How to check/toggle a checkbox in script


Level 1

Simple question that I can't seem to find an answer to. I'm building a PDF form using LiveCycle. I have some radio buttons. When I select a particular radio button, I want it to also select/toggle a checkbox, called "checkbox1" for example. I assume that I need to do this in a script. How do I toggle a PDF form checkbox in Javascript?

form1.Body.RadioButton1::click - (javascript, client)

// Toggle form1.Body.checkbox1

but normally if the value of your checbox is 1 and 0, you can just use this :
