    Hello great team:)

    I have a checkbox field called ‘Roles’ with 3 checkboxes that have titles ‘Music’ , ‘Movies’ , ‘Food’.

    I would like to create some if statement according to what the user checked.
    I saw from https://buddydev.com/fetching-and-showing-only-specific-fields-from-buddypress-xprofile-data/ that i can use $data = bp_get_member_profile_data( array( 'field'=>'CheckBox Or Select Field Name','user_id' => $user_id ) );echo $data; to fetch the data, but this returns all data in an array.

    Could you please help me create an if statement like if user with $user_id checked the checkbox 'Music' from checkbox field called 'Roles' because i can’t figure it out.

    As i saw here https://buddypress.org/support/topic/buddypress-checkbox-field-data/ the data in the database are in a form of a serialized array.

    Thank you very much for your time and help

    Hello Lefteris,

    Thank you for posting here. Please try the function with the name “xprofile_get_field_data” use the third argument as ‘comma’. Please try this and let me know if it helps or not.

    Regards

    Hello Ravi,

    Thank you so much for your feedback. You have been a savier for me 🙂

    I have tried to do:

    $data = xprofile_get_field_data( 12, $user_id = 23, 'comma' );
    echo $data;

    but it doesn’t give me any result . Maybe i am doing something wrong?

    Hello Lefteris,

    You are calling function incorrectly. Please call like following:

    
    $data = xprofile_get_field_data( 12, 23, 'comma' )
    
    

    Please give it a try

    Regards
    Ravi

    I just tried, it didn’t gave me any result either . I’ve even tried to set ‘array’ instead of ‘comma’.

    I am sorry for the confusion Ravi, yes it gives me a correct result Music , Movies , Food . But how i can create an if statement to see if music is ticked, or if music+food is ticked, or if none is ticked?

    Hello Lefteris,

    Please try the following way:

    
    $data = xprofile_get_field_data( 12, 23 );
    
    if ( ! $data ) {
    	// No item is selected.
    }
    
    if( in_array( 'Music', $data ) ) {
    	// Music is selected.
    }
    
    // Same goes with other one.
    
    

    Regards

    Hello Ravi,

    Thank you for your help. I have tried this and it work fine. However when the user ticks 2 out of 3 checkboxes, or all checkboxes. it doesn’t work. Any ideas?

    Regards Lefteris
