Radio Button Question


The Digital Man
 Share

Recommended Posts

I have created a radio button set with the buttons numbered 1-10. But I have placed cute little pictures on top of each number beside the round circles of the radio buttons to indicate what each button represents.

 

When I click on a choice all of the numbers come to the top and the pictures disappear. But once I leave the field the pictures come back to the top covering the numbers. And the selected radio button remains darkened in.

 

Is there a way to keep this from happening? I want the pictures to stay on top all the time.

 

Thanks

Hi Digital Man!

 

Are you comfortable with script parameters? I have a technique in mind that would solve your dilemma, but it will require a script (just one) to set the values in your radio-button field.

 

Do you want to consider this approach?

Script parameters are not a problem. I'm using them extensively already in many of my scripts. Passing a parameter was a feature long overdue!!!

 

FYI: My college degree is in "Information Systems", programming option. So I'm definately familiar with programming concepts. FileMaker Pros scripting interface in fact aggravates me at times since I just want to write code and it won't let me just type away like in a word processor.

 

Anyway, I would be interested in your solution if it keeps the screen looking the way I want it too.

Great! I'm sure you're eminently qualified. I gotta run out for a little bit, but will post the technique this evening. I just wanted to make sure that using a script was okay for your interface ... it will circumvent the ability for your users to tab into the radio-button field. Check back around 8:00p Central.

Thanks!

 

Tabbing into the Radio Button area is not a concern for me. I expect the user to use the mouse and click on the one they want.

 

I will watch for it. I will be in here programming my little heart out this coming Sunday!

Hey, Randy:

 

Sorry, I got delayed a bit. The sample file's attached. Hope it works as advertised!:)

 

Of course, let me know if you run into problems or have any questions.

A pretty straightforward way around my problem. I guess I just couldn't see the forest for the trees. I kept thinking there must be a way to "LOCK" a field in place underneath a GRAPHIC.

 

But I guess by not going into the field at all works well too. :)
