How to use Radio Group Widget

Content properties

These properties are customizable options present in the property pane of the widget, allowing users to modify the widget according to their preferences.


Options array<object>

This property allows you to set the labels and values for the items. You can add these labels and values directly from the user interface. Ensure that the values assigned to each option are unique. Additionally, you can turn on JS and provide options in JSON format, like:


"label": "Yes",
"value": "yes"
"label": "No",
"value": "no"

You can also dynamically display data by using JavaScript. For instance, you can use the .map() function to transform the data to the desired format, like:


{{ p => ({label:, value:}))}}

Default selected value string

This option allows you to set a default value in a widget, which is initially selected unless the user changes it.


Text string

Sets the label on the widget.

Position string

This property allows you to configure the label's placement.


  • Auto: Automatically positions the label based on the widget type and layout.
  • Left: Aligns the label to the left side of the widget.
  • Top: Positions the label above the widget.

Alignment string

This property is only available when you select Left from the Position property. It allows you to align the text to the left boundary or adjust it closer to the widget using the Right alignment option.

Width number

This property is only available when you select Left from the Position property. It allows you to control the proximity of the text to the widget, determining how close or far it can be positioned.


Required boolean

When enabled, this property makes the Radio Group a mandatory field. When the Radio Group is placed within a Form widget, enabling the Required property ensures that the Form's submit button remains disabled until the Radio Group has some value.


Tooltip String

This feature enables you to add hints or provide additional information to guide the user regarding the required input.

Visible Boolean

This property controls the visibility of the widget. If you turn off this property, the widget would not be visible in view mode. Additionally, you can use JavaScript by clicking on JS next to the Visible property to conditionally control the widget's visibility.

Disabled Boolean

This property prevents users from selecting the widget. Even though the widget remains visible, user input is not permitted. Additionally, you can use JavaScript by clicking on JS next to the Disabled property to control the widget's disable state conditionally.

Inline Boolean

When this property is turned on, the radio items are displayed horizontally. However, when the property is turned off, the radio items are displayed in a vertical line.

Animate Loading Boolean

This property controls whether the widget is displayed with a loading animation. When enabled, the widget shows a skeletal animation during the loading process. Additionally, you can control it through JavaScript by clicking on the JS next to the property.

Height String

This property determines how the widget's height adjusts to changes in its content. There are three available options:

  • Fixed: The height of the widget remains as set using drag and resize.
  • Auto Height: The widget's height adjusts dynamically in response to changes in its content.
  • Auto Height with limits: Same as Auto height, with a configurable option to set the minimum and maximum number of rows the widget can occupy.
