Check Boxes & Radio Buttons
Check Boxes are small boxes that you can check on or check off. Unlike radio buttons, Check boxes are mutually exclusive - the value of one Check Box is usually entirely independent of the value of any other.
Click me - I'm a Check box!
Radio Buttons are based on the metaphor of buttons on a car radio (for selecting a radio station), a Radio Button is a small button in a group of buttons where only one button can be selected at a time (unlike a Check Box).
Example of Radio Buttons:
Links (hyperlinks) are a technique for organizing the objects in an application and establishing links between them. These links allow users to move to other modules or to other functionality within the application.
The ePlan application contains Links. These Links are identified by underlined text objects, for example Planning applications on the Navigation area of the Search Types screen.
