Radio button properties in the Binding tab

When you create a radio button exclusion group, the Binding tab presents data binding options that you can apply to the group. Options that are not specifically related to creating a data connection apply both to data bound to a data source and data saved to a file when the object is not bound to a data source.


Sets the name of the exclusion group.

Data Binding

Sets the default data-binding method:

Use name
Enables data merging and saving options. Data values are merged and stored implicitly according to Adobe data-merging rules.

Use global data
Associates a single data value with all objects that have the same name (see To define a global field).

New Data Connection
Starts the New Data Connection wizard. To define a connection using the wizard, see Create a data connection to an XML schema or Create a data connection to an OLE database.

No data binding
Disables data binding. Because the object will not capture or display merged data, any information associated with the object is not written as output when the form data is saved/submitted.

Specify Item Values

Lets you specify custom On values for each radio button in the exclusion group. The value of each radio button in the group must be unique compared to the values of all other radio buttons in the group.

When this option is not selected, the On values will match the caption for the radio button. When this option is selected, the default values are sequential integers starting at “1” for the first radio button in the group. See To assign On values to radio buttons.

Import/Export Bindings

Sets an import/export binding for a WSDL data connection. See Create a data connection using a WSDL file.
