The state of true resolves to a value of 1. If you were to sum up Checkbox1.Value, Checkbox2.Value, and Checkbox3.Value, where #1, and #2, are true, then you would get an answer of 2.

 

So you can use:

Sum(Checkbox1.Value, Checkbox2.Value, Checkbox3.Value)

Let me know if that works for you.

Re: checkbox

There's a few ways to do this.

 

We already have the sum of the checkboxes in Label1.

 

If we want the color of the text to change to red, you would go to the Color property of Label1 and place a condition:

If(Value(Label1.Text)>=9, Red, Black)

This means, "If the value of Label1 is greater than or equal to 9, then make the text color red, otherwise black."

 

So the If statement works very similarly to Excel.

yep that worked nicely i used a circle to fill the color based on the label value

 

now to tweek

 

if the value is between 0 and 7 - fill green

8 to 13 - yellow

14 - 20 red

 

how is this acheived ?

this only works for 1 condition not 3 so how do i correct ? 0-7 Green, 8-13 Yellow, 14-20 Red.

 

If(Value(Label9.Text)>=14,Red,Yellow)
