RadioButton Example

This is an example of how to create a RadioButton example, using the Google Web Toolkit, that is an open source set of tools that allows web developers to create and maintain complex JavaScript front-end applications in Java. To add a radio button example we have followed the steps below:

  • The RadioButtonExample class implements the com.google.gwt.core.client.EntryPoint interface to allow the class to act as a module entry point. It overrides its onModuleLoad() method.
  • Create a new VerticalPanel.
  • Create a few instances of RadioButton.
  • Add a ClickHandler to the radio button and override its onClick(ClickEvent event) method to handle the click events.
  • Add the radio button to the VerticalPanel.
  • Add the VerticalPanel to the RootPanel, that is the panel to which all other widgets must ultimately be added.

Let’s take a look at the code snippet that follows: 

package com.javacodegeeks.snippets.enterprise;

import com.google.gwt.core.client.EntryPoint;
import com.google.gwt.event.dom.client.ClickEvent;
import com.google.gwt.event.dom.client.ClickHandler;
import com.google.gwt.user.client.Window;
import com.google.gwt.user.client.ui.RadioButton;
import com.google.gwt.user.client.ui.RootPanel;
import com.google.gwt.user.client.ui.VerticalPanel;

public class RadioButtonExample implements EntryPoint {

	final String[] Items = { "Item0", "Item1", "Item2", "Item3", "Item4", "Item5" };

	public void onModuleLoad() {

  // Create new Instance of vertical panel to align the radio buttons
		VerticalPanel vp = new VerticalPanel();

  // Create i Instances of RadioButton
		for (int i = 0; i < Items.length; i++) {

//Add Item in group 'Items'
			final RadioButton radioButton = new RadioButton("Items", Items[i]);

// Add ClickHandler
			radioButton.addClickHandler(new ClickHandler(){
				public void onClick(ClickEvent event) {

//Set the last radio button disabled by default
			if (i > 4)

//Add radio button to Vertical Panel

  //Add Vertical Panel to Root Panel

    // Method that notifies the user which radio button is checked 
	public void check(RadioButton radioButton){
		Window.alert(radioButton.getText() + " is checked");
