Class FormRadioButton

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public final class FormRadioButton
    extends FormElement

    A type of form element representing a Radio Button, which can be either "checked" or "cleared" (on or off), in the same way as the HTML "radiobutton" input type. Unlike Checkboxes, at least one annotation for each Radio Button must be set.

    Here's an example showing how to add a set of RadioButtons to a form

       FormRadioButton ccard = new FormRadioButton();
       ccard.addAnnotation("Mastercard", page, 100, 100, 110, 110);
       ccard.addAnnotation("Visa",       page, 120, 100, 130, 110);
       ccard.addAnnotation("Amex",       page, 140, 100, 150, 110);
       form.addElement("CreditCard", ccard);

    and here's how to determine which of those values is checked

       Form form = pdf.getForm();
       FormRadioButton ccard = (FormRadioButton)form.getElement("CreditCard");
       String value = ccard.getValue();   // May be null if none are checked
    • Method Detail

      • isRadiosInUnison

        public boolean isRadiosInUnison()
        Return true if the "RadiosInUnison" flag is set, which means fields with the same value are all turned on or off in unison (if one is chcked, they are all checked).
      • setRadiosInUnison

        public void setRadiosInUnison​(boolean flag)
        Set the value of the "RadiosInUnison" flag, as returned by isRadiosInUnison()
      • setValue

        public void setValue​(String value)
        Mark the specified annotation for the Checkbox/RadioButton as selected, and unselect any others. The specified value must be the the value of one of this field's WidgetAnnotation objects, otherwise an an IllegalArgumentException is thrown.
        value - the value of the annotation to select, or null to turn them all off
      • setDefaultValue

        public void setDefaultValue​(String value)
        Set the default value for this field. Fields revert to their default value when the PDFAction.formReset() action is invoked. See setValue(java.lang.String, java.lang.String) for a discussion of which values are valid.
        value - the value of the annotation to select, or null to turn them all off
      • getValue

        public String getValue()
        Get the value of this field. This will be the value of the selected RadioButton/Checkbox annotation, or null if no annotation is selected.
        the value of the selected annotation, or null if none is selected
      • getDefaultValue

        public String getDefaultValue()
        Return the default value of this field, or null if no default value exists.
        the default value of this field, or null if none is specified
      • getOptions

        public Map<String,​WidgetAnnotation> getOptions()
        Return a read-only Map containing the values (annotations) that can be selected in this RadioButton or Checkbox. As each annotation's value can be checked by iterating through the list returned from FormElement.getAnnotations(), this method is not strictly necessary, but it's a little more convenient and intuitive so we've left it in.
      • rebuild

        public void rebuild()
        Description copied from class: FormElement
        Cause the annotation list to be rebuilt. Unless you're rendering the annotation using the viewer, it's not necessary to call this method.
      • isNoToggleToOff

        public boolean isNoToggleToOff()
        Return true if the "NoToggleToOff" flag is set, which means it should not be possible to set the value of this field to null by clicking on an already selected Radio Button. Note this flag is a legacy (you should use a FormCheckbox if you want this functionality) and so cannot be set.
      • addAnnotation

        public WidgetAnnotation addAnnotation​(String value,
                                              PDFPage page,
                                              float x1,
                                              float y1,
                                              float x2,
                                              float y2)
        Add an annotation to the Checkbox or RadioButton.
        value - the value of the annotation - this will be the value returned by FormElement.getValue() if this annotation is selected. Note that "Off" is not allowed as an annotation name.
        page - the page to place the annotation on
        x1 - the left-most X co-ordinate of the annotation
        y1 - the top-most Y co-ordinate of the annotation
        x2 - the right-most X co-ordinate of the annotation
        y2 - the bottom-most Y co-ordinate of the annotation
      • toString

        public String toString()
      • putLiteral

        public void putLiteral​(String key,
                               String tokens)
        Put a literal token sequnce. For debugging
        key - the key
        tokens - the token sequence, eg "true" or "/foo" or "[/Foo/Bar]". No refs, just direct objects.
