To display the state, an text field is used. This field is set to non-editable because it’s used only to display data, not to collect it. This is shown as an alternative to using a Label. Notice the text in the field is initialized to “Radio button 2” since that’s the initial selected radio button.

You can have any number of CheckboxGroups on a form.
