starting a script based on a checkbox

I have created a script that will insert a picture in a field depending on the entry into a checkbox field. I need for the user to click on the checkbox and for the checkbox to check (or uncheck)and the script to run. I thought about modifying the script so that it checks the checkbox too, but that doesn't work since I need the script to run based on the entry that is in the checkbox already.

I have tried making the checkbox a button, grouping the checkbox and a button but I can't get both actions to occur. Any suggestions on how to get the script to run and check the check box?

Sounds like to me you need to create a script that will check the check boxes default values.

If you create a script that say's something like:

If "check box" = "", then set the value to: "something (checked)";

<<< Run the script here that you want to run when it is CHECKED! >>>

Else if "check box = "something (checked)", then set the value to: "";

<<< Run the script that you want to run when it is NOT CHECKED (if any).

The button that runs this script would sit OVER the check box, as a "Mask". So the user never really checks the "Check Box". They are just clicking on a button that is doing all of the checking.

I hope this helps.
