Add a Radio Button:
Position the cursor where you want the Radio Button to be.
Click the Radio button on the form palette
to see Radio Button window.
Specify values for Form Tag, Button Label, and Value.
The Form Tag is the name of the field. All Radio Buttons with the
same Form Tag are part of the same field. Only one button may be selected
at a time.
The Button Label is the text that follows the button, and therefore
identifies it, in your page. It is not submitted with the form.

The Form Tag is the name of the field. Each field must have a unique
name, unless you want this check box to be a part of a radio field.
The Button Label is the text that follows the check box, and therefore
identifies it, in your page. It is not submitted with the form to the server.
The Value is the field value when this check box is checked. If a
check box contains a check mark, a string like "Form_Tag=Value" is included
when the form is submitted. You can have multiple check boxes with the same
Form Tag and different values. If multiple check boxes with the same Form
Tag are checked, a string like "FormTag=Value1,Value2,...ValueN" is sent.
If Checked is selected, this Check Box is turned on by default when
the Form is displayed. More than one check box with the same Form Tag
may be Checked.
