    Customizing a Radio Button

    Hi if I change the appearance property of a radio button(option button) to Button it allows me to change the standard icon to a square.
    does anyone have a layout/guide to help configuring this control. As its a very useful control but the standard bullet in a ring icon is small and not good for visually impaired persons.

    Thanks in advance

    What do you want to do? In the button form you have all the usual button customisation options automatically (images, font, text colour and so on). What else do you need?

    You can create your own radiobutton control using GDI. A square typically represents a checkbox however, and it's function is much different than a radiobutton.

    OP means this (Appearance = Button)

    Re: Customizing a Radio Button

    I created a button with a state a while back.. Code is in this thread: http://tech.reboot.pro/showthread.php?tid=3913. Actually it duals as a regular button and a state button.

    Unless you just want a plain button like in the image dunfiddlin posted above?

    No, actually I wanted to know if there is a guide to adjusting the radio button properties and adding your own images. Unfortunately I need to complete the program, and don't have the time to play with it.

    However the above will be good enough for this assignment for completion.

    I guess playing with the control is the way forward, but any tips that you can give would be greatly appreciated

    Re: Customizing a Radio Button

    Play is always the way but there's no great arcane mystery to it. The radio button has an Image property. Select this at design time and click on the ... button and add an image (supports all the usual formats including ... what fun! ... animated gifs!) Alternatively you can add an ImageListt to the project (in the toolbox under Components) and select an image from that by index or name (very handy for rapid changes of image according to state).
