JRadioButton : Deselecting
posted 14 years ago
At least one button in a ButtonGroup must be selected. If you read the API for ButtonGroup it gives you this workaround...
Initially, all buttons in the group are unselected. Once any button is selected, one button is always selected in the group. There is no way to turn a button programmatically to "off", in order to clear the button group. To give the appearance of "none selected", add an invisible radio button to the group and then programmatically select that button to turn off all the displayed radio buttons. For example, a normal button with the label "none" could be wired to select the invisible radio button.
