I have a project with a long list of radio buttons.  I dont want to use a dropdown list.  

Is it possible to create an array of radiobuttons (or any other components)? ex.  Radiobutton[x] instead of Radiobutton1, 2 etc.

The end goal is to be able to process their states in a loop rather than each one individually.
