Steps to create Custom field datatype as Radio Button

Hi , 

          I want to create Custom field datatype as radiobutton say eg. like (Male or Female) , 

 

1.      While Creating For this Custom field which datatype should i use ?. there is no radio button.

2.      Actually Creating Objects are like creating tables in SQL. and custom fields are Columns and datatypes.

         so i m little bit confused i searched for boolean datatype but it is also not available .

In my opinion, you should create a picklist with two values Male and Female instead of checkbox. As you are a beginner, you should not try for the complicated things. Picklist will be easier to you.

 

Hope this helps.

Kathir,

 

For your requirement I guess you can go for a picklist or Check box datatype. If you are going for a checkbox field , then just add a validation rule to avoid the selection of both the check boxes.

 

Good day.
