Radio buttons versus checkboxes

Many people confuse checkboxes and radio buttons. There is a fundamental difference between them. In a checkbox group, a user can select more than one option. Each checkbox operates individually, so a user can toggle each response "on" and "off."

Radio buttons, however, operate as a group and provide mutually exclusive selection values. A user can select only one option in a radio button group.
If you want to enable your user to select more than one option in a group of choices, use checkboxes. If you want to restrict your user to one option, use radio buttons.

For more information on checkboxes and radio buttons, see "Inserting checkboxes and radio buttons" in Using Dreamweaver or in Dreamweaver Help (Help > Using Dreamweaver).
