Using JavaScript, the following is sample code which demonstrates how to display a simple animated slider radio button group to the page.

This animated slider radio button comes with a few basic features. When a selection is chosen, a sliding animation appears. The speed of the animation can be modified via CSS transitions. The look and orientation can also be modified via CSS, with the button group direction being either vertical or horizontal.
