Using Toggle/Option Buttons


Well-known Member
I put two option buttons on a form and I am trying to figure out how to use them. Where is the Value stored when one of the Options are selected? I want to use these buttons in an If statement.


I tired to test it:
Private Sub Frame244_Click()
If Option246.Value = "1" Then
Text256.Value = "1"
Text256.Value = "2"
End If
End Sub

No luck, I get debug error

I think toggle boxes are either 0 or -1, not 1 or 2.

Also, i don’t think you should use the quote marks, so Option246.value = 0 then yadda yadda yadda

The value is assigned to the frame control:

Private Sub Frame244_Click()
Select Case Frame244
    Case Is = 1
        Text256 = "1"
    Case Is = 2
        Text256 = "2"
End Select    
End Sub

Private Sub Frame244_Click()
Text256 = Frame244
End Sub
Note that you can view and amend the option numbers on the property sheet of the option control.
