March 29th, 2007, 07:59 PM
I have a problem. When i create a JRadioButton checklist, and add them to a group. If i do some kind of form and would like to know if a butten is checked or not. I dont only want true or false. I also want the category behind the radiobutton also. see code below

I create a button like this

String testString = "Test";
JRadioButton testButton = new JRadioButton(testString);

To simplefy a little, i would like to know if the button is selected and i would like to take the String, testString i mean also. Beacause the testString is going to be inserted into a sql database later on :)

Anyone know how to do this, that would be great! :)

To check whether it is selected:

boolean test;
test = testButton.isSelected();
The test variable will be true is selected, false if unselected.

To check what the string is:

String theString;
theString = testButton.getText();
The getText() method can be used in any button component, including radio buttons, to retrieve its string.
