Not sure if this is possible. I've treid search but hven't found anything that would aloow me to do this.


I'm creating a form for on-boarding new publishers.


One of the sections is to indicate their geo-targeting preferences.


Choices are either Either World or 25-30 individual countries.


What I would like is to have either radio or check boxes such that if they check "Entire World" all the other radio buttons go blank and vice versa.


Is this possible?

    If you want to have multiple selections, you should use check-boxes, not


    And yes, it is possible to clear all the other fields when one of them is

    ticked, using a script.

    First, Radio Buttons work like the mechanical station selection buttons on a radio, you can only select one and that button can only be unselected by selecting another button.


    You want to us check boxes as one can have multiple selections, unselect by clicking again, and can create exclusionary groups either by a field naming convention or using JavaScript.


    You might want to experiment with the 2 types of buttons some with only one with the same name and others where multiple buttons or boxes share the same name and observe what happens.
