Radio button

A radio button is another button type usually used to choose between two options (“yes” and “no” for example).


  • Caption: What is your control called?  Name it here!
  • Internally, the Caption will be used to name the control if you need to reference it within Actions. In the case of two or more controls with the same name, then a number will be appended to the internal name for reference within actions only. This number does not appear on the live screen.
  • Hide Caption: If you’re just labeling your control for your own information but don’t want the text to show in the live screen, check this box.
  • Load State: When the screen loads, what happens to the control?  Is it clickable?  Then it’s Regular.  Disabled?  It’s there but you can’t use it (it’s greyed-out).  Or, if you prefer, you could make the control Hidden in the live screen.
  • Display As: Are the radio buttons horizontal or vertical? Choose here.
  • Default Selection: Select which radio button is the default (for example, in a yes/no radio button, which one will be selected when the screen loads?)
  • Radio Options: Input each radio item that can be selected
  • Width: How wide should your control be in relation to the screen?  Auto means it’ll be the width of the text or icon, Fixed lets you assign a width in pixels, and Full will make it the full width of the section or cell it has been dragged into. You really won’t notice this unless there are other controls in the same cell as the radio button.  


  • Radio button size: Identify the size of your radio button.
  • Background color: Set the background color of this control from the preset Method palette.
  • Caption color/size/text alignment: Choose the color, size, and alignment of the text in your caption.
