Hello,

Request some help on lotus notes radio buttons. There  are  3 radio buttons per row and a total of 13 rows. ( See attached)

 I have two  issues.
1. Enforce user to only choose one radio button from the three radio buttons in any particular row.
2. Radio buttons seem to change state when selecting radio buttons on other rows. i.e you select a radio button on row one, move down to the next row select the radio button from row two  and the previous selected radio button from row one Occasionally dissappears.

Is this Notes or browser??

Your point 2 seems strange to me. Most likely you have either default formulas that are wrong, or Input Translation formulas, and/or you activate a Refresh fields on keyword change that results in a faulty calculation.  I suppose you created the first field and then copied/pasted it to the other lines? To be handled with care... ;-)

Some tips:
- in calculations, you can use @ThisField to refer to the current field
- and @ThisValue to get the current field's value

If you use those two, you can normally copy/paste fields

Oh, and point 1 is implicit in the Notes client: use just ONE field per line, let it have 3 possible values. The user can only select one button.

If you want to show your buttons like you did above, still in the Notes client of course, you might try to set the colour of a field to white-on-white, and values of 1, 2 and 3, so only a minimum of space will be taken.

If it's for a browser, you'd have to handle the lot with JavaScript. Not easy at all...

In HTML: radio buttons are behaving like they are in the same group if they have the same ID.

Can you send a source of the generated web page?

Again, Notes or Web?? Judging from the image you posted it's Notes, but I'm not sure.

If it's indeed Notes, you won't be able to get rid of the labels completely. Do like I suggested before:
- in the Field Properties box:
- labels 1,2 and 3 are OK
- don't use inset as a Border style, set it to None (as for Question 1)
- set the colour to white on white (foreground = background, hence invisible)
- I assume you already set it to 3 columns wide, which is OK
- now use the Spacing Across property to produce a wider display, e.g. set it to 300%
