Set token value for unchecked box?

Communicator

I'm trying to set a token value for an unchecked box. I want it to be such that when it's clicked, it has value A, and when it is unchecked it has value B.

Is there a way to do this without involving javascript?

It sounds like you would be better served using a dropdown, if there are two choices that aren’t essentially true or false.

But, you can accomplish this with a checkbox, as this run-anywhere example shows:

<form>
  <label>Set value by checkbox</label>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="checkbox" token="checked" searchWhenChanged="true">
      <label></label>
      <choice value="yes">Check for A</choice>
      <delimiter> </delimiter>
      <change>
        <condition value="yes">
          <eval token="checked_result_value">"A"</eval>
        </condition>
        <condition>
          <eval token="checked_result_value">"B"</eval>
        </condition>
      </change>
    </input>
  </fieldset>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| makeresults | eval value="$checked_result_value$"</query>
        </search>
      </single>
    </panel>
  </row>
</form>

Added example of doing this with a checkbox, despite it potentially not being the best tool for the job.
