[NTG-context] Issue with interactive checkboxes

I’ve tried this

\setupinteraction[state=start]

\definesymbol[yes][{\externalfigure[check-mark-svgrepo-com.svg][conversion=mp]}]
\definesymbol[no][]

\newcount\chk
\def\chk{%
\global \advance \chk by 1
\setupfield[setup1][width=0.5cm, height=0.5cm,rulethickness=1pt, corner=round, framecolor=red]%
\definefield[checkme\the\chk][check][setup1][yes,no][no]%
\field[checkme\the\chk]%
}

\starttext

\chk

\chk

\chk

\stoptext

But it gives the error ” You can’t use \global after \advance”

But this example works fine

\setupinteraction[state=start]

\newcount\clozecount
\def\mycloze{%
  \global \advance \clozecount by 1
  \definefield[uniqcloze\the\clozecount][line]%
  \field[uniqcloze\the\clozecount]%
}

\starttext

Frogs have four \mycloze\ and two eyes.
Frogs have four \mycloze\ and two eyes.
Frogs have four \mycloze\ and two eyes.
Frogs have four \mycloze\ and two eyes.

\stoptext
