displaying subforms based on radio button on start-up


Not applicable
I am passing in xml that merges with xdp at runtime. This works fine expect for radio buttons. I have a radio group that has 3 radio buttons with values 1,2,3. In the xml if I pass in 2 for radio group, I expect the second radio button to be selected when xdp loads at runtime. Also, the selection of second radio button should display a subform and associated elements on that subform.

What event in the radio group should I use to make this work?

Hi Satish,

I have seen some funky behavior with radio buttons and dynamic subforms. Make sure you are testing with Acrobat or Reader version 7.0.5. Earlier versions have some know quirks with radio buttons and dynamic subforms. As for the radio button not populating when merged with data, I haven't seen that problem before in any version. If you can post your form somewhere, I'd be glad to have a look for you.
