RadioButton choice & refresh using SPD

  Asked By: Madeline    Date: Jun 14    Category: MOSS    Views: 1084

I'm most confused about RadioButtons (RBs) on a .aspx page I build with SPD and
how to make them work (MOSS site). Do they operate on the client, or via a
round-trip to server?

My goal is to make a modified DFWP display respond to RBs on the same page. Does
this imply: must be client or must be server?

What I've done with SPD:
1) put a table on blank aspx page
2) put DFWP of a custom list into last row of tbl
3) put RBs into 1st row of tbl
4) make sure this displays OK
5) but my DFWP cannot "see" the RBs & vice-versa

So,how do I connect up the RBs to the XSLT of the table display?
(I guess, get the RBs values into parameters?)

Some of the things I've blogged build RBs in XML then somehow get the result
into XSLT, others seem to use java-script

Sooo, since the post below, I've kind-a-of figured out that what I need is 1)
XML or CEWP that constructs a set of radio buttons, and 2) a way to get the
resulting values/choices into the XSLT that I will build.

So that:
user opens up WP
see results for default RBs
chooses new RB status
(sets RB stuff and goes back to server)
status carried down to my XSLT as parameterts (at server)
WP re-displays
again, again, agin as user desires

I'm closer than below.

The simplest way is to post back the values  as part of a query string
and pull the query string values into your DVWP on page  load.
