Two radio button groups merging into one, and I don't want that. How do I fix it?


Level 2

I have two sets of radio buttons that I want to be independent of each other. How do I do that?  Just to be clear... I have one set with two buttons.  The second set has six buttons.  They are independent of each other - they just happen to fall in line one right after the other.  LiveCycle keeps putting them together. 

I have very limited knowledge and am learning as I go.  Thanks for any help that you can give me.

Select the Radio button that you want to be independent of the other radio buttons, RIGHT click and choose Wrap in New Radio Button Group.

This way it can be selected along with other radio buttons..

One question here. If you want each radio button to be independent of each other, why not change them to Check Boxes instead of Radio Buttons.

If you look at the hierarchy, you will see that the eight radio buttons are in ONE exclusion group. This is why they are mutually exclusive.

In the hierarchy, select the six radio buttons are drag these out of the group. LC Designer will create a section exclusion group, so that the two sets will work independently.

Thanks so much!  That worked!!!  Woohooie!

I do need the radio buttons... the first set is a question with two options (radio buttons) where it needs to be one or the other.  Then, the second group is another question - this time with six options where only one should be able to be selected.  Again, radio buttons.

You just saved me HUGE aggreviation!  Thanks so much!!

In the Hierarchy, select the radio buttons that I want, and right click and select wrap in new radio button group.
