Radiogroup

A group of radio buttons. Only one radio button inside the group can be selected at a time. The radio buttons may either direct children of the radiogroup or descendants. Place the radiogroup inside a groupbox if you would like a border or caption around the group. The radiogroup defaults to vertical orientation.

disabled

Type: boolean

Indicates whether the radiogroup is disabled or not. If this attribute is set to true, the radiogroup is disabled. This is usually drawn with the text in grey. If the radiogroup is disabled, it does not respond to user actions. The element cannot be focused and the command event will not fire. The element will still respond to mouse events. To enable the radiogroup, leave the attribute out entirely as opposed to setting the value to false.

focused

Type: boolean

This attribute is set to true if the radiogroup element is focused.

tabindex

Type: integer

The tab order of the element. The tab order is the order in which the focus is moved when the user presses the Tab key. Elements with a higher tabindex are later in the tab order sequence.

value

Type: string

Returns the value property of the currently selected radio button.
