Radio Buttons allow a user to only select one item from a list. Using radio buttons are useful when only one item can and should be selected. This guide will walk through how to add a radio button to a web page.

Adding the Radio Button List Control

With the Web Page selected in the tree, click on the '+' icon and add the Radio Button List Control to the web page. The Radio Button List control is located in the Repeater category.

Configuring the Radio Cell

The Radio Button List Control comes preconfigured with a Radio Cell nested in the list. The Radio Cell is a container where additional controls can be added to further customize the radio button experience. In this example, the Radio Cell will contain a Radio Button control and a label to describe the item. 

With the RadioCell selected in the tree, click on the '+' icon and add the Radio Button Control.

This guide walked through how to manually create a radio button list. With Kitcloud, there is the Radio Button Cell Static template and the Radio Button Cell Dynamic template that will automatically create a radio button list for you in a separate web flow. These can be found in the Training Category of Kitcloud when you create a new Web Flow.
