hi experts

I have two questions:

can you get an option pane with a check box in it that will affect the outcome? for example if it is checked then you save a certain part of the program and if not it saves the default..whatever..

second I need an example of an option pane that would have three buttons. yes, no, and cancel and how to know know which button was pressed and accordingly take action


thanks
