Put each option box array on a seperate container control (i.e a picturebox or frame).  You will the be able to select one option for each array.

Say you have 2 arrays of option boxes called optArray1() and optArray2() and there are 4 elements (optionboxes) in each array.  You will then have a total of 8 options boxes, right?

They will be:
optArray1(0)
optArray1(1)
optArray1(2)
optArray1(3)

and

optArray2(0)
optArray2(1)
optArray2(2)
optArray2(3)

If you want to select one option from each array of optionboxes, you have to put each array of option boxes on its own, seperate container control.  (A container control is a control that can be the parent of other control, i.e, the Picturebox and Frame controls are examples of such)

If you place 2 pictureboxes (Picture1 and Picture2) on a form, and you put the first array of option boxes (optArray1()) on Picture1 and the second array of option boxes (optArray2()) on Picture2, then you will be able to select one of the options from optArray1() and one option from optArray2().

This is also valid, even if you don't create a control array (array of option boxes in this case).  You can group all option boxes from which the user can only select one option on its owner container control.

I hope this answers your question.

Ok...When I did that...The first option of the array is always on (dot is inside of it). No matter what other option I click, the first button of the array has the dot in it.

Try setting the 'Value' property of the option box that you want to be selected to 'True'.  If you don't want any optionbox to be selected, set all optionboxes' 'Value' property to 'False'.
