Make check box visible only if a specific option is checked

I have an option group that has 8 options. If the first option is selected, I would like two other check boxes to be visible. If the first option is not selected, then the two check boxes would be invisible.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Chris

Are you comfortable with VBA?

Say checkbox1 is your 'control' and checkbox4 and checkbox5 are your 'variables', you could use:

If me.checkbox1=true Then
me.checkbox4.enabled = True
me.checkbox4.enabled = True
else
end if

Open in new window


It is hard to say without verifying the source.

Thanks... unfortunately I am not that familiar with VBA. Can I put that code in an event for "After update"

Sorry... I am an idiot at this.

use the afterupdate event of the option group, say the name of the option group is "Frame1"

private sub frame1_afterupdate()

me.checkbox1.visible=me.frame1.value=1
me.checkbox2.visible=me.frame1.value=1


end sub

Note: set the visible property of the two check boxes to NO in the design view of the form

First, select the checkboxes that should be hidden and set the FormatVisible option to No.

Then select the control checkbox and go to Event > After Update ... button > Macro Builder.

Setup something similar to the following:

After Update Control

In most cases, you need to include BOTH sides of the condition.
If Me.fraSelection = 1 Then
    Me.chkFld1.Visible = True
    Me.chkFld2.Visible = True
Else
    Me.chkFld1.Visible = False
    Me.chkFld2.Visible = False
End If

Open in new window


Note that you need to check the value of the option group, NOT individual controls inside the option frame.

If you go with the macro (I don't think it is easier and I never use them), add the false option there.
