    Default checking of radio button in a group box

    Sir,


    On a window I have a group box which contains two radio buttons.

    what I require is that when my window opens one of the radio button in that group box should be in the checked state. ( The window contains various other controls also like edit boxes and combo boxes )

    How can I do so.

    Just send a message to the checkbox. I think it's like ??_SETCHECK.

    Yes. To set a radio button send a BM_SETCHECK message to the control with wParam set to BST_CHECKED, to clear it set wParam to BST_UNCHECKED.

    And do this under the WM_INIT or WM_CREATE msg.
