I need help with a powershell script.  I am missing 2 features that I cannot figure how to write.  On 1 popup form, I'd like (using radio buttons) two sets of choices and have them spit out 2 variables.  Like this:

Choice 1:
Blue
Green
Red

Choice 2:
Car
Truck
Motorcycle

Results:
Blue Car


My code below will create 1 set of options, now how do I create a second set?  Finally, I'd also like to have a default options radio button selected, any help?  Like set the default radio to Car & blue?

$form.width = 275
 
# create label
$label = New-Object Windows.Forms.Label
$label.text = "Select a button"
$label.height = 30
$label.width = 75
$label.top = 2
$label.left = 25
$form.controls.add($label)
 
# create radiobutton
$RadioButton = New-Object Windows.Forms.radiobutton
$RadioButton.text = "Button Text"
$RadioButton.height = 20
$RadioButton.width = 150
$RadioButton.top = 2
$RadioButton.left = 100
$form.controls.add($RadioButton)

# create event handler for button

$form.Close()
}

$button.text = "OK"
$button.height = 20
$button.width = 50

OK, I found the second part to my question, that was easy.  It's the first part I can't find an answer googling :-(
$RadioButton.checked = "True"

Please bare with me as I am very new to Powershell, & Scripting in General, but It looks like I have found what I am looking for.  It was Groupbox.  Please review my code below and tell me where I may make improvements, but this is exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks for self-posting resolution.

So that worked for you, right? I'm about to try radio button on my script and want to make sure I get it right.
