    Unselect radio button via Condition

    Asked by HRMink on March 25, 2014 at 02:18 PM

    Is there a way to unselect a radio button? Once it's selected it can only be changed to another option in the same question. However it cannot be unselected. 

    unselect radio clear radio

    I'm afraid there is not.

    For now you have two options (perhaps more upon further consideration) to overcome this:

    1. Use the Checkboxes instead:

    Those can be unselected.

    2. Add a 'Reset Form' button:

    This will reset all results on the form - Including the radio button selections.

    Let us know if this helps.

    Yeah may have to swap out all the radio buttons for checkboxes. Thank you! You guys provide prompt support and I'm very appreciative.

    You can actually use the Conditions and "Update a form field value" to output to your radio button field a value that does not exist.  For example I have a radio button that has "Yes" "No" options and if based on another fields condition if I set the output to 0 it will clear the radio button selection.

    That worked for me..  :-)

    @sdmform 

    You're right. This is now possible since radio and check boxes has been recently added in the update a form field value condition. I believe this wasn't available the time my colleague replied to @HRMink.

    Thank you anyway for your workaround. That's greatly appreciated. :)
