
