Steps to Reproduce

Configure a radio button to refresh a section and fire an activity.

Root Cause

OnClick events is not supported by the RadioButtons control.


The intended use case for this control is a means to select only one out of many options. Hence for a property to be used in conjunction with RadioButtons, we typically specify a Local List, Prompt List or Remote List on the property which feeds the selection options to the RadioButton.

If you are looking for a true/false type of property which can leverage the onClick configuration options, a check box is an OOTB control which support this.

If you need the look and feel of a radio button, then you will need to create a custom control to define the OnClick functionality needed.
