XForm Checkbox and Radio IDs have space



We ran a Markup (Assessibilty) validation check on our XForm and we ran into a little issue. The IDs for Check boxes and Radio buttons have Spaces in them if the following occurs:

Name of Checkbox list = chkMy_list

Checkbox 1 Name = North Wales, Value = North_Wales
CheckBox 2 Name = South Wales, Value = South_Wales

This sets up the following ID

CheckBox 1 ID = "chkMy_listNorth Wales"

CheckBox 2 ID = "chkMy_listSouth Wales"

This also gives the Label For incorrectly formatted IDs.

Can this be changed, updated or is there a work around?

Hello Jonathan

I've not tried it but I've used Alt+255 in the past as a space substitute. This is an example of the character: " " << the symbol between the ""'s is Alt+255.

No idea if it works but let me know if it does :)!

Thanks for your reply but our client isnt going to add that in for each checkbox value - they are are not very technical.
