I have 2 JRadioButtons which I add to a JRadioGroup.
Initially both radiobuttons are not selected.
I have a JButton also.When the user selects a radioButton & presses the JButton I want both the radiobuttons to be not selected.I tried to do this by using
JRadioButton.setSelected(false).But this is
not working. Please help..

The problem lays with the ButtonGroup. Once you add your
JRadioButton(s) into the ButtonGroup, the ButtonGroup will
MAKE SURE that once it selected that there will always one
that is selected.
So to clear your JRadioButton you need to do:

  • remove all your JRadioButton from the group
  • do setSelected(false)
  • add them all back into the group

  • I would love to hear if there is another way to do it.
I agree. Here's the link:
