Mapping to Radio Buttons

When mapping to a radio button field in your PDF, it’s important to make sure you’re sending the radio button’s Radio Button Choice setting from Gravity Forms to Fillable PDFs to ensure it gets selected.

How To Find The Radio Button Choice Setting

Adobe Acrobat Radio Button Properties Dialog

To find the radio button choice setting of your PDF radio button field, first open your PDF template in Adobe Acrobat and enter Prepare Form mode. Next, double click on the radio button field (or right click and select Properties) to open the Radio Button Properties window.

Then, click on the Options tab. You can then view and change the Radio Button Choice setting for the radio button field.

Preparing Your Gravity Forms Field

Now that we know the PDF radio button field’s radio button choice setting, we need to setup our Gravity Forms field to use the same value.

For Checkbox or Radio Button Gravity Forms fields, click the Show Values checkbox. Then, for the field choice that pairs with your PDF radio button field, set the choice value to the radio button choice setting.

Next, map that Gravity Forms field from the previous step to your PDF radio button field. When the user selects that choice when filling out the form, the radio button field will be selected in the generated PDF.
