Hi I am using lotus domino designer 6.5. & have created a form with a radio button on it. The radio button has options which are quite long. When opening on notes client 6.5.4, the option value are not getting wrapped. Is there any way that we can wrap the options so that it does not come in a single line.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I have been unable to insert a line break in a radio button. I have tried using a formula and inserting @char(10), @char(13) and @newline, all to no avail. I also tried using {} instead of quotes and typing in a carriage return. That doesn’t work either.

I suggest you put long explanations in plain text and use abbreviated labels in the radio button.

    The only control you have on a radio button is how many columns your answers will fill. If you're trying to word wrap, I sugguest putting the button in a table, setting it to single column. If you don't want to see the table, remove the borders.

    1. Regarding setting the width of a radio button: in 6.5.3, at least, this is not possible except possibly on the web. 2. I have found that when using a long option in a table cell, the cell is expanded to fit the text instead of wrapping the text to fit the cell.

    I found one way of resolving this issue but seems quite lengthy & would have future maintenance problems. Creating 4 radio buttons(refresh on keyword change) to have grade value (A,B,C,D) & wrapped description to be given adjacent to the radio buttons. For making these radio button (4 in number) to be mutually exclusive would require a code to written which would run on document refresh. This code would work when a radio button is selected , which will in turn refresh the document. On document refresh previous selected(saved) value would be matched with the four buttons & subsequently deselect the other three. Is there any other method to acomplish this task? Or do we have a way to reduce the complexity of the above said method.

    I agree with the first respondent (Jack). It is not good UI or database design to have long strings of text as the options to store in a field. You can use text on the form, field help, hotspot popups, etc. to clarify the options, and you can use the field values to look up the desired text strings if needed in other parts of the application.
