Creating Radio Buttons Using Swing

Creating Radio Buttons Using Swing

Radio buttons behave in the same mutually exclusive way in Swing and the AWT. However, the way that you create a set of radio buttons differs significantly between Swing and the AWT. To create a set of radio buttons in Swing, you must instantiate the buttons, instantiate a ButtonGroup object, and add the buttons to the ButtonGroup object. With the AWT, you must create a group object and pass it to the constructor for the buttons when they are instantiated. This code was tested using JDK1.1.6 and Swing 1.0.3 under Win95.
