Toggle Buttons: The buttons that can change from one state to another, i.e. which can be toggled from on state to off state or vice-versa are called toggle buttons. For example:
- A particular switch in our house can either be on or off. This is a very good example of a real life toggle switch.
- The WiFi or Bluetooth option in our phone is another example, that can either be on or off.
Radio Button: As the name suggests, it is the concept of the buttons in a radio, where for the first station, we select the first button, for the second station we select the second button and so on. It is like a multiple-choice question where at a time only one button will be active. Here we select from a list of options. For example:
- Buttons in a FM Radio.
- Multiple choice questions in an exam.
Example: Create a radio button using Bootstrap.
- We have to add a checked attribute to any one of the radio buttons such that it is pre-selected when the page loads. It is a boolean attribute.
- The same name has to be given to all the set of elements.
Example 2: The following code will help us to understand the difference (in code) to design a toggle and a radio button.
