How to create a radio button on Lotus Notes


Radio buttons created in IBM Domino Designer for Lotus Notes offer an on or off selection in a form where you require the user to select an option from a list of responses. They are useful for surveys and simple questionnaires where you require a "Yes", "No" or "Don't Know" type of answer.

Create a new form in Domino and click the "Controls" tab at the top of the page. Select "Other" from the drop down menu to opens the "Core Controls" box. Select “Radio button group” from the “Core Controls” box and click the "OK" button at the bottom of the box.

Click on the "Properties" tab at the top of the screen and choose "Radio Button Controls." Type the name and label of your radio button into the two separate fields to the right. If you wish to include your new button in a pre-existing group of buttons, click "Options" and enter the name in the "Radio Group Name" box.

Select the "Style" tab under the "Properties" tab and create the look of your new radio button. Change the font, colour and background as required to suit your page. When you're happy with the result, click "OK" to save your newly created button.
