Usage notes


  • Radio buttons allow users to select a single option from a list of mutually exclusive options. All possible options are exposed up front for users to compare.
  • Radio buttons should not be used on their own, they should always be used within a FieldGroup.
  • Invalid radio buttons are signified by including HelpText in a FieldGroup. Sample usage for an invalid radio state is included in the FieldGroup documentation.

Migration Guide


T-shirt sizing

Radio Button now supports t-shirt sizing and requires that you specify the size by adding a .spectrum-RadioButton--size* class. Default styling is medium.

Read-only

Radio Button now includes a read-only state in addition to the disabled state.

  • Read-only radio buttons are disabled, but not all disabled radio buttons are read-only.
  • Read-only radio buttons do not have a focus ring, but the button should be focusable.]

Invalid/Error State

  • Invalid radio buttons are signified by including Help text in a Field group. The .is-invalid class has been removed. See Field group for an example with an invalid radio group.

Remove focus-ring class

We’ve migrated away from the focus-ring class in favor of the native :focus-visible pseudo-class due to changes in browser support.
