Hide TRadioGroup or TGroupBox frame?

I am trying to group TRadioButtons together, but I do not want a frame/border around the groupings.

IOW, imagine 4 TRadioButtons on a form.  Of these 4, 2 belong to one group, and the remaining 2 belong to a second group.  But I do  not want borders/frames/bevels around any of the groupings.

Both the TRadioGroup and TGroupBox components have no way to turn off the border/frame/bevel.

I am using Delphi 3.

Any suggestions?

well, this should work,

drop two panels as container (bevels can adjusted there)
in each panel drop two radios

? just drop your radios on a form

for two set an equal groupindex (1 for example)
for the other two set another equal groupindex (2 for example)

thats all, just from head

Like kretzschmar said, you can drop a panel on the form and add the radio butons to it.

Or

You can derive your own radio button group and override the paint method:

type
  tRBG=class(tRadioGroup)
  protected
    procedure Paint; Override;
  end;

procedure tRBG.Paint;
var
  R: TRect;
begin
  with Canvas do begin
    R := ClientRect;
    Brush.Color := Color;
    FillRect(R);
  end;
end;

You can either add the new component to a package, or just add it to the form at run time:

procedure TForm2.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  with tRBG.Create(self) do begin
    Parent:=Self;
    Left:=10;
    Top:=40;
    Width:=200;
    Height:=100;
    Items.Add('One');
    Items.Add('Two');
  end;
end;

Telepathic? It might be a talent I didn't know I had!

I figured panels would work and figured that's what you meant.
