So, this has been driving me insane for almost a day.

Finally I have figured out how to get this to work. I presume it isn't
working because the widget hasn't been attached to the DOM. I haven't a
clue why this should matter to the browser, but I have found that putting
the RadioButton.setValue(<state>,<state>) works fine after the item has been
added to the initialized widget!

I know this is an old post, but I couldn't find a work around anywhere!
