Adding a radio button


I have an MFC application which has numerous controls and radio buttons. When I add a new radio button, to a group of existing radio buttons, I have to use Ctrl+D to go through all the controls to ensure that the new button follows the previous ones in the group. THIS IS A PAIN!!!

Is there an easier way to do this? I can imagine an scenario where somebody has 50+ controls which they would have to go through just to add an extra radio button. Surely there is an easier way to do it?

Press Ctrl+D.
Now select the control in the tab order before your new radio WHILST HOLDING THE CTRL KEY - it should preserve the existing tab order, now select your new radio - it should be where you want it in the tab order.

Alternative - modify the .rc file in notepad - the tab order is the order the controls appear in the dialog resource.
