Remarks

Use the GroupName property to specify a grouping of radio buttons to create a mutually exclusive set of controls. You can use the GroupName property when only one selection is possible from a list of available options.

When this property is set, only one RadioButton in the specified group can be selected at a time.

The value of this property is stored in view state.

This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes. For more information, see ThemeableAttribute and ASP.NET Themes and Skins.
