Thanks -- yes I had seen that and followed the instructions, but sadly it made no difference.
Unfortunately seems like you cant do that with radio component. You may just create a textField and place it next to the radio component as a workaround, or, use AS3 which is much easier.
Yes, I hadn't considered the option of updating it to AS3 - will give it a look.
I am currently using textfields, but want the ability to click on the text to select the radio.
