Getting radio buttons to work

Thread began 11/25/2009 8:03 am by alan388364 | Last modified 11/25/2009 5:41 pm by alan388364 | 1201 views | 4 replies |

Getting radio buttons to work

I am using UE to send back an existing form using Cdosys. The form has a number of radio selection buttons. I can get the text fields ie: name to send back the correct response by inserting the binding, but how do I get the radio buttons to work? Do I "insert" or "bind" the buttons? I have tried both methods and the forms either do not send back the radio button information at all or all the buttons come back filled in.

HELP PLEASE!!!!

Thanks

you should use the bindings for the radio buttons from the bindings panel.

If you are not getting a value, make sure that the radio buttons in the form have a checked value:

<input type="radio" name="RadioGroup1" value="radio" id="RadioGroup1_0" />


if there is no value, there will not be anything to display in the email.

radio buttons not working

Thank you Jason for your reply,

I have tried various ways of attaching bindings but I am still having problems with radio group buttons. The following code is from a grid
<tr>
<td align="center" bgcolor="#FFCC00" class="large">Custom Back Plate Colour</td>
<td align="center" bgcolor="#FFCC00" class="large"><input type="radio" name="Custom Back Plate Colour" value="Bronze" id="CustomBackPlateColour_0" /></td>
<td align="center" bgcolor="#FFCC00" class="large"><input type="radio" name="Custom Back Plate Colour" value="Silver" id="CustomBackPlateColour_1" /></td>
<td align="center" bgcolor="#FFCC00" class="large"><input type="radio" name="Custom Back Plate Colour" value="Gold" id="CustomBackPlateColour_2" /></td>
<td align="center" bgcolor="#FFCC00" class="large"><input type="radio" name="Custom Back Plate Colour" value="Black" id="CustomBackPlateColour_3" /></td>
<td align="center" bgcolor="#FFCC00" class="large"><input type="radio" name="Custom Back Plate Colour" value="Gunmetal" id="CustomBackPlateColour_4" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>

this gives the result shown on the attached image. The CustomBackPlateColour_0 to 2 are wrong I know. The next two show that when I selected "Gold" as the colour this was repeated in all the colours, What I am aiming for is the word "yes" to appear under the colour with the other colours blank.

Help appreciated.

you can not have spaces in form element names:
name="Custom Back Plate Colour"

is an invalid name.

Radio Buttons now working

Thank you for your reply Jason,

I will try that but I got the form to work correctly without do that by removing the columns from the table and only putting the binding in once. That way I only got one reply, not the same answer in each column. But I will try making the changes you suggest using a table and see how that works.

thanks again.
