[android-developers] Re: Alternative to radio buttons?

I have this situation quite often, and simply stick to three
ImageButtons. It means you need pressed and static states for each
button, controlled by an xml selector as the drawable, and of course
you have to manage the states yourself, i.e. set the pressed button as
'pressed' and the other two as static.

If you go down this route, manage the states in a runnable which fires
about 100millis after the press, so that the default button 'up'
action doesn't undo your work.
