How can I can find the oCoords (field.rect) information for each check box in a check box group?
I'm only able to find the first set of coordinates. It seems that the function getNthFieldName is also seeing the entire checkbox group as 1 field. I tried to play around with exportValues and field names but I was never able to locate the .rect information for all exportValues.
I have to change hundreds of check box groups into radio buttons. I made a lot of progress thanks to this forum and older post but at the moment I can only create all the correct radio buttons at the location of the first checkbox group field. This means I have to manually drag and drop them to the correct field location.
In the example below you can see I can only find the location of 1 box even though there are 3
var fieldName = getField("Check Box Group"); fieldName.rect 279.6754150390625,313.5375061035156,297.6754150390625,295.5375061035156 fieldName.exportValues 1,2,3
Thank you Bernd but the site is Not found in the documentation. Widgets was the correct answer though.
You can use the link when you remove the characters after .htm
thank you, this worked and will be helpful in the future. I saw a lot of links in the forum I couldn't open before.
Each instance of radio buttons or checkboxes in a group is called a widget, and each has it's own Widget name.
So if there are 3 buttons in a radio button group named "MyCheck". The individual Widgets are named "MyCheck.0", "MyCheck.1", and "MyCheck.2"
wow, I should have asked this days ago. I just tried and it worked. This will save me countless hours of rearranging buttons on pdf forms.
