Using the classwizard, I can't seem to map member variables to radio buttons as I can for other dialog controls.
On the "Member Variables" tab, the control IDs of the radio buttons are not even visible. I want to be able to select and deselect different buttons, and initialize the buttons to the state I want. Also, I want to pull the state of the buttons (selected or not selected) off of them at various times.

This is not hard to do.  Make the first radio button in the list have the group box checked (under properties).  Also make sure the other radio buttons follow the first one in the tab order and do not have the group box checked.  Now the first radio button will be displayed in the member variable list box.  The only type of member variable allowed will be integer.  When you look at that variable, it will be 1 if the first radio button is checked, 2 for the second 3 for the third etc.

thanks, it works. But the variable is 0 for the first control, 1 for the second, etc.
