Recipe Using Radio Buttons

A radio button is like a checkbox that cannot be unchecked. Selecting one radio button unselects a previously selected one. Usually a group of radio buttons is put into a RadioGroup view group that ensures only one button of the collection is selected at a time.This is shown in the layout file in Listing 4.18.


Figure 4.13 ToggleButton example with unselected and selected widgets.

Listing 4.18 res/layout/rbutton.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"> <RadioGroup android:id="@+id/RadioGroup01" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"> <RadioButton android:text="Republican" android:id="@+id/RadioButton02" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" <RadioButton android:text="Democrat"

android:id="@+id/RadioButton03" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" <RadioButton android:text="Independent" android:id="@+id/RadioButton01" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"



An example activity is similar to the previous recipe in Listing 4.17, but with CheckBox replaced by RadioButton. Listing 4.18's layout is shown in Figure 4.14.
