Need to make radio buttons larger

I have functioning radio buttons that I need to make larger. How do I do that?

I change the size but it reverts to the prior value...


Thanks,

Is this WinForms application?

If so, try

chkBox1.AutoSize = false;  // you can do this in code or at runtime depending on where you are chaning size.

OK. It's like a label. But even when I can manually change the size, it's like I am resizing a label. The round button itself does not grow...

can you try to change the font size of that radio button. the size of the radio depends on the font. If you want to keep the same size font, one idea is
- Add only one space for radio button and change the font of that to a bigger size
- place another Label to show your normal font size text

You will not be able to simply use RadioButton from ToolBox and change its size.

The only way you might be able to do this it to inherit RadioButton and create your own control.  In your own control, you can probably change anything you like.

Yes, changing the font did not change the button size. I'll have to over-ride paint as you'd said. Thanks, newbieweb
