Just a quick question. Does it matter if two label for names are the same?

I thought it wouldn’t because when this data is sent to server, it is sent as a pair of name and values, separated by &. But apparently it is fine, and the result will be interpreted as an array.

You can test including this in the form:

<label for="indoor"> 
  <input id="indoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">Indoor 
</label>
<label for="indoor"> 
  <input id="indoor" type="checkbox" name="indoor-outdoor">Indoor 
</label>

Adding the method to the form, like so <form method="POST"...> and Checking the POST request in the Network tab on the browser. Effectively, that is interpreted as an array. This is what I find:

//Raw Form Data
indoor-outdoor=on&indoor-outdoor=on
//JSON Form Data
indoor-outdoor:['on', 'on']

It is a great question.

Thanks for the answers! :grin:
