I've place two check boxes adjacent to each other, "Wellness" and "Tobacco". User can check one, both, or none. The default is unchecked. I also have a text field that, if Wellness or Tobacco are checked, "Claiming the wellness credit" and/or "Claiming non-Smoker Credit".
Everything works fine, until it doesn't.
When I check the Wellness box, the message appears (good!). But, when I check the Tobacco box, the Wellness message and Wellness check disappears. Same happens if I first check Tobacco, as well. I can then re-check the newly empty check box and both boxes remain checked with their respective messages - until I move to the next, different item and both check boxes empty out again. Plus, I have a button, Calculate!, that runs all calculable form fields. This, too, empties the check boxes.
I need for both boxes to remain checked and return a value of 1.
It's hard to say what's going on without seeing the form. If you can post it online somewhere, we can take a look.
Thank you for responding.
I think I've resolved the issue. I had used the form wizard to initialize the PDF for editing the fields. The document ended up having 50 or so inert "form fields" that were not really needed (or fields, for that matter). After discarding them my check boxes now work.
Not sure why. Nonetheless, I'm happy with the outcome.
