Flex RadioButton Control Example

Let us follow the following steps to check usage of RadioButton control in a Flex application by creating a test application −

Step Description
1 Create a project with a name HelloWorld under a packagecom.tutorialspoint.client as explained in the Flex - Create Application chapter.
2 Modify HelloWorld.mxml as explained below. Keep rest of the files unchanged.
3 Compile and run the application to make sure business logic is working as per the requirements.

Following is the content of the modified mxml file src/com.tutorialspoint/HelloWorld.mxml.

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
<s:Application xmlns:fx = "http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"
   xmlns:s = "library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark"
   xmlns:mx = "library://ns.adobe.com/flex/mx"
   width = "100%" height = "100%" minWidth = "500" minHeight = "500">
   
   <fx:Style source = "/com/tutorialspoint/client/Style.css" />
   <fx:Script>
      <![CDATA[
         [Bindable]
         private var selectedOption:String = "";
         protected function option_clickHandler(event:MouseEvent):void {
            var radioButton:RadioButton = event.target as RadioButton;
            switch (radioButton.id) {
               case option1.id:
                  selectedOption = option1.label;
                  break;
               case option2.id:
                  selectedOption = option2.label;
                  break;
               case option3.id:
                  selectedOption = option3.label;
                  break;
               case option4.id:
                  selectedOption = option4.label;
                  break;
            }			
         }

         </s:Panel>

</s:Application>

Once you are ready with all the changes done, let us compile and run the application in normal mode as we did in Flex - Create Application chapter. If everything is fine with your application, it will produce the following result: [ Try it online ]
