Hi All, 
Is there a way, if the text field is triggered, to indicate the product chosen with a colour button or check box?

InDesign doesn't have all the features for PDF-forms. This is just instrument to do some design-template. All other things for forms you need to programming in Acrobat Pro after.

Remember, never say you can't do something in InDesign, it's always just a question of finding the right workaround to get the job done. © David Blatner

Yes, there are ways to do that kind of thing, but not using native InDesign features. In Acrobat, post export, much more is possible using Acrobat features and Javascript. But generally, depending on your plans for deployment of the conent, "interactive PDF" may be a risky platform. There are many possible user-side scenarios in which various features won't work, and there's no way you as the author can provide for all of them.
