I have put together an adobe acrobat XI pro file with 60 radio buttons.
I want to have to each button add to a counter that outputs in a text box for each answer.

The I have each set of radio buttons call Guideline with a corresponding number to the question with only 2 answers yes and no


Guideline 1 check = yes ; Counteryes =+ 1 for each yes, display in a text box named Guideline Calculation Yes
Guideline 2 check no ; Counterno =+1 for each no, display in a text box named Guideline Calculation No

Create the two fields Counteryes and Counterno, and make them read-only. Now add a custom calculation script to the Counteryes field and use the following code:

var aRadioButtons = [ "Radio1", "Radio2", "Radio3", "Radio4" ];

// count the number of "Yes" and "No" selections
var numYes = 0;
var numNo = 0;

for (var i in aRadioButtons) {
    var f = this.getField(aRadioButtons[i]);
    if (f != null) {
        if (f.value == "Yes") {
            numYes++;
        }
        else if (f.value == "No") {
            numNo++;
        }
    }
}

// this is the "Counteryes" field
event.value = numYes;
this.getField("Counterno").value = numNo;

Open in new window


You of course have to modify the array with the radio button names to contain your 60 radio button groups that you are using.
