Try something like this:

{af_radar_p:text(checkbox),multiple {label "Airfield Radar"} {options { {T t} {F f} } } }
Thank you Avni. Just seen your reply after figuring out the following which seems to give me the desired result:

{af_radar_p:checkbox,options={Yes/No},label=Radar Equipped}

Thank you for your reply.

Form element 'af_radar_p:checkbox,options={Yes/No},label=Radar' doesn't have the right format. It must be var[:flag[,flag ...]]
while executing
"ad_form -name ....

I think that formspec is for xowiki forms, not ad_form.
Ryan,

You're correct. What I posted is a widget spec for an xowiki.Form.

I shall be more careful to be specific in future to avoid confusing things!
