    Radio Button if ( ) then selection

    Steven97217 Level 1

      Greetings:

       

      There are two people. Let's call them "husband" and "wife."

       

      Husband and wife could be petitioner or respondent.

       

      I'm trying to create a calculation to determine whether husband or wife is petitioner or respondent.

       

      It's easy enough to use a conditional (for the petitioner value)

       

      if (DropDownList = "husband") then

      $=HusbandFullName

      else

      $=WifeFullName

      endif

       

      But, I think it is easier for the user to have two radio buttons so they show the options, one labelled "Husband" and the other "Wife."

       

      I have created (formcalc, client, calculate) with a husband radio button  and a wife radio button in the same sub form set.

       

      if (PetitionerRB.HusbandRB == "1") then

      $= HusbandFullName

      else

      $=WifeFullName

      endif

       

      and this sets the husband or the wife to petitioner.

       

      However, I am having trouble setting the respondent. When I create this for the wife radio button, I do not get a value.

       

      To set wife as the petitioner:

       

      if (PetitionerRB.WifeRB == "1") then

      $= WifeFullName

      else

      $=HusbandFullName

      endif

       

      In fact, changing "1" to "2" also does not work.

       

      I'm obviously missing something about radio buttons in a sub form. Any help is greatly appreciated.

       

      Thank you in advance.
