Add radio input dynamically to jQuery Mobile fieldset controlgroup

I’ve seen variations on this question yet not my specific case on SO, so here goes.

I’m having trouble adding a new radio input dynamically to an existing control group using jQuery Mobile. It will add, yet the style is not correct & it doesn’t appear to interact with the other inputs correctly.

Here’s my fiddle:

Can anyone see what I’m doing wrong? Or is is a case of regenerating the whole fieldset /controlgroup again? 🙁

Thanks! Code below too…

        <div id="testPage" data-role="page">        <div data-role="content">    <fieldset data-role="controlgroup">        <legend>Radio buttons, vertical controlgroup:</legend>            <input type="radio" name="radio-choice-1" id="radio-choice-1" value="choice-1" checked="checked">            <label for="radio-choice-1">Cat</label>            <input type="radio" name="radio-choice-1" id="radio-choice-2" value="choice-2">            <label for="radio-choice-2">Dog</label>            <input type="radio" name="radio-choice-1" id="radio-choice-3" value="choice-3">            <label for="radio-choice-3">Hamster</label>            <input type="radio" name="radio-choice-1" id="radio-choice-4" value="choice-4">            <label for="radio-choice-4">Lizard</label>    </fieldset>        </div>    </div>$('<input type="radio" name="radio-choice-5" id="radio-choice-5"><label for="radio-choice-5">Horse</label>')    .appendTo("fieldset");$("fieldset").trigger('create');

You need to use name="radio-choice-1" as you have used in above. This solves you behavior problem

Behavior problem solved with below change
Your modified code for dynamically adding radio.

 $('<input type="radio" name="radio-choice-1" id="radio-choice-5"><label for="radio-choice-5">Horse</label>').appendTo("fieldset");

Style problem solved with below change
Just recreate div instead of fieldset
