Chapter 8. Forms > Creating Graphic Form Controls

Creating Graphic Form Controls

The radio and checkbox form controls are basically graphics built into the browser that save you time and make forms look consistent. A checkbox on one site will look the same on other sites. The big drawback to these controls, though, is that you can’t change them.

If you’re designing a touch-screen kiosk, for example, the little tiny radio button controls are probably not going to be big enough for even the smallest fingers to select. However, with a bit of DHTML, we can create our own checkboxes or radio buttons with any design or size we like (Figure 8.28).
