I have created a custom "_pdf_attachment.php" file, and I am looking for a way to display the NAME rather than the VALUE of the radio selection:
So in an example below, I would prefer to display the word "Agree", rather than "5"

EXAMPLE:
0;<span>Agree</span>;5
0;<span>Unsure</span>;3
0;<span>DON’T Agree</span>;0

I am currently using the script below to retrieve those values. And from what I could find in the forum, I believe the "_FF_DATA_VALUE" needs to be altered to some degree ( as mentioned HERE ). Although a solution was no explicitly mentioned. Any help would be appreciated.

if (count($xmldata)){
   foreach ($xmldata as $data) {
      $value = nl2br(htmlentities(substr(is_array($data[_FF_DATA_VALUE]) ? implode('|',$data[_FF_DATA_VALUE]) : $data[_FF_DATA_VALUE],0,10000), ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8'));
      switch($data[_FF_DATA_NAME]){
         case 'score01':
          $score01 = $value;
          break;
        case 'score02':
          $score02 = $value;
          break;
}
    }
}

Hi,

please do the following:

1) add hidden input element to your form (in this hidden input element you will store name of selected radio button).
P.S: If you have for example two radio button then add two hidden input element

2) then go to your radio button->Advanced->Actionscript->check Custom->check Change and put:
function ff_nameofradiobutton_action(element, action)
{
    switch (action) {
        case 'change':
vals = '';
          opts = JQuery("[name=\"ff_nm_nameofradiobutton[]\"]");
          for (o = 0; o < opts.length; o++)
          if (opts[o].checked)
          {
               vals = opts[o].value;
          }
if(vals=='5') {
ff_getElementByName('nameofhiddeninput').value="Agree";
}
else if(vals=="3") {
ff_getElementByName('nameofhiddeninput').value='Unsure';
}
else {
ff_getElementByName('nameofhiddeinput').value="DONT Agree";
}
break;
        default:;
    } // switch
} // ff_nameofradiobutton_action
Please replace:
-nameofradiobutton with name of your radio button (not title)
-nameofhiddeninput with name of your hidden input (not title)
-3,5,0 is value of your radio button
-I added titles which will be stored in hidden input on each value

3) then go to pdf_attachment.php and when you want to show name of selected radio button call hiddeninput in which is stored selected label of radio button:
if (count($xmldata)){
   foreach ($xmldata as $data) {
      $value = nl2br(htmlentities(substr(is_array($data[_FF_DATA_VALUE]) ? implode('|',$data[_FF_DATA_VALUE]) : $data[_FF_DATA_VALUE],0,10000), ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8'));
      switch($data[_FF_DATA_NAME]){
         case 'nameofhiddeninput':
          $score01 = $value;
          break;
        
}
    }
}
again, nameofhiddeninput is name of your hiddeninput element (not title)

I hope I explained it well

If you need more help, please let me know

Tihana

Hello,
I appreciate the work -around, but this simply won't work in my case as there are over 80 radio buttons in my questionnaire , and what amounts to almost tripling the overhead of the script, it would become unmanageable.

Below are other threads that seems to be unanswered looking for a similar function.

*also: would it be considered the "Label" or "Name" data
ie
0;Label;DabataseValue

Hi,

I will test it now everything and come back to you with solution for this

Please give me some time

update: I compare name with name of radio group, and then instead of value it always show the title, but a problem is that it shows name of radio button, not name of each selection in radio.
I need to check this deeper

Thank you for looking into this.

Alternatively, I've been thinking about a different approach of possibly getting the Label.

The majority of the radio groups follow a similar structure for values, ie:

0;Agree;5
0;Unsure;3
0;DON’T Agree;0

Would it be more reasonable to simply do a string replacement for the values when the pdf is created? I'm not quite sure how to structure that?

<td><?php echo $score01; ?></td>
...
<td><?php echo $score82; ?></td>

Hi,

I wasn't here over the weekend so this is the reason why I didn't come back to you.

A problem is that it always show title of radio group, when I modified the code, instead of title of each radio button.

I will continue work on this in the morning, because it is late now and I need to rest a bit :)
