Hi there,

I'm trying to create a form that we can use in the field when conducting inspection reports.

I need to have a selection of radio groups that are used for validation, however on the exports to PDF, I would like the value to show as the name of the radio button option selected, rather than it's value that validation uses.

0;Was not found;was_not_found
0;Was found - see item D1;was_found_see_item_d1

In the above example, I would need the validation to make the section D1 visible if the second option is selected, however on the PDF I would like it to say the nicer looking wording "Was found - see item D1" rather than the value of that selection "was_found_see_item_d1". I can get it to output the nicer looking text by doing the below, however this does not allow the element to be used in validation.

0;Was not found;Was not found
0;Was found - see item D1;Was found - see item D1

Does anyone know if this is possible, and how do I achieve this? I am somewhat familiar with creating the custom PDF to export, I am just not familiar enough to know what to use to get the nicer looking wording.

Thank you, your help is greatly appreciated.

yeah, it's possible.

If you check the pdf_attachment.php file you'll notice that $data has different indexes: _FF_DATA_TITLE, _FF_DATA_VALUE, _FF_DATA_NAME, _FF_DATA_TYPE....

I'd need to take a look at your pdf_attachment.php file so I can help you. It all depends on how you're outputting the data. It's only one or two additional lines. Basically, all you have to do is check if _FF_DATA_NAME is equal to the name of your element and for that element write out $data[_FF_DATA_TITLE] instead of value.

Get back to me with the info so we can resolve this.
