How about setting the focus to another component on the form


If you select a radio button manually, you will see the rectangle as you change focus

MikeLittleWood meant something like this

procedure TForm1.RadioButton1Enter(Sender: TObject);
RadioButton1.Checked:=not RadioButton1.Checked;

Well, Since you can not do it without writing an OwnerDrawn button and setting
it's itemState to ODS_NOFOCUSRECT, I'd suggest just placing a label next to it
and remove the caption. You can set the Label's FocusControl property to the
RadioButton and any accelerator's will work correctly, yet you won't get a focus

I meant remove the radiobutton's caption, not the label's, if you were confused.
