How to set the selected radio button?

In the following code sample...

 

<apex:selectRadio value="{!CustomObject__c.CustomField__c}" >

  <apex:selectOption itemValue="true" itemLabel="Yes" />

  <apex:selectOption itemValue="false" itemLabel="No" />

</apex:selectRadio>

 

The second item "No" is selected by default. I want the first item "Yes" to be the one that is, by default, the selected item.

Using controller you can have any radio button default selected .


Below example, I have made 'CANADA' country as default selected.

/*** Controller ***/
public class sampleCon {
String country = 'CANADA';

public PageReference test() {
return null;
}
public List<SelectOption> getItems() {
List<SelectOption> options = new List<SelectOption>();
options.add(new SelectOption('US','US'));
options.add(new SelectOption('CANADA','Canada'));
options.add(new SelectOption('MEXICO','Mexico')); return options;
}
public String getCountry() {
return country;
}
public void setCountry(String country) { this.country = country; }
}



<!-- Page: -->
<apex:page controller="sampleCon">
<apex:form >
<apex:selectRadio value="{!country}">
<apex:selectOptions value="{!items}"/>
</apex:selectRadio><p/>
<apex:commandButton value="Test" action="{!test}" rerender="out" status="status"/>
</apex:form>
<apex:outputPanel id="out">
<apex:actionstatus id="status" startText="testing...">
<apex:facet name="stop">
<apex:outputPanel >
<p>You have selected:</p>
<apex:outputText value="{!country}"/>
</apex:outputPanel>
</apex:facet>
</apex:actionstatus>
</apex:outputPanel>
</apex:page>

 

Hope above example helps you.

{!CustomObject__c.CustomField__c} if value of this custom fileld is true then 'Yes' will be selected..

You can add layout attribute as "Page direction" for select options display the values vertically.
