Update option button value

P: n/a
Hi All,
Is there anyway I can select an option button by clicking a command
button? From what I have found out so far, unlike a check box, and option
button has no value so I can't assign it one.

TIA,

Mark

Do you mean a radio button in a Frame? The radio button can be an
option button, check box or toggle button. The Frame that holds those
controls holds the value selected. E.g.:

+-Print Type ---+
| O Printer |
| O Preview |
+---------------+

The frame "Print Type" will hold a number based on which option is
selected. You can assign any number you want to each option. When you
put the frame control on the form be sure the Wizard button is on. The
Wizard will walk you thru the process.

Once the wizard is finished click on one of the option buttons & look at
it's properties. There will be a property named "Option Value" under
the Data tab. The value associated w/ the Option Value will be what the
frame returns when that option button is clicked.
