There is no way to have a form do horizontal radio button.do that. But it would be a nice feature to save vertical space on a form. An ugly work-a-round is to have check boxes and then form rules to make them act like radio buttons so that check box A unchecks when check box B is checked.

I created an example a while back that transformed a multiple choice field into a vertical stack of radio buttons. I removed the <br/> in the code so the radio buttons stack horizontally now. This was an existing example and if done today I might approach it slightly differently:

Hi Dan,

Can you give me access to this link? because I have to implement the same in one of my scenarios.

I tried and it is asking for a password 

Thanks,

Here is an blog post example that is similar to what you are asking about:

http://quickbase.posterous.com/a-form-you-are-comfortable-with

Although I formatted the checkboxes (you want radio buttons) vertically (you want a horizontal layout) it is a simple matter to change the code. The big picture is that QuickBase forms can be enhanced in unlimited ways and the code to do it is always very short.
This blog post is no longer active. Do you have any other link?

Thanks in advance. :)

Just to comment on my own post - when I say "no way", I mean using native QuickBase.  Dan is able to modify how QuickBase works.
