Radiobutton question


I want to do the following:

2 Groupboxes, in each of them a radiobox. If I select the one, the other should be de-selected

On Groupbox1 I want to have 2 other radiobuttons, which should switch by itself, so it should not change the radiobuttons above

Is it possible?

As I can understand, you have:
Two group boxes - GroupBox1 and GroupBox2
In GroupBox1 - RadioButton1, RadioButton2 and RadioButton3
In GroupBox2 - RadioButton4

You want "RadioButton1 & RadioButton2" to switch and "RadioButton3 & RadioButton4" to switch independently.

This is how I would do it:

Add a "Panel" in GroupBox1 - Panel1
Move RadioButton3 to Panel1.

Panels are invisible at runtime and will isolate other radio buttons. Make sure RadioButton3 is in Panel1 ; if you move Panel1, RadioButton3 should move along with it.

Add code for the independent radio buttons to switch:

    Private Sub RadioButton3_CheckedChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles RadioButton3.CheckedChanged
        If RadioButton3.Checked Then
            RadioButton4.Checked = False
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub RadioButton4_CheckedChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles RadioButton4.CheckedChanged
        If RadioButton4.Checked Then
            RadioButton3.Checked = False
        End If
    End Sub
