Deguix and Rajat brought up some good points about naming. If you have an interest, please help us make the feature more user friendly by casting your vote and/or sharing your comments.

Note that radio buttons will probably be called "radio" since anything else seems too long. Also, a "group/groupbox" is the control that encloses other controls in a border with a name at the top.
