    Resolved [RESOLVED] One click selection

    For 2 command bottons in a form, let's say "yes" or "no", how to make it as a single switch selection, so that it chooses "yes" or "no" alternatively and I can just make a single click to comfirm the selection?

    Thanks for answering.

    You can have two option buttons (say optYes and optNo) and check which one is selected:
    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub Command1_Click()
    2.     Select Case True
    3.         optYes.Value
    4.             'do something
    5.         optNo.Value 'OR use Case Else (if you only have 2 options)
    6.             'do something else
    7.     End Select
    8. End Sub

    ..or you could use 2 option buttons with Graphical style. They will look just like a command button.

    Re: One click selection

    Sorry for I did not make my question clear.

    For the 2 buttons, I want them to be something like flashing alternatively, maybe 1 sec interval, "yes" is highlighted when "no" is normal and vice versa.

    For selection, I want the selection only depends on a single click, no matter where the cursor is, so command1_click may not be useful.

    To have the slection with just one click, you need grouped controls (just like option button, whre either one can be selected, but not both).
    For for "flashing" stuff, you need some timer-stuff the change the the presentation, but I'm not sure what you really want to show.

    Sorry I cannot get your meaning since I am still a learner of programming, can you give more details on this?

    I want to present it with changing the backcolor of button, with timer to control the frequency. Stuff like Command1.BackColor = &H8000000D

    Re: One click selection

    try this, add 2 command buttons and 1 timer:
    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub Form_Load()
    2.     Command1.Caption = "Yes"
    3.     Command2.Caption = "No"
    4.     Command1.BackColor = vbGreen
    5.     Timer1.Interval = 1000
    6.     Timer1.Enabled = True
    7. End Sub
    8.  
    9. Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    10.     If Command1.BackColor = vbGreen Then
    11.         Command2.Enabled = True
    12.         Command2.BackColor = vbRed
    13.         Command1.BackColor = vbNormal
    14.         Command1.Enabled = False
    15.     Else
    16.         Command1.Enabled = True
    17.         Command2.Enabled = False
    18.         Command1.BackColor = vbGreen
    19.         Command2.BackColor = vbNormal
    20.     End If
    21. End Sub
