RadioButton is an extension to standard radio button element with theming.

import { RadioButtonModule } from 'primeng/radiobutton';

RadioButton is used as a controlled input with value and ngModel properties.

<div class="flex flex-wrap gap-3">
    <div class="flex align-items-center">
        <p-radioButton name="pizza" value="Cheese" [(ngModel)]="ingredient" inputId="ingredient1"></p-radioButton>
        <label for="ingredient1" class="ml-2">Cheese</label>
    <div class="flex align-items-center">
        <p-radioButton name="pizza" value="Mushroom" [(ngModel)]="ingredient" inputId="ingredient2"></p-radioButton>
        <label for="ingredient2" class="ml-2">Mushroom</label>
    <div class="flex align-items-center">
        <p-radioButton name="pizza" value="Pepper" [(ngModel)]="ingredient" inputId="ingredient3"></p-radioButton>
        <label for="ingredient3" class="ml-2">Pepper</label>

    <div class="flex align-items-center">
        <p-radioButton name="pizza" value="Onion" [(ngModel)]="ingredient" inputId="ingredient4"></p-radioButton>
        <label for="ingredient4" class="ml-2">Onion</label>

RadioButtons can be generated using a list of values.

<div class="flex flex-column gap-3">
    <div *ngFor="let category of categories" class="field-checkbox">
        <p-radioButton [inputId]="category.key" name="category" [value]="category" [(ngModel)]="selectedCategory"></p-radioButton>
        <label [for]="category.key" class="ml-2">{{ }}</label>

RadioButton can also be used with reactive forms. In this case, the formControlName property is used to bind the component to a form control.

<form class="flex flex-column gap-3" [formGroup]="formGroup">
    <div *ngFor="let category of categories" class="field-checkbox">
        <p-radioButton [inputId]="category.key" [value]="category" formControlName="selectedCategory"></p-radioButton>
        <label [for]="category.key" class="ml-2">{{ }}</label>

Invalid state style is added using the ng-invalid and ng-dirty class to indicate a failed validation.

<p-radioButton class="ng-invalid ng-dirty"></p-radioButton>

When disabled is present, the element cannot be edited and focused.

<p-radioButton [disabled]="true"></p-radioButton>
