18.11 java.awt.CheckboxGroup (JDK 1.0)

A CheckboxGroup object enforces mutual exclusion (also known as "radio button" behavior) among any number of Checkbox buttons. A Checkbox component can specify a CheckboxGroup object when created or with Checkbox.setCheckboxGroup(). If a Checkbox with a given CheckboxGroup object is selected, then the CheckboxGroup ensures that the previously selected Checkbox becomes unselected.

public class CheckboxGroup extends Object implements Serializable {
    // Public Constructor
            public CheckboxGroup();
    // Public Instance Methods
        #   public Checkbox getCurrent();
        1.1 public Checkbox getSelectedCheckbox();
        #   public synchronized void setCurrent(Checkbox box);
        1.1 public synchronized void setSelectedCheckbox(Checkbox box);
            public String toString();  // Overrides Object
