500 points for this one as I am rushed to get the product fixed and into production.
Hello, a few weeks ago, I added to my web form two radio buttons. and a regular asp.net button.
The two radio buttons are labeled
-View Statistics
-View Charts
When the regular asp.net button is pressed, I then check to see which item from the radio button list was selected.
Now for some reason the code is broken and no matter which radio button I select, if I trace into the code, it shows that the very first radio button was selected(View Statistics). Even though I selected the second one(View Charts). Below is my C# code and asp.net code. Can anyone tell me what is going wrong here? Why the code behind shows that the first item is always selected?
Below is my C# code and asp.net code

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page 
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    }
    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        foreach (ListItem item in RadioButtonList1.Items)
        {
            if (item.Value == "View Statistics")
            {
                 break;
            }
            else
            {
                break;
            }
        }
    }
}

because, you've added Selected="True" to the 1st list item. Remove it
also, to get the selected item,  use "RadioButtonList1.SelectedItem.Value"

Awesome Mohan.

RadioButtonList1.SelectedItem.Value
is the best way to get the value. Have a great day!
