Hello, I'm having a problem with radio_button, I don't know what I'm
doing wrong so please help me checking.
I need the "user" to select the kind of report to load, The options are
given with radio_buttons like this:

<td>MES ACTUAL  <%= radio_button 'tipo','mes', {:checked => 'true'}
<td>ANUAL    <%= radio_button 'tipo','anual', {:checked => 'true'}
<td>ACUMULADO TOTAL  <%= radio_button 'tipo','acumulado',{:checked =>

but they get loaded unchecked, if you check them, then you cant uncheck
them, and that is not what I want.
I just need the to work like simple radio_button that you can check or
unchek, and having to choose only one.

What is wrong?

I'm not sure that it's radio buttons you need for this.  Try
'check_box' instead.

Never mind , I make it work,I change it to this:

<td>MES ACTUAL   <%= radio_button ('reporte','tipo', 'mes' ) %></td>
<td>ANUAL        <%= radio_button ('reporte','tipo', 'anual') %></td>
<td>ACUMULADO TOTAL <%= radio_button

It seems that it needs to have the 2 first arguments name the same way
to work as I needed.

Thanks anyway
