JQuery Plugin That Makes All Radio Buttons Automatically Deslectable

Selectable radio buttons is a jQuery plugin that automatically makes all radio buttons selectable.

Mouse/click and keydown/keyup is used to detect interaction with the radio button. If the user clicks or presses the space bar on a specific radio button, it is deselected.

A custom event called done_changing fires next, so event handlers can do something after selecting the radio button’s new state.

How to make use of it:

1. Load the required jQuery JavaScript library on the HTML web page.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>

2. Suppose you have a bunch of radio buttons on the web page.

<input type="radio" id="age1" name="age" value="30">
<label for="age1">0 - 30</label><br>
<input type="radio" id="age2" name="age" value="60">
<label for="age2">31 - 60</label><br>
<input type="radio" id="age3" name="age" value="100">
<label for="age3">61 - 100</label>

3. The primary JavaScript (jQuery script) to make these radio buttons unselectable is similar to checkboxes.

    $(document.body).on('click mousedown keydown keyup', 'input[type="radio"]', function(e){
      let radioButton = $(e.target);
      if(('keydown' === e.type  && 32 === e.keyCode) || 'mousedown' === e.type){
        radioButton.data('originally_checked', radioButton.prop('checked'));
      if(('keyup' === e.type && 32 === e.keyCode) || 'click' === e.type){
          radioButton.prop('checked', false).removeAttr('checked');
        } else {
          radioButton.prop('checked', true).attr('checked', 'checked');

4. Or load the deselectable-radio-buttons.js script after the jQuery library.

<script src="deselectable-radio-buttons.js"></script>
