What is a Radio Button Group?

A radio button (group) is an input element that allows the user to choose only one of a predefined set of mutually exclusive options.


Add Item to Group

A radio button group can contain a basically unlimited number of items.
Click on the "+" plus icon to add the first item:


Add Item


Select the item and change the "Item Text" and "Item Value":


Edit Item


Item Text:

The item text defines the text shown in the form.


Item Value:

The item value defines the value for the selection.
The "Item Value" is the value that should either be transferred by email or inserted into the database.


Field Name:

Each input element has a unique field name through which the content can be accessed.
Each time the user inputs, the content of the form elements is automatically updated. See also: Field Name


Default Selection:

Check the option "Default Selection" to set the selected item as default selection.
You can also uncheck the option to set no default selection for the group.
Hint: You can also double-click on an item to change the "Default Selection".


Item Width:

Radiobutton groups can be aligned both horizontally and vertically.
Furthermore, a combination of vertical and horizontal alignment is possible, wherein the width of each element can be set individually:

  • Items are arranged side by side until the total width reaches 100%.
  • If the total width exceeds 100%, a break is automatically inserted.
  • An item with 100% width fills an entire row.
