InfoPath 2007 form: Disabling checkboxes after five are checked

I am wondering if there is a way, without code, to disable checkboxes in my form once five prior have been selected. In other words, there are nine checkbox fields but the user should only select five of nine. Is there any way to disable the remainder of the checkboxes once five have been selected through rules?

I would rather not have to set up a rule(s) per checkbox as this could get rather hairy. I am just looking to disable checkboxes after five are selected.

Are you trying to do that after ANY five are selected, or after a specific five?

Just simply after five are selected - doesn't matter which ones...

Yah I agree.

You can also have a rule on each that decrements the check count when they are unselected if needed.

Then have all of your conditions on the check count value.

I really don't know if there's a more efficient solution to this question but I can say that this answer worked. Thanks for the creativity - it was a little work but does exactly what I need it to do!
