My suggestion is "toggle"

If you are talking about user interface, then this might be what you are looking for.
These are the little labeled circles where, by clicking on one, you automatically 'unclick' the other choices. Fits perfectly for true/false, etc. where the choices are mutually exclusive (e.g., age: 1-20, 21-40, >51).

The context is not very clear to me here. However when giving instructions for dealing with typical tabbed controls schalter can often refer simply to a button. You say these are yes/no etc controls. IF they are the standard microsoft style boxes (i.e. a qusetion and then a chose of one or more buttons to press) then they are dialog boxes.
Hope this helps
