How to fill a Confiform form from an external database, and then update the database via the form

I've gotten as far as being able to pull information from a MySQL table into a field of type Database-Dropdown on my Confiform form.  Assuming that this success indicates that all configuration steps for the database connection are working properly, I now want to be able to modify information brought into the form and have the changes communicated to the database.

I viewed the CRUD site: (and one or two others that directed me to the site below)

Are there other resources anyone can point out, including ones that perhaps demonstrate how other field types like check boxes and radio buttons are handled?  Also, any other suggestions are welcomed.

Probably this is the best page to cover this -

It explains what is stored (internal value) for each field type and what properties each field type has

Checkboxes operate on true/false and Radio buttons (same as dropdowns and checkbox groups) operate on options with properties id and label

Thanks for the tip, Alex!  Sounds like just what I need.
