Checkbox not working
Hi. My checkbox is not reflecting in my PDF form though other fields has been displayed correctly. I read the other topics related to my problem but the solutions are not working for me. I tried using pipe then export values are the same with my contact form field. Here is the site I need help with.
What are your form-tags? What are your fields export values?
form-tags: [checkbox* source_of_funds use_label_element “Salary” “Business” “Retirement” “Others”]
fields export values are: Salary, Business, Retirement, Others
I also tried pipe but it didnt work out.
It should be working.
Can you share your PDF or send it to admin at maximum dot software? Can you check to make sure CF7 field ‘source_of_funds’ is mapped to the correct PDF field?

is it because my checkbox is a multiselect checkbox?
I’m not able to download that PDF. I’m getting a 404 page at your URL.
I haven’t seen a multi-select check boxes in PDF before. Is that possible?
The plugin doesn’t support multi-select fields due to a small limitation. I plan to have that fixed at the earliest opportunity. However, I don’t think you can have multi-select check boxes in PDF.
I really would like to see your PDF. Your problem is probably something else. Maybe corrupted/bad PDF file?
Hi. Gonna update this topic to resolved. I’ve figured out a way to map my checkbox to pdf which is to convert my multiple checkbox to individual checkboxes.
Thank you for your time 🙂
Ok, sounds good. I’ll see if I can implement a fix for multi-select fields soon.
I’m wonder if the fix was implemented.
I have the similar situation as topic starter mentioned in second message. And it can’t be resolved just to make checkboxes separate. The point of doing [checkbox* pdf_name “” “value1” “value2” “value3”] to have a mandatory click on at least one of checkboxes.
When you adding same name checkboxes in PDF Form, Acrobat naming them like pdf_name#0, pdf_name#1, pdf_name#2.
So when I’m putting the same export values and map them in the cf7 form, in my case it showed as logically needed [pdf_name] -> [pdf_name], when I filled in the test form, all those fields came empty.Plugin Author maximum.software
I haven’t yet gotten around to multi-select support yet. I’ve been working on preparing for the Pdf.Ninja API version 2 launch. It has been delayed due to various problems. It is holding me up right now.
Regarding your issue with checkboxes not getting filled, it is not related to the multi-select feature. As I understand it, you don’t actually need the multi-select feature. You just need the user to click on one of the options.
Make sure your PDF checkboxes have the same name (pdf_name) but different export values (value1 value2 value3). Use the checkbox tag with the ‘exclusive’ option:
[checkbox* pdf_name exclusive "Something 1|value1" "Something 2|value2" "Something 3|value3"]
Once you create the mapping, it should work. If you are still having issues, please post your PDF file or email it to me to admin at maximum dot software and I will see if I can figure out what the issue is.
as I mentioned, I need a mandatory click at least on one box, but it can be also two or three checked options.
Thank you.Plugin Author maximum.software
Hm, I see. In that case, you will need the multiselect support. Let me get back to you once I have it implemented.
More than that, if I will put in PDF checkboxes with the same name but different export values, it making them exclusive and they are acting like radio buttons. And if I will put the string in cf7 [checkbox* pdf_name “name1|value1” “name2|value2” “name3|value3”] and will try to select all checkboxes in form – PDF will come with those boxes empty, but if I will check only one – it will reflect that checkbox correctly in PDF.
