SC3.0 Visible Vs. Invisible!?!

SC3.0 Visible Vs. Invisible!?!

SC3.0 Visible Vs. Invisible!?!

I have a field on my format which is invisible.
If a user selects "unsatisfied" from my three listed radio buttons (Very Satisfied, Satisfied & Unsatisfied), I would like my field to become visible.
I know that I can set the "visible Condition" , but how do I tell the field to be visible when the radio button is selected?
Does it have to do with the state of the radio button?
I'm trying things like:

etc. but so far, nothing works!
Anybody offer any advice?

RE: SC3.0 Visible Vs. Invisible!?!

There is a field in the radio button properties called "Value" that you have to set.  The way radio buttons work is that you can have multiple buttons with the same Input and different things in Value.

If this is just a single button that you want either on or off (if the person is unsatisfied or not), then a checkbox might be more appropriate.  With a checkbox, you should be pointing it to a logical field in the dbdict, with a radio button, you can point it to a character, value, date/time, etc.

Thanks chrishaw,

That work a treat. I "bound" each of the radio buttons to the same field ("Satisfied"), then just made each fields "Value" dictate the selection.

This also allowed me to make an additional field visible if the [satisfied]="Unsatisfied" value was true.

Cool stuff!

Thanks again
