Modifying Radio Buttons and Check Boxes
Radio buttons and check boxes allow you to create options for users to select. A radio button allows a user to select only one choice from a set of options, while a check box allows a user to select more than one option from a set of options. Radio buttons are typically used in groups. Both form objects are very often used when you want to create a survey. After you create a radio button or check box, you can use the Properties panel to set or change options for the form objects.
Work with Radio Button and Checkbox Properties
- Select a radio button or checkbox within a form document.
- Open the Properties panel.
- Select from the following radio button options:
- Radio Button/Checkbox. Enter a name for the Radio Button or Checkbox object.
- Checked Value. Enter in a value to be sent to the server when the button is selected. For example, male or female.
- Initial State. Select whether to have the button selected or not when the form first loads.
- Class. Click to apply CSS rules to the object directly or through a CSS Style Sheet.
