CButton states

Hi,
I have 8 CButton object on a sidebar dialog.
I would like to be able to synchronize them,which mean,when i push one button,and then another one, i
would like that the first pushed button will be released
and the second one will be pressed.
Just one button should be pressed each time.
I don't know how to realese CButton from its pressed
state.

Thanks a lot for any help.

try SetState(TRUE) to press and SetState(FALSE) to release

you could get the state of a button using GetState()

if(m_Btn1.GetState() & 0x0004)//if btn1 pressed
{
   m_Btn1.SetState(FALSE) ;//release btn1
   m_Btn2.SetState(TRUE) ;//press btn2
}

Hi Priyesh,
It dosen't work.
if(m_Btn1.GetState() & 0x0004)//if btn1 pressed
When I use Debug mode it dosen't get inside the condition.
So I tried :
if(m_Btn1.GetState()!=0 )
but it dosen't release the button
m_Btn1.SetState(FALSE) ;//this line dosen't work

okay dani333,

try this

void CTestdlgDlg::OnOK()
{
     CButton* pButton = (CButton*)GetDlgItem(IDC_BUTTON1) ;
     pButton->SetState(!(pButton->GetState()&0x0004)) ;
}

if you have a button with id IDC_BUTTON1, this code will toggle the button. works for me in VC6.

Hi try this...

Use the resource editor to place "radio buttons" in your dialog.  Then change the style properties on each button to "Push-like".

hope this helps.
