how to group buttons

This is a discussion on how to group buttons within the Windows Programming forums, part of the Platform Specific Boards category; I'm wondering how to group radiobuttons. MSDN mentions it but doesn't help with the code....

    strange ... 'Programming Windows' have very little info on radio buttons and doesn't mention how they are placed into groups, though my Java book does ...

    Well but that only lets you create one group of buttons, ie. one group of autoradio buttons.

    What if I want one dialog that has one set of buttons to control one thing, and another set of autoradiobuttons to control a second thing. I would need two groups so that the "auto" doesn't uncheck the first group when I select an item from the second.

    I mean I guess the hard way to do this is just create two boxes that LOOK different but are actually the same group, use NON auto buttons and use WinProc to check for which buttons are checked, but then you have to check each and every one whenever you change one, and make sure you don't change the others... could become a monstrous job.

    Was just wondering if there was an easier way to do it.

    If using the resource editor try playing with the TAB order. Introducing another ctrl inbetween the radio buttons may allow different groups.
