What does the component do?

  • It is used to select precisely one of several options.

When should the component be used?

  • Where there are two or more options which mutually exclude one another.


  • A radiobutton is only permitted within a form.
  • There must be at least two options available.
  • A pre-selection is mandatory.
  • Radiobuttons can be arranged vertically or horizontally. The vertical layout is preferred as it allows the user to understand the options more quickly.
  • A horizontal layout is not permitted for mobile views.
  • The text can be multi-line.
  • In addition to the actual radiobutton, the entire text can also be used as a click target.
  • A title can be used above a radiobutton group.
  • A question mark in the circle – in addition to the title – can also be shown for detailed explanations on a radiobutton group. A tooltip opens if the question mark is clicked on.
