When adding fields to a document, there might be times when you want to let your recipient select options on the document and you might not be sure if you should use check boxes or radio buttons for the options.
Use the following guidelines to help determine when to use check boxes or radio buttons in a document:
- Use check boxes in situations where a recipient can select one or more options from a list of options. Check boxes can also be used in cases where you just need a simple way to have a recipient select a single option.
- Use radio buttons in situations where a recipient can only select one option from a list of options.
You can have both check boxes and radio buttons in the same document. Check boxes can be placed individually or in groups, while radio buttons can only be placed in groups.
Note: Depending on how your document is laid out, you might want to use a Drop Down tag instead of a group of radio buttons. Radio buttons can become cumbersome when creating a lot of groups, in which case a drop down with all applicable information might be easier depending on the form you are working with.
