Perspective - Radio Group

Component Palette Icon:

Description

The Radio Group allows you to create multiple radio buttons in a single container. The number of radio buttons in the group is determined by the number of elements in the "radios" object. Only one radio button in a group may be selected at a time. Radio groups are a good way to let the user choose just one of a number of options. If multiple selections are expected, the Checkbox or Dropdown components can be used.

New in 8.1.2

The DateTime Picker component has three pre-configured variants:

  • Text Right - Default layout with text on the right of the radio button.
  • Text Left - Layout with text on the left of the radio button.
  • Multiple - Layout with multiple radio buttons and text on the right.

    Component Events

    The Perspective Event Types Reference page describes all the possible component event types for Perspective components. Not all component events support each Perspective component. The Component Events and Actions page shows how to configure events and actions on a Perspective component. Component scripting is handled separately and can be accessed from the Component menubar or by right clicking on the component.
