How to create a custom radio button

Hello, guys in this tutorial we will create a custom radio button using HTML & CSS

What radio button means?

In HTML, a radio button is a graphical control element that allows the user to choose only one of a predefined set of mutually exclusive options. The radio button is also known as the option button

A radio button in HTML can be defined using the <input> tag, like below example

<input type="radio" name="answer">
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Note: The input tag only creates a radio button. if you want to add a label also then you have to insert the label yourself.

Hello, guys In this tutorial we will try to solve above mention query. and also we will learn how to create a custom radio button using HTML & CSS

First, we need to create three files index.html and style.css then we need to do code for it.

Step:1

Add below code inside index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8" />
  <title>Custom Radio Buttons</title>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
  <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge" />
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
  <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=IBM+Plex+Sans:wght@500&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">
</head>
<body>
  <div class="wrapper">
    <input type="radio" name="select" id="one" checked>
    <input type="radio" name="select" id="two">

    <label for="one" class="option option-1">
      <span>One</span>
    </label>
    <label for="two" class="option option-2">
      <span>Two</span>
    </label>
  </div>
</body>
</html>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step:2

Then we need to add code for style.css which code I provide in the below screen.

* {
  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  outline: 0;
  color: #444;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  font-family: 'IBM Plex Sans', sans-serif;
}
html, body {
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  height: 100vh;
  background: #180f2f;
}
.wrapper {
  display: inline-flex;
  background: #fff;
  height: 100px;
  width: 250px;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: space-evenly;
  border-radius: 5px;
  padding: 20px 15px;
  box-shadow: 5px 5px 30px rgb(0 0 0 / 20%);
}
.wrapper .option {
  background: #fff;
  height: 100%;
  width: 100%;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: space-evenly;
  cursor: pointer;
  border-radius: 5px;
  padding: 0 10px;
  border: 2px solid #180f2f;
  transition: all 0.5s ease;
  margin: 0 10px;
}
input[type="radio"] {
  display: none;
}
input#one:checked ~ .option-1,
input#two:checked ~ .option-2 {
  background: #180f2f;
  border-color: #180f2f;
}

input#one:checked ~ .option-1 span,
input#two:checked ~ .option-2 span {
  color: #fff;
}
.wrapper .option span {
  font-size: 20px;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
