Check Radio Button Dynamically with JavaScript

In this tutorial we will learn How To Check Radio Button Dynamically with JavaScript. To dynamically select radio button we can use JavaScript checked property, getElementById() method and onclick event.

onclick event

JavaScript onclick event attaches the click event with the JavaScript function or it triggers the click event for HTML element.

In this example onclick event is used to execute a JavaScript function which will check the radio button dynamically.

getElementById() method

JavaScript getElementById() method selects or targets the HTML element by it's id.

checked property

JavaScript checked property either checks or unchecks the radio button or HTML checkbox or it is used to check the current state of these two input elements.

<title>Check Radio Button Dynamically with JavaScript</title>

<label for="male">Male</label>
<input type="radio" value="male" id="male" name="gender">
<label for="female">Female</label>    
<input type="radio" value="female" id="female" name="gender">
<button onclick="checkMale()">Select Male</button>
<button onclick="checkFemale()">Select Female</button>       
<script src="script.js"></script>
