Android getting value from selected radiobutton


Question

I have a piece of code with three RadioButtons within a RadioGroup. I want to set an onCheckedListener that will show the value of the RadioButton in a Toast. However what I have gotten so far is not working. How do I get the value of the RadioButton and display it in a Toast? This is my code:

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.RadioButton;
import android.widget.RadioGroup;
import android.widget.RadioGroup.OnCheckedChangeListener;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

    RadioGroup rg;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        RadioGroup rg = (RadioGroup) findViewById(R.id.radioGroup1);
        final String value =
            ((RadioButton)findViewById(rg.getCheckedRadioButtonId()))
            .getText().toString();

        rg.setOnCheckedChangeListener(new OnCheckedChangeListener() {
            public void onCheckedChanged(RadioGroup group, int checkedId) {
                Toast.makeText(getBaseContext(), value, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            }
        });
    }
}

XML file:

<RelativeLayout 
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    tools:context=".MainActivity" >

    <RadioGroup
        android:id="@+id/radioGroup1"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
        android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
        android:layout_marginTop="152dp" >

        <RadioButton
            android:id="@+id/radio0"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:text="Choose 1" />

         <RadioButton
            android:id="@+id/radio1"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:text="Choose 2" />

         <RadioButton
            android:id="@+id/radio2"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:text="Choose 3" />
     </RadioGroup>
 </RelativeLayout>

Tested and working. Check this

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.View.OnClickListener;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.RadioButton;
import android.widget.RadioGroup;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class MyAndroidAppActivity extends Activity {

  private RadioGroup radioGroup;
  private RadioButton radioButton;
  private Button btnDisplay;

  @Override
  public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.main);

    addListenerOnButton();

  }

  public void addListenerOnButton() {

    radioGroup = (RadioGroup) findViewById(R.id.radio);
    btnDisplay = (Button) findViewById(R.id.btnDisplay);

    btnDisplay.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {

        @Override
        public void onClick(View v) {

                // get selected radio button from radioGroup
            int selectedId = radioGroup.getCheckedRadioButtonId();

            // find the radiobutton by returned id
            radioButton = (RadioButton) findViewById(selectedId);

            Toast.makeText(MyAndroidAppActivity.this,
                radioButton.getText(), Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

        }

    });

  }
}

xml

<RadioGroup
        android:id="@+id/radio"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"

radioGroup.setOnCheckedChangeListener(new RadioGroup.OnCheckedChangeListener() {
       @Override
       public void onCheckedChanged(RadioGroup group, int checkedId)
       {
           radioButton = (RadioButton) findViewById(checkedId);
           Toast.makeText(getBaseContext(), radioButton.getText(), Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
       }
   }
   );

For anyone who is populating programmatically and looking to get an index, you might notice that the checkedId changes as you return to the activity/fragment and you re-add those radio buttons. One way to get around that is to set a tag with the index:

    for(int i = 0; i < myNames.length; i++) {
        rB = new RadioButton(getContext());
        rB.setText(myNames[i]);
        rB.setTag(i);
        myRadioGroup.addView(rB,i);
    }

Then in your listener:

    myRadioGroup.setOnCheckedChangeListener(new RadioGroup.OnCheckedChangeListener() {
        @Override
        public void onCheckedChanged(RadioGroup group, int checkedId) {
            RadioButton radioButton = (RadioButton) group.findViewById(checkedId);
            int mySelectedIndex = (int) radioButton.getTag();
        }
    });

mRadioGroup.setOnCheckedChangeListener(new RadioGroup.OnCheckedChangeListener() {
    @Override
    public void onCheckedChanged(RadioGroup group, @IdRes int checkedId) {
        RadioButton radioButton = (RadioButton)group.findViewById(checkedId);
    }
});

int genid=gender.getCheckedRadioButtonId();
RadioButton radioButton = (RadioButton) findViewById(genid);
String gender=radioButton.getText().toString();

Hope this works. You can convert your output to string in the above manner. gender.getCheckedRadioButtonId(); - gender is the id of RadioGroup.

just use getCheckedRadioButtonId() function to determine wether if anything is checked, if -1 is return, you can avoid toast appear
