I have Radio Button on my ASP.NET, C# form. Once user clicks on it, user can't uncheck it. Is there any way so that user can uncheck the radio button?

I'm not an expert at C#, but try this:
checkboxname.checked = false

Open in new window

By the way, checkboxname should be the name the checkbox has on your form...

Forgive my C# skills, it's been a long time.  I didn't end my line with a semi-colon, and should have.  
checkboxname.checked = false;

While I said checkboxname above, I actually meant radiobuttonname.  If that doesn't work, try it this way:
document.Form1.radiobuttonname.checked = false;

Open in new window

This solution would help you out.  You have to do it on the JavaScript end.  So you can either push out the JavaScript from your C# code when needed (like with Response.Write).  Or you can put it on your page with a button (like "Reset Selection") that runs the JavaScript function.

What are the options for your radio buttons? Why dont you add another one which basically is NO SELECTION type

eg radio buttons say Yes, No to a question. Add another one say Unsure

so clicking Yes then clicking Unsure is like unchecking Yes

<asp:RadioButton ID="Btn1" runat="server" onclick="javascript:return Checked(this);" />
   
    <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
        function Checked(obj) {
            obj.disabled = true;
        }
    </script>

Hi,

It  seems to me that you are trying to use radio buttons in a way they  were not designed to be used. You cannot uncheck a radiobutton unless you have multiple radiobuttons  of the same group.

<asp:RadioButton ID="RadioButton1" runat="server" GroupName = "First" />
<asp:RadioButton ID="RadioButton2" runat="server" GroupName = "First" />
<asp:RadioButton ID="RadioButton3" runat="server" GroupName = "First" />

Else if you have only one radiobutton use a checkbox instead.

Regards,
VSS
