Creating a Report Generator Report - Adding Radio Buttons to the Specification Window

This page describes using radio buttons to control searches in Report Generator reports.


Radio buttons are useful when you want to offer a number of options in the specification window of a Report Generator report, out of which only one can be selected by the user when printing the report. For example, you can use radio buttons when you want to offer different sort order options, or some search options that are not compatible with each other.

Radio buttons should be grouped together in the specification window. When a user chooses a radio button option, all other options in the same group will be switched off automatically. A group of radio buttons controls a single variable. When the user selects a radio button, the variable will be set to a pre-defined value. A formula should then test for the value of the variable, and execute a search or a sort depending on that value.
