Multiple Choice

The Multiple Choice types allow you to input your choices using the Edit Values dialog box. You can choose from three multiple choice types, Multiple Choice (with Radio boxes), Multiple Choice (with Dropdown) and Multiple Choice (with Checkboxes). Multiple choice radio buttons allow the user to select one option from a list of radio buttons. The multiple choice drop down menu allows the user to select one option from a drop down menu and the multiple choice checkboxes allow the user to select one or more check boxes.

Specifying Options in Multiple Choice Fields

So far in the examples above, data has been feed into the fields as titles. But sometimes one needs to pass a different value than the title. This is possible by separating a title and a value with a pipe (|) character. For example,
Option 1|val1
Option 2|val2
..........

Another common requirement is to have the options populate from a database table. This is possible through the use of My Tokens. Create a token that returns a string formatted as above.
