Full Coding for ON/OFF Button with PHP Ajax

When we clicked on/off button, jquery script will be triggered and value will be passed to ajax.php. Then ajax.php will update the value in database.

Following code will remain the button value as same as in database value. If we selected value as “OFF”, when we reopen the webpage/refresh the webpage  the value will be remained as OFF.

 <input type=”checkbox” name=”onoffswitch” id=”myonoffswitch”
<?php
$query3=mysql_query(“select * from choice where id=1″);
$query4=mysql_fetch_array($query3);
if($query4['choice']==”off”)
{
echo “checked”;
}
?>>

    This is just what i needed, but I have a question:
    The db name is freezy, but what about the table name?
    I cant create the fields without creating a table first..

    i,e instead of id=1 some id=’$id?
