Example 8-12. {html_radios} : Example 1


->assign('cust_ids', array(1000,1001,1002,1003));
$smarty->assign('cust_names', array(
'Joe Schmoe',
'Jack Smith',
'Jane Johnson',
'Charlie Brown')


Where template is:

{html_radios name="id" values=$cust_ids output=$cust_names
       selected=$customer_id separator="<br />"}

Example 8-13. {html_radios} : Example 2


->assign('cust_radios', array(
1000 => 'Joe Schmoe',
1001 => 'Jack Smith',
1002 => 'Jane Johnson',
1003 => 'Charlie Brown'));


Where index.tpl is:

{html_radios name="id" options=$cust_radios selected=$customer_id separator="<br />"}

Both examples will output:

<label for="id_1000">
<input type="radio" name="id" value="1000" id="id_1000" />Joe Schmoe</label><br />
<label for="id_1001"><input type="radio" name="id" value="1001" id="id_1001" checked="checked" />Jack Smith</label><br />
<label for="id_1002"><input type="radio" name="id" value="1002" id="id_1002" />Jane Johnson</label><br />
<label for="id_1003"><input type="radio" name="id" value="1003" id="id_1003" />Charlie Brown</label><br />
