Option Button

The option button displays an option with a radio button adjacent to it.

Option buttons work in groups where only one of the group members can be selected.

When the form control is applied the name entered will display as the caption for the form control. This can be changed by selecting the Caption property.

When an item in the group is selected the Selected Option property reports the name of the selected option button.
