    is there a way to group radio buttons to make them exclusive. for example: i have 4 radio buttons on a form. i would like to group them two by two, so that in group of two the buttons cannot be checked at the same time, but there is no problem for two buttons from different groups to be checked at the same time.

    Hi raluca,

    Thank you for contacting us. Please, refer to this article. The tutorial demonstrates how you can create two groups of radio buttons that act independently of one another. Please, note that only one button can be selected in a group.

    I hope this helps. If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us back.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team

    I've a similar problem with the radRadioButton:

    I have 2 RadioButton in different userControls and I don't find a way to group them.

    The article show how you can group a set of radioButton in a common panel but not if there are in different "area".

    Can you please show me if there is a way to group RadioButton when they don't have the same "parent" control?

    RadRadioButton was designed to mimic the behavior of the standard Windows Forms RadioButton. For this reason there is not an easy way to group RadRadioButtons if they have different parent controls. 

    However, you might be able to achieve such a behavior through handling the ToggleStateChanged event of the RadRadioButtons. You should insert custom logic that resets the ToggleState property of the buttons in all other groups.

    Let me know if I can assist you further.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
