you can use the clearSelection() method in ButtonGroup
pre-1.6 for radio buttons you can use an extra hidden radio button, and select it to clear the selected one.

Thank you so much, Master and Savant.

TO: SAVANT:

Suppose that there are a radio button named "radioBtn" and a check box named checkChb".

To clear them, should I use:

radioBtn.clearSelection ( );
checkChb.clearSelection ( );

TO: MASTER:
I checked http://www.rgagnon.com/javadetails/java-0221.html.
It is a little complicated. But I will take time to read the  tip available at the site again.

Thanks!

No, you call clearSelection() on the ButtonGroup

I have a code like this:
 private  void   clearField  (  )
      {
         ;
          ButtonGroup.clearSelection ( );
      }

When I ran the code, I got an error message as the follows:
cannot-find.jpg

you need to call that on your ButtonGroup object, not the class itself.

 ButtonGroup group = new ButtonGroup();

// add your buttons to the group in some other method

 private  void   clearField  (  )
      {
          group.clearSelection ( );
      }

Savant, I still get an error message as below:

ERROR: cannot find symbol
Symbol:  method  clearSelection
location:  class   javax.swing.ButtonGroup


Thanks a lot!


__________________ My Current Code ______________
import    javax.swing.ButtonGroup;

private    ButtonGroup    RadioButtonButtonGroup;
private    ButtonGroup   CheckBoxButtonGroup

RadioButtonButtonGroup  =  new  ButtonGroup (  );
CheckBoxButtonGroup    =  new  ButtonGroup (  );

.
.
private    void   clearField ( )
{
    RadioButtonGroup.clearSelection ( );
   CheckBoxButtonGroup.clearSelection ( );
}

I tested this, works

    private ButtonGroup bg = new ButtonGroup() ;
    private JCheckBox jCheckBox1 = new JCheckBox();
    private JCheckBox jCheckBox2 = new JCheckBox();
        bg.add(jCheckBox1);
        bg.add(jCheckBox2);
        bg.clearSelection();

I created a simple class (as below) to test your code.  I still got the same error:

cannot find symbol
symbol: method clearSelection ( )

I just wonder what classes you imported.



___________ My test code ________
import  javax.swing.*;
import  java.awt.*;

public class test extends JFrame
{
   public static void main ( String [] args)
   {

    ButtonGroup bg = new ButtonGroup() ;
    JCheckBox jCheckBox1 = new JCheckBox();
    JCheckBox jCheckBox2 = new JCheckBox();
        bg.add(jCheckBox1);
        bg.add(jCheckBox2);
        bg.clearSelection();
   }
}________________________________________

When I tested your latest, I got the same error.

I guess I need to upgrade jdk to 1.6.
