Any scripting language can be used to generate the xml code to dynamically set values in the radio buttons (i.e. Perl, PHP, ASP, JSP, ColdFusion, etc...). Radios occur in sets and are called radio buttons because they act like the buttons on a car radio. The user can have only one radio button setting in effect at one time, just as you can listen to only one radio station at a time. This means that radio buttons are mutually exclusive. The active setting has a dot in the middle of the button. Clicking one button in a group turns off whichever button was on before. Radio buttons never initiate an action.

Radios can contain text and images. You can add to the radio a graphic of your choice by providing the URL of the graphic with a setImage attribute or an addImage attribute for a multiple images.

Bamboo Suite Radios are interactive buttons, it changes when the cursor or pointer is position over it. By making a Radio light up (or otherwise calling attention to itself), you provide a stronger visual signal that the area is clickable then with a static flat graphic.

Bambookit Radio buttons offers wide range of colors for background and foreground highlights, rollovers, or opaque to set a Radio's transparency. Background and Foreground colors and highlights can be configured to be set to any 6 digit hexadecimal (RGB) value.

Gradient Color fill is made available for radio buttons. The gradient progresses from one specified color to a different specified color in a Widget with three choices of gradients curves available: linear, concave, and convex. See in the applet example above how these curves are differ.

Radio's border choices are: none, flat, squareraised, squarelowered, roundraised, roundlowered, roundraisedthin, roundloweredthin, squareraisedthin, squareloweredthin, text groove, ridge.

Radio can contain a text with customizable font's size and style, colors, alignment. The Fontname can be configured as Serif, Sansserif, or monospaced. Fontstyle can be configured as Bold, Italic, Plain, Bolditalic, Underline. The point size can be set from 6 tp 120.

Radio can be aligned right, left, center, bottomright, bottomleft, topright, topleft.

It can be set visible/invisible, enabled/disabled, selected/deselected.

Enabled property set to False is used to disabled a Radio.

setValue property is used to display a selected state in the Radio. It can be set to False or True. Default is False.

Opaque is used to set the Radio's transparency, if opaque is set to 'false', then the elements behind the Button are visible and Foreground highlight is set automatically to white..

Cacheable views get activated through setCache property. When loading gui's, this option caches the views if set to 'True, including previously entered data in the fields.

Create radio buttons dynamically using php asp jsp to xml.
