Radio button groups

Hi Experts,

Stupid question for you:  I've never had a problem with radio buttons till now.  I've got 2 radio button groups.  Each in their own "group box" from the control picker in VC.  Of course, I want them to be mutually exclusive - but they're doing all sorts of weird things like unselecting one of them in one group when I click on one in the other group.  How the heck do I group them properly so that they belong to their own groups properly?

    Its most likely a tab order thing. Check the tabbing order (CTRL-D while using the resource view) and make sure the tab order on the radio buttons is consistent with their grouping. Aslo, on the first radio button in each group view the properties and select the 'group' check box. This groups this radio button, and all others in the tab order (until the next radio button marked with the 'group' property) into the same group.

    Hope that makes some sense!
