Radio Buttons

Radio buttons are used when selecting a single option from a list of options in the context of a form.

Best practices 

  • Ideally ensure your group of radio buttons has between 2 and 7 options. If the range of options is greater then 7, consider using a select control instead.
  • Sort options logically. For example, place the simplest or safest option first and add subsequent options following the same criteria.
  • Don't nest other options within a radio button group. Instead reveal related fields after the radio button group based on the selected option.
  • Include a "None" option in cases where users may need to unselect a previous choice.
  • Use concise labels, adding a description if further explanation is necessary
