Round up them radio buttons and group em up! You'll be togglin' in no time.

Example use of a radio button is in a form.

A radio button can be selected by default either by clicking the box in the design area, or right-clicking and selecting Edit Radio Button > Select Radio Button. This allows the radio button to be selected by default when the prototype is generated. 


Radio buttons can be dynamically set using the action Set Selected/Checked with the selection value equals true.

Change the alignment of your radio buttons in your form mockup.

By default, the radio button is on the left and the associated text is on the right. You can change this alignment so that text is on the left by selecting the Left or Right radio buttons in the Properties tab.

Interactions can be added to radio buttons by using OnClick. Because radio buttons are often toggled in a group, you do not need to add more than one case or conditional logic like you do with checkboxes.

Enabling and disabling text fields using an OnClick interaction in Axure.

Often times the selection of a radio button will change an element on the next page. This is done by storing a variable value if the radio button is "true", or rather, is selected. 


In this example, clicking the Submit Button sets the variable value based on which radio button is selected. On the next page, the associated panel state is dynamically shown using an OnPageLoad interaction.

Storing variables using radio buttons in your prototype to show dynamic content on the next page.

Radio buttons are a fixed height and width. You can edit the text but cannot change the size or shape of the actual button.

Disable radio buttons dynamically or using the context menu.

By default, the radio button will be enabled when added to your design. In some cases you may want to disable it by default. To do this, right-click the radio button and select Disabled.


The checkbox can also be enabled and disabled in an interaction by using the Enable or Disable action in the case editor. 

The radio button is often used to allow the user to make one selection out of a small group of choices. The selection made can trigger an interaction on that page or be stored in a variable value to be used on another page.

Toggle radio button selections in your wireframe using assign radio group.

When radio buttons are grouped, only one radio button can be selected at a time. Select the radio buttons you want grouped, right-click, and select Assign Radio Group. In the dialog box, give the radio group a name and click OK.


If you'd like to add a button to a radio button to a group, select the additional button, right-click, and select Assign Radio Group. In the droplist, choose the name of the group you'd like to add it to and click OK.


To remove a button from a group, select the button, right-click, and select Assign Radio Group. In the group name field, clear the text and click OK.

Radio buttons can be dynamically selected using the action "Set Selected/Checked" with the selections value equals true.

Selecting a radio button can be used to change content dynamically on the same page using conditions and dynamic panels. The condition "Is checked of *radiobutton* equals value true" checks if the radio button has been selected and then performs an action.
