Add a Radio Button Control to a Form
Good to Know:
- A Radio Button control is highly configurable. You can add one or many to a form, then define the associated field (field that stores the value) and the value to store, and how the radio button looks and behaves on the form (example: Text, tooltip, size, color, border style, image, alignment, anchoring, layering, visibility, enabling/disabling, and tab order).
- See Form Editor Behaviors for tips on working with controls and the Form Editor.
To add a Radio Button control to a form:
- Open a form in the Form Editor.
- Drag-and-drop the Radio Button control from the Standard Controls tree onto the form.
- Define what the Radio Button control will do:
- Right-click the Radio Button control, and then select Control Properties.
- In the Radio Button Properties window, define the following:
Select the field in the drop-down list that will store the radio button's selected ("checked") value.
Provide the value to store in the field you selected in the Associated field drop-down list (when the radio button is selected).
Example: Add radio button to Show all Tabs. When selected, a Show all Tabs value is stored in a Tab Visibility field. A form arrangement could then use an expression to conditionally show/hide tabs based on the value in the Tab Visibility field.
- Define the text to display for the Radio Button control:
- In the Label text box on the Form Editor toolbar, provide the text to display.
- (Optional) Change the font, font size, font style, font alignment, and text wrap, if needed.
- Define how the form control looks and behaves on the form (example: Size, alignment, etc.).
