The Icon Field is one of the Special Fields that can be added to a form. It is similar to a radio button field in that the user must select one option from several. However, instead of a line of text, the user sees customizable icons and two lines of text for each option. This field adds a graphic element to your form and can make it easier for a user to distinguish between options available to them.
When you insert this field, it will display a couple of icons by default, just to give you an idea what it looks like and to help you get started. Use the Field Values property to change or remove these "placeholders" and customize the options and icons that will be displayed.
