I have a list of 12 items that only one need be selected. It works best as being either in a List Box or a list of Radio Buttons. The issue I would like to solve is with respect to the subsequent merging (with other lists) of the selected list item. Five of the items fit best at the end of the merge whereas seven fit best at the beginning. I have thought to split the list into separate 5 and 7 items however I would like it such that only one item of the 12 is selected. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I don't quite follow what you mean... Do you want to create two separate lists, but only allow one selection in both of them? If so, then you can add a script to each field that resets the other field when a selection is made in the former.
Would the JS be the same for either a List Box or Radio Button?
Yes, although I don't really understand why you would need to do that for a radio-button group, which can be placed anywhere on the page, unlike a list box field, which is a single rectangular field...
I will try the 2 separate list boxes and see how that works out. Could you please provide me with the script that would do the job?
I see in every post you are asking people to do scripts for you, in one of your post out member gave you like 20 scripts and you just keep asking for more.
You can use something like this as the custom validation script of each one of the list box fields:
if (event.value) this.resetForm(["Name of the other field"]);
Sorry, forgot this type of field doesn't have a Validation event... Use the Selection Change event.
You will have to add a blank default item to each field for it to work, though.
