Is it possible to use checkboxes in the header of a fex application. This is needed to make a print mechanism so we can indicate which columns will and will not be printed in PDF. We now use a script, and by clicking on the right mouse a box appears to select 'show in EXCEL or PDF' and then the same fex will be called.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Kerry,

It may be easiest to create hidden parameter controls (via the GUI) in the static html, for each of the checkable columns. Then your onsubmit code need only copy values between controls, and IBI will take it from there.

Would it be possible to show checkboxes by using code like below. The code below don't show me the right result.
-* File checkcar.fex -SET &ECHO=ALL;
DEFINE FILE CAR COL001/A1=''; CHKBOX001/A50=''; END
TABLE FILE CAR PRINT CAR.COUNTRY COL001 AS CHKBOX001 CAR.CAR CAR.MODEL CAR.BODYTYPE HEADING "" FOOTING "" ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM OFF ON TABLE NOTOTAL ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON ON TABLE SET STYLE * UNITS=IN, SQUEEZE=ON, ORIENTATION=PORTRAIT, $ TYPE=REPORT, GRID=OFF, FONT='ARIAL', SIZE=9, $ ENDSTYLE END
Thanks for adding the finishing touches, I know that what I posted did not return the values it was meant only to illustrate a method of actually displaying the check boxes in reply to the sample code posted by MrM.
And bye the way Francis there is definitely nothing wrong with some the older ways of doing things. To be honest they are generally much more reliable and user friendly than of some of the newer rubbish that is around now.
