              <label class="form-check-label" for="materialChecked">Material checked</label>
            </div>

            

Checked state

Add checked attribute to the <input> element yo pre-select radio button when the page loads.

The checked attribute is a boolean attribute.

The checked attribute can be used with <input type="checkbox"> and <input type="radio">.

Default checkbox



            <!-- Default checked -->
            <div class="custom-control custom-radio">
              <input type="radio" class="custom-control-input" id="defaultChecked2" name="defaultExample2" checked>
              <label class="custom-control-label" for="defaultChecked2">Default checked</label>
            </div>

            <!-- Material checked -->
            <div class="form-check">
              <input type="radio" class="form-check-input" id="materialChecked2" name="materialExample2" checked>
              <label class="form-check-label" for="materialChecked2">Material checked</label>
            </div>

            

Name property

To create a group of radio buttons (to enable single-choice behavior) you have to set to each of the <input> the same value of the name property.

Default checkbox

In the example below we set name="groupOfDefaultRadios" to each input.



            <!-- Group of default radios - option 1 -->
            <div class="custom-control custom-radio">
              <input type="radio" class="custom-control-input" id="defaultGroupExample1" name="groupOfDefaultRadios">
              <label class="custom-control-label" for="defaultGroupExample1">Option 1</label>
            </div>

            <!-- Group of default radios - option 2 -->
            <div class="custom-control custom-radio">
              <input type="radio" class="custom-control-input" id="defaultGroupExample2" name="groupOfDefaultRadios" checked>
              <label class="custom-control-label" for="defaultGroupExample2">Option 2</label>
            </div>

            <!-- Group of default radios - option 3 -->
            <div class="custom-control custom-radio">
              <input type="radio" class="custom-control-input" id="defaultGroupExample3" name="groupOfDefaultRadios">
              <label class="custom-control-label" for="defaultGroupExample3">Option 3</label>
            </div>

          

Material checkbox MDB Pro component

In the example below we set name="groupOfMaterialRadios" to each input.



            <!-- Group of material radios - option 1 -->
            <div class="form-check">
              <input type="radio" class="form-check-input" id="materialGroupExample1" name="groupOfMaterialRadios">
              <label class="form-check-label" for="materialGroupExample1">Option 1</label>
            </div>

            <!-- Group of material radios - option 2 -->
            <div class="form-check">
              <input type="radio" class="form-check-input" id="materialGroupExample2" name="groupOfMaterialRadios" checked>
              <label class="form-check-label" for="materialGroupExample2">option 2</label>
            </div>

            <!-- Group of material radios - option 3 -->
            <div class="form-check">
              <input type="radio" class="form-check-input" id="materialGroupExample3" name="groupOfMaterialRadios">
              <label class="form-check-label" for="materialGroupExample3">option 3</label>
            </div>

          

Disabled state

Add the disabled boolean attribute to the <input> and the custom indicator and label description will be automatically styled and blocked.

A disabled <input> element is unusable and un-clickable.

Default radio buttons



            <!-- Default unchecked disabled -->
            <div class="custom-control custom-radio">
              <input type="radio" class="custom-control-input" id="defaultUncheckedDisabled2" name="disabledGroupExample" disabled>
              <label class="custom-control-label" for="defaultUncheckedDisabled2">Default unchecked disabled</label>
            </div>

            <!-- Default checked disabled -->
            <div class="custom-control custom-radio">
              <input type="radio" class="custom-control-input" id="defaultCheckedDisabled2" name="disabledGroupExample" checked disabled>
              <label class="custom-control-label" for="defaultCheckedDisabled2">Default checked disabled</label>
            </div>

            

Material checkbox MDB Pro component

To provide a proper cursor styling for material radio button, apart from disabled attribute you’ll also need to add the .disabled class to the <label> element.



            <!-- Material unchecked disabled -->
            <div class="form-check">
              <input type="radio" class="form-check-input" id="materialUncheckedDisabled2" name="disabledGroupExample2" disabled>
              <label class="form-check-label disabled" for="materialUncheckedDisabled2">Material unchecked disabled</label>
            </div>

            <!-- Material checked disabled -->
            <div class="form-check">
              <input type="radio" class="form-check-input" id="materialCheckedDisabled2" name="disabledGroupExample2" checked disabled>
              <label class="form-check-label disabled" for="materialCheckedDisabled2">Material checked disabled</label>
            </div>
