RadioButton Main Features

  • 2 minutes to read

The RadioButton editor is a button that can be selected, but not cleared, by an end-user. A RadioButton paired with other radio button controls enables end-users to select a single option from a group of choices. The RadioButton extension permits you to intersperse the radio buttons in a group with other content on the page.


The RadioButton offers the following features.

  • Native Rendering

    The RadioButton supports native rendering as a native HTML input element of the radio type. When the native HTML mode is enabled, an extension appearance depends on how a client browser renders native HTML elements. This reduces the render size and improves the editor's overall performance. Set the RadioButtonSettings.Properties.Native property value to true to enable native rendering.

  • Appearance Customization

    A radio button edit region (check mark) is represented by an image within the RadioButton editor by default. It is possible to assign your own images to be displayed for different check states.


    You can customize the extension appearance using predefined built-in visual themes. See this topic to learn more: Applying Themes.

  • Built-in Validation

    The RadioButton extension allows you to perform data validation both on the client and server side. See the Built-in Validation topic to learn more.

  • Full-Featured Client-Side API

    The RadioButton provides you with a comprehensive client-side API. This API is implemented using JavaScript and is exposed via the ASPxClientRadioButton object. The ASPxClientRadioButton object serves as a client-side equivalent of the RadioButton extension.
