New PDF Form Field: Check Box or  Radio Button Form Field

(See Example PDF and Example PDFill Project File  )

A check box field represents one or more check boxes that toggle between two states, on and off, when manipulated by the user with the mouse or keyboard.

A radio button field is a set of related buttons. Like check boxes, individual radio buttons have two states, on and off. A single radio button may not be turned off directly but only as a result of another button being turned on. Typically, a set of radio buttons have at most one button in the ON state at any given time; selecting any of the buttons automatically deselects all the others. Note: An exception occurs when multiple radio buttons with the export value in a field name have the same ON state. In that case, turning on one of the buttons turns on all of them.

If you want one check box or radio button in a group to be unchecked as another check box or radio button is checked, you should use the same field name. Furthermore, you need to use different export values to distinguish one choice from another.
