    I am trying to use some widget to use fancy image check boxes (morning slot) and (afternoon slot).  There is no way in that widget to assign values to the selection.

     

    But I can show or hide a number field based on the selection. Is there a work around to allow me to add a value to the morning slot selection to a calculation field?

     

    One thought was to put the value in a hidden field.  But first I dont want to show it if they select it.  And two the calculation field adds it no matter if it is hidden or not. Thanks

    A workaround that I can think of is using conditional logic to set a different value on a textbox (hidden if you want to) depending on the selection of the radio button widget.

    Then you can use the value of the textbox in your calculation tool.
