Control Descriptions: Radio Button

Using the Radio Button control, you can create selectable radio buttons on customized forms. Selecting radio buttons allows end users to choose a state or condition (selected or unselected). In your radio button's properties, you can define data associated only with the selected state, and use this data in your application.

Generally, radio buttons are used to present a set of mutually exclusive selectable items. To define this set, associate two or more radio buttons with a Group Box control, using the group box's properties. For details, see Mapping Data from a Set of Radio Buttons.

Presentation Designer radio buttons also offer configurable tooltips and hotkey shortcuts for selecting the radio button with a keyboard.
