Livecycle Designer 7.0 - How do I limit amount of checkboxes in a form's multiple choice question?

Avatar

Level 1

Hello,

I am using Livecycle Designer 7.0 and I am making a form. I have a question that has multiple check boxes that can be answered - 10 in fact. But I only want the user to check off the top three of all ten choices as pertains to their top desires of those choices. They can only check off three checkbox choices - how do I limit their ability to only check three of those options off and not any more within that group of 10? I have grouped them together into a subform but that evidentially isn't the answer.

Help please?

Hi,

Here is an example: http://assure.ly/omsURE.

Checkout the script in the layout:ready event of the subform. Note that all of the checkboxes have the same name and that I use FormCalc to maximise the benefit of the same names using the wildcard: Checkbox1[*].

This example limits the selection to 2, but it should give you a direction.

Hope that helps,

Niall

This forum is for the Adobe FormsCentral  (formscentral.adobe.com) which is a service that allows you to create,  collect and analyze data using an online web form. You should ask  Designer related form questions in the Designer forums: http://forums.adobe.com/community/livecycle/livecycle_es/livecycle_des igner_es

I'll move your post to that forum so you don't need to retype it. They can help you out...
