Excel userform option button / frames - retrieving value

Hello,

i would like to understand how to know which option button has been chosen in an option group (frame) on my form.
Userform.

How can I find the value, or, which radio button has been selected ?
I have tried me.frame2.blah.... but I can't see a property in the frame2 collection referring to which option/radio button has been selected.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Craig

If you want to get the value of an option button at the TIME OF SELECTION, just use the related click event, e.g.,

Private Sub OptionButton1_Click()
   'your code goes here to test the value of the option button
   myVal = Me.OptionButton1.Value
End Sub

Open in new window


Otherwise, you DO need to iterate through all the controls in the frame to determine which is true, though you need to differentiate between an option button and a checkbox, in case there are check boxes also in the frame, correct? Also, you don't want to test other values of other controls that might be in the frame other than the option button (e.g., perhaps a text box, or combo box, etc., so its best to ascertain that the control you're testing is indeed an option button first).

Private Function get_comment_type(ByVal comment_frame As Frame)

Dim o As Control
Dim comment_type As String

For Each o In comment_frame.Controls
    If o.DisplayStyle = fmDisplayStyleOptionButton Then
        If o.Value = True Then
            comment_type = o.Caption
            Exit For
        End If
    End If
Next o

get_comment_type = comment_type

End Function

Open in new window

Hi again,

I have created the following function to get the value of the option button selected.

Is this the proper way to get this info ?

Private Function get_comment_type(ByVal comment_frame As frame)

Dim o As Control
Dim comment_type As String

For Each o In comment_frame.Controls
    If o.Value = True Then
        comment_type = o.Caption
        Exit For
    End If
Next o

get_comment_type = comment_type

End Function

Open in new window


It works quite well - but I was wondering if it is needed, or if it is accessible directly from the frame object.

Cheers,

Craig
