Databinding radio button

Hai All,

I am newbie to VB .NET. I could data bind text boxes and combo box, not radio button. I am trying to data bind a radio button - home and work address. I found a link, after a long search, that works for me.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/04/07/AdvancedBasics/default.aspx

The author created a RadioButtonList (that acts similar to a combo box). Please download the code at the top of the article.

My question is the following:
In Form1, I see buttons and label in the design view. I see RadioButtonList1 control inside the "Button1_Click" event. I am wondering how author declared and created RadioButtonList1.

I see RadioButtonList1 being declared and initialized inside  "Windows Form Designer generated code ". I cannot modify that code using the code editor.

Is RadioButtonList1 created at run time? If so, how could I create one? I appreciate if you give me direction to go about it.

Thanks

Hmmm....looks like the download contains the source code.  You may have to build it to get the dll.  The end result is a user control, inherited from a standard one.

RadiobuttonList is a user control.  You would need to add it to your toolbox.  To do that, right-click on your toolbox and select "Add/Remove Items..."  In the dialog that pops up, click the Browse button and browse to the dll for the RadioButtonList item you have.  When you are done, you should have a new item under the User Controls tab in your toolbox.

Drag it to a form and you will get the code generated as you have seen in the sample apps.
