  • About this demo
  • C#
  • VB

RadButton is compliant with Section 508 and Level AAA of the WCAG 2.0 Guidelines. Run WAVE, the automated web accessibility evaluation tool, to check the accessibility level of the control yourself.

RadButton is also visible in Windows High Contrast mode when rendered with the Simple skin.

You can also use the keyboard to focus and activate a RadButton, as shown in the Keyboard Navigation demo.
