Radio Button Field Properties

The Radio Button options are similar to the Checkbox options, except radio buttons are limited to having users only select one option.

The properties panel allows the App Designer to further customize how the checkboxes will be presented to the user.

Setting Description

Display Name

Option Orientation Select Vertical or Horizontal. Note: For Horizontal the options may wrap onto further rows if the options require more width than is available to the control.
Options Tab
Sorting direction Select None, Asc (Ascending) or Desc (Descending). Note: All values are treated as text when sorting. Also, selecting None after using the sort options will leave the options in the last sorted order, though they can then be manually reordered.
