Container as Radio Button...?

Is it possible to use a container field as a sort of single radio button?

What I mean by this is; I currently have calculated fields to show a 'star' rating - 0 to 5.

I use a drop-down for the initial number and this is then translated via a container (6 global) to show a graphic of corresponding 'stars'

What would be cool is to just click the container and let the 'stars' advance until you reach the desired 'rating' - any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Frank.

Okay, i didn't catch a lot of how you're doing it at the moment, but I'd use three fields and one script to acheive this...

First Field, Repeating Global Container Field, 6 repetitions.

Rep 1 stores image for zero stars, Rep 2 stores image for one stars etc up to six.

Second Field, Rating -- Just a number field.

Third Field, Calculation, result container, calculation being: firstField[secondField]

Finally, the script that you can attach to your third field i.e. your container:

Set Field[ SecondField ;

Case( SecondField = 6 or IsEmpty( SecondField ) ; 1 ; secondField + 1 )

]

Sorry did not read close enough, here's what I think your looking for.

Thanks Rod! Near-perfect - my first rating needs to be zero (5 stars blanked), using a zero in the calc doesn't seem to work though...

Maybe I need something like ?

Have you thought about trying to modify one of the example files that were posted.

I just looked at the one comment posted, and it would be easy to modify it to 6 stars.

Change the value list by adding 6 to the list

Go into define fields and change the gStarsR to 6 Repetitions

Go into layout mode and click on gStarsR field and change it to 6 repetitions

Go into Browse mode and copy and paste 6 star into the last repetition.

The solution that Comment has posted should work for your needs. However, there was a thread on here a few years ago asking about a netflix type star images that I posted to. It probably is not the exact solution that you are looking for, but it might give you some ideas or clarify things for you.
