I have 5 x 5 radio button, the columns are in a button group, is it possible to have the columns in another button group where each button is a member of two groups?

ppl
A   1   2   3   4   5

B   1   2   3   4   5

C   1   2   3   4   5

D   1   2   3   4   5

E   1   2   3   4   5

In simple terms, no two rows (people A -> e) can have the same column value.

Hi
Are you using AWT? With AWT is this not possible, in this case you must implement listener and to code the behavior by yourself.
I think Swing is here more powerful. Have a look at java.swing.JRadiobutton and java.swing.ButtonGroup. You can add JButton's to the ButtonGroup. All JButtons in a ButtonGroup build an own Column. So theoretical, you can add a JButton to two different Groups, but I have never tried this.  

Hope this helps.

Regards
Mark

Well, I tried that, but if you put the same component in two different groups things don't work that well.  I made a 3x3 grid but clicking in any of the radio buttons caused any that was on to turn off even if it couldn't be in the same group.  So in short, the answer is no, you can't do it directly.  However, as with any component you could probably create your own special object that could handle this.  Not sure what it would be off the top of my head though.

Why not have 5 button groups, one for each column?
