Using Radio Buttons in ASP.NET ListView

The requirement

Use radio buttons to select between items in a ListView

The problem

If you use ASP.NET radio buttons, the framework renders each radio button with a distinct name attribute so that they do not function as a group. This means that users can select all the radio buttons, and not just one.

Possible solution

Use ordinary HTML radio buttons bound as follows:

<input type="radio" name="listViewSelect" value='<%# Eval("RecordID") %>' />

You can use any value for the name attribute. Where this code has “RecordID” you need any field you can use to distinguish one item from another. To determine which item was selected, use something like the following to retrieve the value of RecordID:

Dim selection As String = Request.Form("listViewSelect")


The radio button will not raise events.
