It possible to give a radiobutton two values

I have a radiobutton list which I populate by a XML file into a dataset then populate the radiobutton list from the dataset

rbtnList. DataTextField = "text"
rbtnList.DataValueField = "Value"

but I want to add a third column and call it later Is this possible and if so how would I do it.

Not possible.

Why exactly are you looking for a third column?

I have a text field which obviously is the display on the radio button list
I have a value field which is an int which is saved to the Db as what type of letter was sent
but now I want another value to tell it where to get the necessary data

when u r fetching the data

select valueFieldCol1 + '$' + valueFieldCol2 as valueField,textfield from tblName

Now when u r sending to the d/b u could something like this

for int field send rbList.SelectedValue.Split('$')[0];

and for the other send rbList.SelectedValue.Split('$')[1];

if u r using xml then $ won't work, replace it something else
