      checkboxes and radio buttons

      Post

      I am using filemaker pro 11 advanced and want to create and use checkoxes and radio buttons. How do I create checkboxes, and also how do I get the radio buttons to work independently of each other? Basically I want when I click one radio button. it deselects the other one.

          Create a value list (File -> Manage -> Value Lists...).

          In layout mode click on the field and in the Inspector, Data Tab, select the option for Control Style to be Check Box (or Radio Button).

          Attach the value list you created to the field.  Format it to be the right shape on the layout.

          Radio buttons work by only allowing you to select one option at a time.  Check boxes allow multiple options to be checked.
