    Radio Button Formatting

      Radio Button Formatting

      Post

      I created a field with 5 Radio Buttons (labeled 1 through 5) so the user can rate the record from one to 5.

      Is there any way to:

      1) Replace the radio button circles with a picture image or icon (e.g. stars, check marks, etc.) that the user could click and they would highglight instead of just filling in an empty circle the way it now works? I just wanted to customize the circles to be something related to the content of the database that was also more personal for the user.

          You can if you use layout text set up as buttons with a script that enters data into your field. Conditional formatting on the layout text can highlight the text by changing the fill color or can change the text color. Conditional formatting can also make layout text disappear by changing the font size to 500.

          Here's a sample script:

          Set field [YourTable::RadiobuttonField ; Get ( ScriptParameter ) ]

          With that one line script, you can set up all the buttons with the same perform script option, but passing a different value as the script parameter.
