Provides a user interface for option selection. There are two modes of operation: radio button and checkbox.
The radiogroup object has two modes of operation: radio button and check box. In radio button mode, the radiogroup object provides a user-definable number of buttons in a group, only one of which may be selected at a time. In check box mode, the indicators in the radiogroup object function as a set of on/off indicators. Check box mode also supports a way to have the checkboxes act as indicators for the bit pattern of a binary representation of an integer (see the message).
Note: radiogroup can be re-sized horizontally so it will extend under comment boxes placed to the right of the buttons or boxes. this way, clicking on the text to the right of the button will also set the button selection or box state.
activecolor [4 floats]
Sets the color for the active radiobuttons/checkboxes in RGBA format.
bgcolor [4 floats]
Sets the background color for the object in RGBA format.
elementcolor [4 floats]
Sets the off color for the radiobuttons/checkboxes in RGBA format. This color only applies if the shape attribute is set to Square (1) or Circle (2).
Enables/disables buttons. The word, followed by followed by a list of zeroes and ones whose length is the same as the number of buttons or boxes, will disable (0) or enable (1) the item in the list position that corresponds to the button or box (e.g., will disable only the fourth button or box).
flagmode [int] (default: 0)
Sets the flag mode of operation for the radiogroup object. In this mode, each check box corresponds to one bit in an integer value (i.e., the first radio button or checkbox corresponds to the ones bit, the second button or checkbox to the twos bit, the third button or checkbox to the fours bit, etc.). The message disables this mode (default).
inactive [int] (default: 0)
Toggles the active or inactive state of the entire group of radio buttons or check boxes.
itemtype [atom_long] (default: 0)
Selects the mode of operation for the radiogroup object.
0 = 'Radio Buttons'
1 = 'Check Boxes'
offset [int] (default: 16)
Sets the pixel offset (spacing) between the tops of the buttons/boxes. the minimum offset is 14 pixels, the default offset is 16 pixels.
parameter_mappable [int] (default: 1)
When parameter_mappable is enabled, the object will be available for mapping to keyboard or MIDI input using the Mappings feature.
Specifies the currently selected button or box.
shape [int] (default: 0)7.0.0
Sets the shape of the radiobuttons/checkboxes.
0 = 'Classic'
1 = 'Square'
2 = 'Circle'
size [atom_long] (default: 2)
Specifies the number of buttons or boxes. The default is 2, and the maximum is 64. Note: If you care using the radiogroup object in check box mode and have enabled Flag Mode, you will only be able to set 32 checkboxes.
style [symbol] (default: )7.0.0
Common Box Attributes
In check box mode: A outputs a list of zeros and ones representing the on/off state of the check boxes.
In flag mode: A send the integer that corresponds to the bit pattern of the currently checked boxes (i.e., if boxes one, two, and three are checked, a will output a value of )out the radiogroup object's output.
In flag mode: An integer value received in the radiogroup object's inlet will set the buttons or checkboxes to reflect the bit pattern of the integer value (i.e., a value of 19 will select boxes one, two, and five, corresponding to the binary value ) and send the integer value out the radiogroup object's output.
In check box mode: The word , followed by a list of zeros and ones, sets the check box states without triggering any output.
If you are using check box mode and are also using Flag Mode, a number will set the state of the first 32 checkboxes in a pattern which corresponds to the bit pattern of the number without triggering output (see the section for more information).
In radio button mode: Clicking on a radio button outputs an int corresponding to the radio button selected. Numbering begins with 0.
In flag mode: Clicking on a check box outputs an int corresponding to the bit pattern represented by the checked boxes (i.e., if boxes one, two, and three are checked, a will output a value of ).
In check box mode: Awill output a list of zeros and one which indicate the on/off state of the group of check boxes.
