Check boxes example?

#1
I've been searching for one, I'm trying to work with check boxes in the options however I'm not finding much information on usage for it.

Anyone have an example for it?

@Brogan you're like my XenForo parent. You always seem to be the one to help me! :whistle:(y):love:

Okay, so I'm seeing this.
Code:
a:4:{s:9:"showStaff";s:1:"1";s:15:"displayMultiple";s:1:"1";s:13:"hideUserTitle";b:0;s:17:"showStaffAndOther";b:0;}
I know this is serialized, although I don't have a key to tell me what means what.
Converted it looks like...
Code:
array (
  'showStaff' => '1',
  'displayMultiple' => '1',
  'hideUserTitle' => false,
  'showStaffAndOther' => false,
)
So is there a real difference between s:1:"1" and b:0? Well I would think b is a boolean so to match it would be b:1.

So in code I would do something like
Code:
if($options->formatParameter.myCheckbox) { }
As long as the default value is...
Code:
a:1:{s:11:"myCheckbox";b:0;}
And my Array suboptions are just "myCheckbox"?

Also, what about naming them? I know with other stuff you can put
option = {xen: phrase myPhrase}
So what about with check boxes?

Thanks again @Brogan
I'm trying to catch on quickly here.

For the values, s is string and i is integer.
So these two would be the same:
  • s:1:"1";
  • ;i:1;
In the template you use options like so:
Code:
<xen:if is="{$xenOptions.optionId.optionValue}">
In PHP like so:
Code:
$options = XenForo_Application::getOptions();
if ($options->optionId['optionValue'])
or:
Code:
if (XenForo_Application::getOptions()->optionId['optionValue'])
Phrases can be used for labelling checkboxes and radio buttons.
