Radio Button Tool

The Radio Button tool displays a mutually exclusive option in an app or macro. The resulting value, True (ticked) or False (not ticked), is passed to downstream tools.

Example below illustrates a radio button group from the Sample, Clean_Parse_Phone_Fields_Disable_Tool_Containers.yxwz. In this example the App Consumer must choose to Parse all or only Parse formatted records. They can only choose one option or the other.

In the example above, the first radio button, 'Parse all records,' has a List Box question nested beneath it. To assign a group relationship, use the Up/Down arrows found on the Layout view of the Interface Designer. A question that is below a Radio Button question will become nested inside a Radio Button Group if it is moved up one time.
