Option Button Control

An option button displays an option that can be turned on or off.


Usually, option buttons are used as part of an option group to display multiple choices from which the user can select only one.  You can group option buttons by drawing them inside a frame1L3O6RK, a picture box3W9LV25, or directly on a form5272EF.  To group option buttons in a frame or picture box, draw the frame or picture box first, and then draw the option buttons inside.  All option buttons within a frame or picture box are treated as a group.  Option buttons on a form are also treated as a separate group from any option buttons in a frame or picture box.

While option buttons and check boxes14D3ST3 may appear to function similarly, there is an important difference:  when a user selects an option button, the other option buttons in the same group are automatically cancelled.  In contrast, any number of check boxes can be selected.
