If i have a form with check boxes. Can I add a button that will display the boxes that the user selected on a new page?

For example, there are 10 check boxes and the user selects 5 of those boxes. Then they click a submit button. Just the information from those boxes would be displayed so they can print it. Is this possible? Any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated.

That is definitely possible.

Option 1: checkboxes are all named differently.

In the click event for the submit button, add some code like this...


if (cbChoice1 == "1") p2.tfChoice1.presence = "visible";


else p2.tfChoice1.presence = "hidden"; //can use "invisible" if preferred


if (cbChoice2 == "1")...


Option 2: checkboxes are named the same

In the click event for the submit button, add code like this...


var checkboxes = xfa.resolveNodes("cbChoice[*]");


var textfields = xfa.resolveNodes("p2.tfChoice[*]");


for (i=0; i<checkboxes.length; i++){


    if( checkboxes.item(i).rawValue == "1") textfields.item(i).presence = "visible";


    else textfields.item(i).presence = "hidden";


}

All of the checkboxes have different names. That being said will the top code re-display the text that is in the checkbox?

ex: If I had three choices below. The user selects "I think the color used looks fine." he then clicks a submit button and the code runs. Will it display "I think the color used looks fine."? or just the value I assigned that checkbox. (chkBx1)

○ The color red is what I would like to see.

○ I think the color used looks fine.

○ I would like to select my own color to use.
