Of course--if the handle is invalid, it's invalid for whatever
reason/purpose you try to make of it...

I don't write guis, but from the doc's for a radiobutton I find the

I don't know what the Min/Max properties are, but I'm guessing your if()
test isn't being satisfied as S Lionel suggested.

The example code snippet in the doc uses a test written as

if (get(hObject,'Value') == get(hObject,'Max'))
% Radio button is selected, take appropriate action
% Radio button is not selected, take appropriate action
