RadioButton

You can use the RadioButton component to make an element behave like a radio button. This component is typically used on an element with two visual child elements—one to display when the radio button is selected and another to display when the radio button is cleared.

Use this component in conjunction with the RadioButtonGroup component. The RadioButtonGroup component handles selecting and clearing the radio buttons in the group and makes sure that only one radio button is ever selected.

To see in-game examples of completed canvases with the RadioButton component, open the level UiFeatures in the project SamplesProject. Press Ctrl+G to play the game, and then choose Components, Interactable Components, RadioButton. You can view examples of different behaviors, default settings, and groups for radio buttons Press Esc to exit the game.

To view these same canvases in the UI Editor, navigate to the \Gems\LyShineExamples\Assets\UI\Canvases\LyShineExamples\Comp\RadioButton directory. You can open the following canvases:

  • Groups.uicanvas – Examples of different radio button groupings

  • RadioButton.uicanvas – Examples of different behaviors and default settings
