Shiny by RStudio

Create radio buttons

radioButtons(inputId, label, choices, selected = NULL, inline = FALSE,
  width = NULL)


inputId The input slot that will be used to access the value.
label Display label for the control, or NULL for no label.
choices List of values to select from (if elements of the list are named then that name rather than the value is displayed to the user)
selected The initially selected value (if not specified then defaults to the first value)
inline If TRUE, render the choices inline (i.e. horizontally)
width The width of the input, e.g. '400px', or '100%'; see validateCssUnit.


A set of radio buttons that can be added to a UI definition.


Create a set of radio buttons used to select an item from a list.


If you need to represent a "None selected" state, it's possible to default the radio buttons to have no options selected by using selected = character(0). However, this is not recommended, as it gives the user no way to return to that state once they've made a selection. Instead, consider having the first of your choices be c("None selected" = "").


## Only run examples in interactive R sessions if (interactive()) { ui <- fluidPage( radioButtons("dist", "Distribution type:", c("Normal" = "norm", "Uniform" = "unif", "Log-normal" = "lnorm", "Exponential" = "exp")), plotOutput("distPlot") ) server <- function(input, output) { output$distPlot <- renderPlot({ dist <- switch(input$dist, norm = rnorm, unif = runif, lnorm = rlnorm, exp = rexp, rnorm) hist(dist(500)) }) } shinyApp(ui, server) }
