You can't... It is one of those read only properties... BUT, what you can do is have 2 option buttons, one left justified and the other right justified.

Then set the following properties for the one you want to use:

    Option1.Visible = True
    Option1.Enabled = True

and set the other one like this:

    Option2.Visible = False
    Option2.Enabled = False


Cheers!
You could do as mcrider suggests, but that not ideal because it means having to have two option buttons in place of one, and to handle the click events in both. You might also conceivably have problems with the buttons being in the same group.

I would do it this way : have no caption for the option button and place a label control (with autosize set to true) next to the button.

Depending on whether you simply want to (a) change the alignment of the caption, or (b) switch the position of the caption relative to the button :

a) set the alignment property of the label

or

b) change the left property of the label itself:

If Label1.Left > Option1.Left Then
    Label1.Left = Option1.Left - Label1.Width - 90
Else
    Label1.Left = Option1.Left + Option1.Width + 90
End If


Hope this helps
