This control is used to show a set of options to the user and allows selecting only one of them.
These values can be:
This control can also be used show a set of Action buttons. By clicking the resultant buttons, the user has in effect selected the option and clicked the Next button. In order to activate this behavior, set the ShowAsButtonSet property to true. This action also disables the standard Next button:
The ShowAsButtonSet property (set to true) changes the items behavior, from being shown as radio options, as buttons. If this behavior is set to true, we can also activate the property
ShowInButtonBar, which places the button options that conforms the Radio choice in the buttons bar. To advance through the process flow, the user should select one of the options.
It is possible to move forward / backwards on our process using the keyboard (pressing AvPag / RePag. Please note that, If we move forward using the keyboard instead of pressing one of the buttons, the last value of the available items in the Radio Control will be the selected one (item3 in the example shown above).
The AutoNext property, if set to true, enables the control to move forward, once the user has filled in the control with the desired value.
For instance, if we have a Page Form composed by one Radio control, with its Required property set to true we would need to select an item inside our control, and press the predefined next button afterwards to keep on progressing in our process (Image below); if we set AutoNext to true, the process will continue right after we select a value of our Radio control, without pressing the next button
Important: if there is any other control in the current form with its required property set to true, the process will not move forward.
