Radio Field


The Radio Field provides radio buttons only one of which may be selected.

Field Creation

  • The Label is based on the Title and appears in the output before the selected value.
  • Radio buttons are added one at a time, each with Text and Value. The Text appears in the output. The value is used in the data entry form and each must be different. The first item in the list should have the Text set to - Select - and its Value left empty. This allows for the field to be unset and so not appear in the output.
  • Use the drag icons to change the radio button list order.
