//Your RadioButton must do like the RadioGroup Component.

unit MyRadioGroupComp;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, ExtCtrls;

type
  TMyRadioGroup = class(TRadioGroup)
  private
    { Private declarations }
  protected
    { Protected declarations }
    procedure CreateParams(var Params: TCreateParams);override;
  public
    { Public declarations }
  published
    { Published declarations }
  end;

procedure Register;

implementation

procedure Register;
begin
  RegisterComponents('Samples', [TMyRadioGroup]);
end;

{ TRadioGroup1 }

procedure TMyRadioGroup.CreateParams(var Params: TCreateParams);
begin
  inherited;
  Params.ExStyle := Params.ExStyle + WS_EX_TRANSPARENT;
end;

end.

Hi borrt,

In additional you may to try to use TLabel with Transparent property=true instead caption of radiogroup. And then, as usual, write onClick events for TLabel to switch in RadioGroup.

There is a group of components on Torrys
and the Super Page that show how this
is done. Look for TRCntls. Or if you
can't find them, I'll send you a copy
if you e-mail me directly...
