Adding radio buttons

Adding radio buttons

The second question on the feedback form requires a yes-or-no answer. You’ll create radio buttons for that question. Radio buttons let the user select one—and only one—option from a set of options.

  1. If you’re in Preview mode, click Edit in the Common Tools toolbar to return to Form Editing mode.
  2. Go to page 1 of the form.
  3. Choose Radio Button from the Add New Field menu.
  4. Click the circle next to the word “Yes” after question 2.
  5. Select Required Field.
  6. Type Yes in the Radio Button Choice box.
  7. Type on time in the Group Name box.
  8. Click Add Another Button at the bottom of the dialog box. Your pointer becomes a box again.
  9. Click the circle next to “No.”
  10. Type No in the Radio Button Choice box, and confirm that the group name is “on time.”
  11. Click Preview in the Custom Tools toolbar. For the second question, click Yes, and then click No. Notice that you can select only one radio button at a time.
