    Type: System.Boolean

    true to select the radio button; otherwise, false.

  • htmlAttributes

    An object that contains the HTML attributes to set for the element.

Return Value

Type: System.Web.Mvc.MvcHtmlString
An input element whose type attribute is set to "radio".

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type HtmlHelper. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see or


Exception Condition

The name parameter is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or empty.


The value parameter is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


The difference between calling the RadioButton method and using an input element is that the RadioButton method is designed to make it easy to bind to view data or model data.

The htmlAttributes parameter consists of an object that contains name/value pairs. The attributes that are specified in the name/value pairs depend on the HTML element that is being rendered. For example, for an input element where type is set to "radio", you might provide the following anonymous object:

new { id = "radio1" }
New With { .id = "radio1" }
