I am not a programmer and trying to learn how to work with PDF forms, thank you in advance for your time and concederation. The reason I am wanting to use Radio buttons over checkboxes is is preparation for scanning the form to poplate a database at a later date,

 

I am looking to toggle a Radio button when a numeric value is met in a Text Field.

     IF "Text Field" == "1", (toggle "Radio Button" ON), ELSE (toggle "Radio Button" OFF

 

Thanks for reading, the more detail the better as I am learning.

Still having trouble grasping this concept... My text field is named ProNumPos1My Radio button is named ProNumRow1Col1Radio Button Choice named ProR1C1 Under the Validate Tab for ProNumPos1 the option for Run custom validation script reads.     this.getField("Radio Button").value = event.value == "1" ? "ProR1C1" : "Off"; When I bring the form into a Firefox browser window and enter 1 into the field the Radio button does not toggle from empty to fill.

You can use this as 'Validation' script of "Text Field":

this.getField("Radio Button").value = event.value == "1" ? "Choice1" : "Off";

Where "Choice1" is radio button choice, so change it to whatever you have set as choice.

My text field is named ProNumPos1

My Radio button is named ProNumRow1Col1

Radio Button Choice named ProR1C1

 

Under the Validate Tab for ProNumPos1 the option for Run custom validation script reads.

     this.getField("Radio Button").value = event.value == "1" ? "ProR1C1" : "Off";

 

When I bring the form into a Firefox browser window and enter 1 into the field the Radio button does not toggle from empty to fill.

You didn't change radio button name, try this:

this.getField("ProNumRow1Col1").value = event.value == "1" ? "ProR1C1" : "Off";

Depending on browser and application you open it with it may not work.
