Newbie question:  How to group events all to do the same thing

For example,

Private Sub optionButton1_MouseDown(ByVal Button As Integer, ...)
    myFunction1()
End Sub

Private Sub optionButton2_MouseDown(ByVal Button As Integer, ...)
    myFunction1()
End Sub

Private Sub optionButton3_MouseDown(ByVal Button As Integer, ...)
    myFunction1()
End Sub

1)  Is there a more efficient way of handling this for option buttons or other objects?  That is, Run myFunction1() when Event A, B, C... are found?

2)  If the answer to 1) is No, is there a more efficient way of handling this if the option buttons are using a group name or are contained within a frame?

make a control array (ie. name the option buttons all the same thing:

Private Sub optionButton_MouseDown(index as integer, ByVal Button As Integer...)
   msgbox "Option " & index & " clicked"
   myFunction1
end sub

When you name each control the same name it is like an array.

The even shown above will fire when any control in that array is fired.  The index of which control was clicked is then passed into the function.

This can be very useful in dynamically creating controls on a form for instance.

Hi bobbit32, Rog,

The index argument is not available with VBA. That is,...
 
    Private Sub optionButton1_MouseDown(ByVal Button As Integer, ...)

Any ideas?
