What's wrong with using a dropdown menu? Anyway, I would use colors and an icon to indicate what the current budget is, in the place of where currently the blue text says "budget". With the default being set to just "budget", and offering up alternatives like savings account, government grants, sales income. Example: Functionally it'd work like a radio ...

I think you're referring to toggle switches here. That being said, Radio buttons let users select one option from two or more choices whereas a toggle switch mimics a physical switch that allows users to turn things on or off. You can also refer to these UX guidelines by Microsoft on when to use which control: Guidelines for toggle switch control ...

You could implement it the way typeform does it: Scroll and skip the questions you don't want to answer, and let radio buttons and checkboxes retain their default behaviour.

I would most definitely use check boxes (as radio buttons would be unhandy for mobile devices) with option to leave question unanswered. If skipping is not an option, then I'd suggest you allow users to 'remove question'. This would clarify to users that they don't need to answer irrelevant questions and they can be skipped.

Neither, sort of. Classic radio buttons are intended for mandatory, single selections. I don't really like radio buttons because they are hard to click and it's not obvious (or consistent) that the labels can be clicked. Classic checkboxes are intended for single on/off selections. Button groups are sometimes used in situations where there is one or zero ...

I'm Assuming your user will move from one question to another question/page with the help of a button, let's Call is 'Next'. All you have to do is rename you button as 'Skip' till the time when no check-boxes/radio boxes are selected. As soon as the user selects atleast an option the button changes to 'Next'. Note: Use the standard convention only, for ...

Have you considered putting each choice on a button and allowing the buttons to have distinctive depressed and undepressed images? Javascript coding them as you describe in option 3 would allow your users to choose zero to one of the provided options. Meanwhile, the use of buttons might make the hidden behaviour more intuitive.

This sounds like you're trying for a "none of the above" option. A simple radio button option at the end of the list would do just fine. No need to make things complicated. e.g. Which of the following is an animal? ( ) Tree ( ) Car ( ) Radiowave (o) None of the Above

I would like to see checkbox where i can select multiple items (fruits). Everyone loves fruits and they might love more than 1 or 2 fruits. So, I prefer checkbox. Radio buttons are used to get a single answer rather than multiple (Like yes/no, close ended questions). Hope this helps :)

I can't answer your direct question as to whether or not mixing radios and checkboxes in one list has any conclusive testing data. But I will say it's not something I've seen. I'd suggest considering some alternatives. Visually separate the 'none of the above' checkbox from the rest Select the fruit you like: [ ] apples [ ] bananas [ ] oranges ...
