Unselecting Multiple Choice Buttons

  1. I created a from using the Multiple choice button.
    I added my choices and publish the form.
    when i go to the form in a page and select Option one, it works, and of course it works when I change my mind and selection Option two.
    But If I want to change my mind and not select any option I cant seem to "unselect" and have a blank form.
    what am I missing here?

  2. Multi-select Radio button functionality is handled by the browser. There is no way to unselect a radio button from a group of radio buttons after one has been selected. You can change which one is selected, but you can't deselect them entirely. This isn't Gravity Forms functionality but how browsers handle radio buttons.

  3. You can do this with some scripting. A quick search turned up a jQuery snippet that will probably do what you want.

    You can probably search and find others if you're feeling adventurous.

  4. Somewhat related but not really: is there a way to make no option the default after you've created a form, and then gone back and decided that you do not want a default option?

    For example, I created a form with radio buttons and I made one of the options the default. But now I want to remove that default. Can I do that without deleting the field and re-adding it? If I delete the field, I lose the data that's been entered.

    Thanks.

  5. I believe right now the only way you could do that would be to delete the option (not the field, the individual radio button option) and then add it again. There is no unselecting the radio button as it is now, which is how radio buttons work by default.

  6. If you wanted to have a way to deselect all the options, I suppose you could add another option which says something like 'None'.

  7. Kevin, excuse my ignorance, but where do you input the code you have listed on your 12robots.com site? I'd like to be able to deselect & reselect radio buttons but I can't figure out where to put the code. Thanks.
