Flutter Radio Button allows users to make a choice among a list. We are likely to use this where you have to pick only one option among a list.
Flutter Radio is a GUI(Graphical User Interface) which allows the user to do a binary choice. This is alternatively a choice among possible outcomes i.e. if the user has a yes/no outcome there we can show Radio as checked/unchecked. Radio can be checked only once. Users can also use its customized properties to make it elegant. This is basically a rounded border with having a solid circle inside it , when it is checked otherwise it's just a blank rounded border.
In Flutter, we can define the Radio of widgets inside the scaffold. Therefore before adding a Radio of a widget we need to define a Scaffold. When we creating a sample flutter app, it comes with the default scaffold.
Radio Button Widget in Flutter With Example
I am going to talk about what is GetWidget Radio widget is and how we implement this on the Flutter app to build an awesome Flutter Radio widget for an app.
So, are you ready to make use of this widget package in the Flutter application? If so, then let's quickly jump into the usage and the ways a Radio can be modified and used to make user-friendly apps. Here I am going to use an open-source flutter UI Library known as GetWidget to build this Radio option widget in Flutter.
How to Start:
Now here is the guide about how we should start developing GFRadio Widget with the use of GetWidget UI Library.
Getting started will guide you on how to start building a beautiful flutter application with GetWidget UI library. You have to install the package from pub.dev, import the package in your Flutter project.
Install Package from pub.dev :
Import full package:

GFRadio Button is a Flutter Radio Button that is a material widget that has a binary value of yes or no. The user can select only one value at a time in the given set of options. The checked value will be a yes and the unchecked value will be a no.
Let us now see the different types of GFRadio buttons in the below section
