[Resolved] Limited Checkbox Selection

    I was wondering if it was possible to set a limit on the checkbox field (for profile fields).

    So lets say I have “Select 2 of your favorite colors”
    Red
    Green
    Blue
    Yellow

    And then when they select red and blue, and try to select yellow a message says “Please only select 2″ And it doesn’t allow them to check anymore.

    I did see that, but how can I do that with the way buddypress is set up? What files do I need to edit basically?

    I found a way to hide the list if they didn’t choose the suggested number but ideally I would like it to give them a pop up notification that you can only select 5 instead of just being listed in the description under the box.

    <?php if ( count($expertise) <= 5 ) : ?>
    	<div class="expertise">
    		<p><strong>Areas of Expertise:</strong></p>
    		ul>
    			<?php $track <= 5; foreach ( $expertise as $area ) : $track++; ?>
    				<li><?php echo $area; ?></li>
    				
    		<?php if ( $track== ceil( count($expertise) / 3 ) ) : $track = 0; ?>
    		/ul>
    		ul>
    		<?php endif; ?> 
    				
    			<?php endforeach; ?>
    		/ul>
    	</div>
    <?php endif; ?>

    This is located in the member-header.php

    javascript:

    function checkboxlimit(checkgroup, limit){
    	for (var i=0; i<checkgroup.length; i++){
    		checkgroup[i].onclick=function(){
    		var checkedcount=0
    		for (var i=0; i<checkgroup.length; i++)
    			checkedcount+=(checkgroup[i].checked)? 1 : 0
    		if (checkedcount>limit){
    			alert("You can select a maximum of "+limit+" boxes.")
    			this.checked=false
    			}
    		}
    	}
    }		
    checkboxlimit(document.forms.your_form_name_or_id['field_name[]'], 5);
