For the modern control, I do not see the layout property as an option. How can I do this for a modern radio button?

Trying to use it, but the items are coming in very small. Is there a way to make the text larger?

How do I make this a mandatory field, where the user cannot move forward through the app unless an option is selected?

I have used following code in the “defaultselecteditems”:

Table({Value: If(IsBlank(ThisItem.'mychoicecolumn'), 'mychoicecolumn'.'mydefaultoption', ThisItem.'mychoicecolumn') })

Am I right in saying we can’t change the order of items in the new Radio Group – they are always sorted alphabetically on the first field? For example, show the radio options from a SharePoint list that displays “Title” column but sorts on another numeric “SortOrder” column. Seems like a bug.

Hi, How can we set the height automatically based on the number of choices? I know of a way where we count the number of choices and then multiply by an approximate line-height… e.g. CountRows(Split(ThisItem.Choices,”;”)) * 35
The issue arises when my choice text has multiple lines…

I am using the modern radio group with a button to patch data to a SPO list. The radio controls are within the gallery, while the button is on the screen. Right now when I patch the data collected, it resets the previous selection and sometimes clears out patched data in the SPO list. I know I need to use the DefaultSelectedItems property, but am unsure of the code. Is this do-able?
