auto value radio or checkbox

Recommended Posts

hi all,

i hope i'm in the right place for this question.

is it possible in FMP 5 to set a default value to a radio box or checkbox. its a simple yes / no function and i recently added it but i need everything to be standard set to yes.

is that possible. and if it is so could someone tell me how?

thanks in advance

Radio buttons and check boxes are simply graphical representations of the TEXT that has been selected. So, if you have 'Yes' and 'No' as your options then the field will contain 'Yes' or 'No'.

You can use the auto-enter feature in the field definition to set the field to 'Yes' (or 'No'), then the ardio button/check box will be already marked.

Yes, by the autoenter feature under the field. Say you have an array of 5-6 checkboxes, and you wish to have box 2 and 4 checked in a newly created record. Then would the two values delimited by a pilcrow stuffed into the autoenter function be suffice.

Find those records that your want the values replaced. Once you have that found set, use a Replace Field Contents with calculated result using your formula.
