How to use radio buttons in ReactJS?

I am new to ReactJS, sorry if this sounds off. I have a component that creates several table rows according to the received data.

Each cell within the column has a radio checkbox. Hence the user can select one

site_name
and one
address
from the existing rows. The selection shall be shown in the footer. And thats where I am stuck.

var SearchResult = React.createClass({
render: function(){
var resultRows = this.props.data.map(function(result){
return (
<tbody>
<tr>
<td><input type="radio" name="site_name" value={result.SITE_NAME}>{result.SITE_NAME}</input></td>
<td><input type="radio" name="address" value={result.ADDRESS}>{result.ADDRESS}</input></td>
</tr>
</tbody>
);
});
return (
<table className="table">
<thead>
<tr>
<th>Name</th>
<th>Address</th>
</tr>
</thead>
{resultRows}
<tfoot>
<tr>
<td>chosen site name ???? </td>
<td>chosen address ????? </td>
</tr>
</tfoot>
</table>
);
}
});


In jQuery I could do something like
$("input[name=site_name]:checked").val()
to get the selection of one radio checkbox type and insert it into the first footer cell.

But surely there must be a Reactjs way, which I am totally missing? Many Thanks

Any changes to the rendering should be change via the state or props (react doc).

So here I register the event of the input, and then change the state, which will then trigger the render to show on the footer.

var SearchResult = React.createClass({
  getInitialState: function () {
    return {
      site: '',
      address: ''
    };
  },
  onSiteChanged: function (e) {
    this.setState({
      site: e.currentTarget.value
      });
  },

  onAddressChanged: function (e) {
    this.setState({
      address: e.currentTarget.value
      });
  },

  render: function(){
       var resultRows = this.props.data.map(function(result){
           return (
               <tbody>
                    <tr>
                        <td><input type="radio" name="site_name" 
                                   value={result.SITE_NAME} 
                                   checked={this.state.site === result.SITE_NAME} 
                                   onChange={this.onSiteChanged} />{result.SITE_NAME}</td>
                        <td><input type="radio" name="address" 
                                   value={result.ADDRESS}  
                                   checked={this.state.address === result.ADDRESS} 
                                   onChange={this.onAddressChanged} />{result.ADDRESS}</td>
                    </tr>
               </tbody>
           );
       }, this);
       return (
           <table className="table">
               <thead>
                   <tr>
                       <th>Name</th>
                       <th>Address</th>
                   </tr>
               </thead>
                {resultRows}
               <tfoot>
                   <tr>
                       <td>chosen site name {this.state.site} </td>
                       <td>chosen address {this.state.address} </td>
                   </tr>
               </tfoot>
           </table>
       );
  }
});
