I have a checkbox form element that uses taxonomy terms via variable_get as #default_value; storing the result. I don't want to overwrite value, I just want the form to render/display checked initially.

  $form['search_block_topic'] = array(
    '#type' => 'checkboxes',
    '#options' => $topic_options,
    '#default_value' => variable_get('search_topic_options', $topic_options)

I tried '#return_value' => "checked" which doesn't work.

  • You mean besides the default value, you want another option to also be checked? – No Sssweat Oct 8 at 3:41
  • I would like all the check boxes to initially be checked but then store with a form_submit function. Right now the store works fine but they start unchecked. – kubak Oct 8 at 11:40
