Using HTML 'radio' Input Fields


How To Use "radio" Input Fields?



A "radio" input field is defined as <input type="radio" .../>. "radio" input fields can be used to create a group of radio buttons to allow viewers to push one and only one button in the group. There are other attributes you may need to use for a "radio" input field:

  • name="fieldName" - Specifies the name of this field. To define a group of radio buttons, you need to use the same field name for all the buttons in the group.
  • value="selectedValue" - Specifies the value to be used when this radio button is pushed. The default is value="on".
  • checked="checked" - Specifies that this checkbox is pushed by default.

Here is a tutorial example with three radio button input fields:
