Radio Button (MSAA UI Element Reference)

Note  This topic describes Radio Button objects for purposes of MSAA UI Element Reference. How to create Radio Button objects in various UI frameworks is not described here. See the API reference documentation for the UI framework you're using.

Radio buttons are used to select one of several options, usually within a dialog box. A radio button contains a small circle with text next to it. When selected, the circle has a smaller, filled circle inside it. Selecting one button in a set deselects the previously selected button, so only one of the options in the set is selected at a time.

The window class name for a radio button is "BUTTON".
