We are creating a pdf with a filable menu.  If the meal choice is checked it will be added to the total.  I want to link a dollar value to check box and the check box to a Text Field that totals the Check Boxes.  I also have 2 Radio Buttons that I need "turned on" if Check Box is selected.

If you don't want confusion with rb and checkbox, as Mouse UP event of "Check Box10" use this:if(event.target.value == "Off"){ this.getField("Banquet").display = display.hidden; this.getField("Banquet").value = "Off";} else this.getField("Banquet").display = display.visible;This will hide radio buttons until checkbox is checked and reset them.(for first time only set rb hidden manually or just check and uncheck checkbox)

Check Box1, Check Box2, Check Box3....Check Box10  There are 10 checkboxes.

 

Yes, each Check Box is a meal and I would like the value of the checkmarked meal to be added to the total in the Text Field named TOTAL

 

Check Box10 is associated to text Awards Banquet

There are two Radio Buttons name Banquet with Radio Button Choice: Beef and Chicken (whickever Radio Button is chosen needs to become the value for the Banquet Check Box10 to be added to the TOTAL)

also change "Radio button choice" to be price for that button and then use this script

as "Custom calculation script" of field "Total"

var total = 0;
var rb = 0;
if(this.getField("Check Box10").valueAsString != "Off" && this.getField("Banquet").valueAsString != "Off")
rb = Number(this.getField("Banquet").value);
for (var i=1; i<=9; i++) {
if (this.getField("Check Box"+i).valueAsString != "Off")
total += Number(this.getField("Check Box"+i).value);
}
event.value = total+rb;

That works perfect thank you!

 

How can I make the Radio Buttons for Chicken $50 (Banquet) or Beef $65 (Banquet) only active for selection if the Banquet (Check Box10) is Checked?  Also, one RB is always checked how can I make the uncheckable? 

 

Currently, the radio buttons each have an associated value that goes to the event total but does not get included if the banquet box is not checked.  So if they select a meal option but forget to check the banquet box then their total will be wrong.

This will hide radio buttons until checkbox is checked and reset them.

(for first time only set rb hidden manually or just check and uncheck checkbox)
