Hi plp, I'm having some trouble with radio groups in my forms app. I create the group with every button I need, but when I run the app it doesn't recognize the default value I assigned to it in the properties tab. I suppose I'm giving a wrong value, but I can't see the problem. The data type is Number, and I put 1 as default value, but it gives me error FRM-40212.
I have to assign the value directly in my PRE-FORM trigger, that's the only way it works. But I think I'm doing something wrong in the properties tab...

Thanks a lot for your help.

See u

Yes. Leave the Pre-Form trigger alone as it fires too early for most uses.

Please explain a bit more as to where you have the radio group - is it a control item or an item in a database block?

Please post the message as well as the error code, it saves us EACH having to search for the meaning. "FRM-40212: INVALID VALUE FOR FIELD <NameOfField>" is much more useful that just FRM-40212.

Check your datatype and the values you have specified for the readio group.

Have you tried to specify one of the values as 'null'?

Yes, it's inside a database block. One of the radios has value 1, and I assign that value to the group, but thast doesn't work, it says that the value is incorrect.
I'll try the null thing, thanks for your help.

What is the datatype of your item? Did you assign 1 or '1'? Please post your code. About 'null', I believe that radio group items don't LIKE to have an entry set to 'null'.

Please get back to us with the result of your testing.

With null value I don't get any result, it gives me error.
My item is a Number, and I assign the value 1, without '' (and I have a radio item with value 1 inside the group, obviously).

Thanks a lot for your help.

Please don't say things like "With null value I don't get any result, it gives me error." Tell us the number and description of that error.

I suggest simplifying your radio group so that it has only two 'radio buttons' and seeing if it works. When you get the simply one to work then you can expand it.
