Radio Buttons from Data Values

Top  Previous  Next

 

Radio Buttons can be useful when users must choose from a small number of values.  Unlike a drop down list, all of the radio button options are visible all of the time.  Radio buttons are particularly useful when there is a small set number of possible options.. like Yes/No or Male/Female or MasterCard/Visa/Amex.

 

To Make Radio Button From Data Values:

 

1. Click on the Item Editor button (btn_item_editor_008) on the toolbar
