Bind checkbox and radio groups

Bind checkbox and radio groups

Are there examples anywhere on how to bind a checkbox and a radio group to enable them to retain their values until a sucessful form submission?
i.e. if validation fails on form submission e.g. on an incorrect captcha being entered, I want the checkbox to retain it's value and a radio group to retain it's value.

is it a single checkbox? or a checkbox group? a check box group will require some hand coding. For a single checkbox though, select it, then click the dynamic button in the property inspector. Click the lightning bolt next to Check If and select the checkbox item from the Validated Entries collection. Set the Equal To option to the same as the checked value for the check box.

Radio button groups are very similar.

Thanks Jason,
It is a single checkbox and I have done as you said but the check box always reverts to the default value of "checked".
The radio buttons I have not attempted yet.

I can only get it to remember the checkbox state by having the "Initial State" set to 'unchecked'

If I set the Initial State to 'checked' - which is what I want - the checkbox always returns to 'checked' when I click submit (even if it was unchecked before I clicked submit)

the checkbox code should be:

php:
<input <?php if (!(strcmp((ValidatedField("SendInNameV3_156","OK to join miling list"))) {echo "checked=\"checked\"";} ?>   name="join_mail_list" type="checkbox" id="join_mail_list" value="OK to join miling list" />




you have a hard coded " checked="checked"" at the end that is overriding the dynamic setting.

Thanks Jason,
I will point out that the hard coded checked="checked" was put there by Dreamweaver (not me) to set the check box as "checked" when the page first opens - so other people might want to look for this if they have a similar problem.
