The Radiobutton is a standard Tkinter widget used to implement one-of-many selections. Radiobuttons can contain text or images, and you can associate a Python function or method with each button. When the button is pressed, Tkinter automatically calls that function or method.
button = Radiobutton(master, text=”Name on Button”, variable = “shared variable”, value = “values of each button”, options = values, …)
shared variable = A Tkinter variable shared among all Radio buttons
value = each radiobutton should have different value otherwise more than 1 radiobutton will get selected.
Radiobuttons, but not in the form of buttons, in form of button box. In order to display button box indicatoron/indicator option should be set to 0.

TRadiobutton is used in style class, it automatically applies styling to all the available Radiobuttons.
