jQWidgets jqxButtonGroup setSelection() Method

  • Last Updated : 29 Oct, 2021

jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxButtonGroup is used to illustrate a jQuery widget that generates a group of buttons that function like a normal button, radio buttons, or checkboxes.

The setSelection() method is used to select a button from the displayed jqxButtonGroup. The mode of selection must be either checkbox or radio. It has a parameter named index which is of type number. It does not return anything.

Syntax:

$('#Selector').jqxButtonGroup('setSelection', 0);
