Title: Visual C++ Class Wizard will not treat radio buttons properly.

Value: 200 points

Visual C++ 4.0, under Windows 95

Create a dialog based project and modify the default language from English(US) to English(UK) (necessary for me).
Include a selection of controls including at least one radio button.
Activate Class Wizard/Member Variables.  The list of Control IDs does NOT include that for the radio button(s).  Why.
(Teach yourself Viaual C++ in 21 days, Gurewich and Gurewich chapter 7, assumes no problems here.)

I have tried Save all files - no good.
I need an expert who has met or can reproduce the problem - and solve it.  Please - no guesses.

Radio buttons do not show up in the variable list, even for English (US). I do not know why MS choose to do this, but this was done on purpose.

I believe the reason for this might be that rather than a variable for each radio button, you would want a single variable for a group of radio buttons, which class wizard is not really set up to handle in 4.x.

The work around, at least the one which I have used is the past, is to add the variable my self, and respond to the messages for the radio buttons myself.

As a beginner working through "Teach yourself Visual C++ in 21 days", I need to know how to get round the problem which the book does not even acknowledge.  lwiding's answer does not tell me how to do that.

Radio Buttons must have group property.
So you should set it, then you can see it's ID in
Wizard/Member window.

Excellent.  Thank you.  The book was clear after all.  It was my mistake.  Anyway, thanks.
