ASP.NET MVC3 RadioButtonList

Small rant while I’m sorting this out – why oh why oh why doesn’t ASP.NET MVC3 ship with a RadioButtonList Html Helper? Yes I know I can roll my own, but surely, having implemented a DropDownList, they could have popped a RadioButtonList in there for us as well – maybe with an annotation on the model to say which I would prefer? There are just so many times when it just makes the data entry on the front end soooo much quicker for small lists to have radio buttons instead of a drop down.

It seems like such an obvious thing that should be in the core of the code…and I’ve spent a fair amount of time looking through the documentation, thinking I must be missing something. Grrrrr.
