Radio Buttons

I have a group of buttons in a dialog, as well as a few text fields.  I have the need to update the dialog box
inside my Dialog class.   To update the text fields, I make this call: m_text.CWnd::SetWindowText(text) and it works great.  But I am unable to update the group of  radio buttons. I have tried: m_airid.CWnd:CheckRadioButton(0,5,4)...with 0 being the first button in the group, 5 being the last, and 4 being the one I want checked off?   Any idea why this won't work.   FYI, m_airid is the first button in the group and is the only button declared as a member variable of type CButton.  In properties, it is selected as group, while the other 5 buttons are not.

Any ideas???

Thanks!!

CheckRadioButton takes three IDs, first argument ID of the first button in group, second - ID of the last button in group, third ID of the button to check. Also be sure your ridio buttons are in group. It means the first button must have group style. The following button must be in tab order.

Thanks.   When you say argument, I assume you mean 0 for the first one and 5 for the
last one...in a six button group. I am doing this already.....The tab order is also correct?
Any thing else to look for ?

Thanks again.

No when I mean arguments I meand correct buttons IDs, for instance ID_FIST_RADIO, ID_SECOND_RADIO etc.

IT didn't seem to work.  I jsut went around it, and used CButton::SetCheck...and handled each button in the group myself.
