Radio Buttons Fields

Radio Buttons fields give you a group of radio buttons.

# Settings

Radio Buttons fields have the following settings:

  • Radio Button Options – Define the radio buttons that will be available in the field. You even get to set the option values and labels separately, and choose which one should be selected by default.

# Querying Elements with Radio Buttons Fields

When querying for elements that have a Radio Buttons field, you can filter the results based on the Radio Buttons field data using a query param named after your field’s handle.

Possible values include:

Value Fetches elements…
'foo' with a foo option selected.
'not foo' without a foo option selected.
['foo', 'bar'] with either a foo or bar option selected.
['not', 'foo', 'bar'] without either a foo or bar option selected.
{# Fetch entries with the 'foo' option selected #}
{% set entries = craft.entries()
  .all() %}

# Working with Radio Buttons Field Data

If you have an element with a Radio Buttons field in your template, you can access its data using your Radio Buttons field’s handle:

{% set value = entry.myFieldHandle %}

That will give you a craft\fields\data\SingleOptionFieldData (opens new window) object that contains the field data.

To show the selected option, output it as a string, or output the value (opens new window) property:

{{ entry.myFieldHandle }} or {{ entry.myFieldHandle.value }}

To see if an option is selected, use the value (opens new window) property:

{% if entry.myFieldHandle.value %}

To show the selected option’s label, output the label (opens new window) property:

{{ entry.myFieldHandle.label }}

To loop through all the available options, iterate over the options (opens new window) property:

{% for option in entry.myFieldHandle.options %}
  Label:    {{ option.label }}
  Value:    {{ option }} or {{ option.value }}
  Selected: {{ option.selected ? 'Yes' : 'No' }}
{% endfor %}

# Saving Radio Buttons Fields

If you have an element form, such as an entry form (opens new window), that needs to contain a Radio Buttons field, you can use this template as a starting point:

{% set field ='myFieldHandle') %}

  {% for option in field.options %}
    {% set selected = entry is defined
      ? entry.myFieldHandle.value == option.value
      : option.default %}

      <input type="radio"
        value="{{ option.value }}"
        {% if selected %} checked{% endif %}
      {{ option.label }}
  {% endfor %}
