Validation to radio button group

Post by protectourlands » Tue Apr 07, 2020 4:15 pm

I'm trying to require that one radio button of a mutually exclusive group be checked, "Check One Required". In help > Radio Button it states to go to Form Validation for more information. When I go to Help > Form Validation, there is no help for radio buttons.

Is it possible to require a check in the group?

Radio buttons also have a 'Validation' section in the properties.

Yes but I don't want to require any single button specifically, just require any one button of the group be selected.

So, if I choose to require a button in the group, won't it require that button be chosen?

OK I see that it works. When you group radio buttons the validation applies to the group and not individual buttons. Exactly what I need. Thank you Pablo.

It might be helpful to update the Help with this info. The radio button help states validation help for radio buttons is available in that page but it is not.

Thank you again.

Best wishes
