ButtonCount Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies the number of buttons in a CommandGroup or OptionGroup. Available at design time and run time.

Control.ButtonCount[ = nNumber]

Property Values

nNumber
Specifies the number of buttons for the control.

Remarks

Use the ButtonCount property to dynamically set the number of buttons contained in a CommandGroup or OptionGroup.

If you change the number of buttons at run time, names are automatically assigned to the new buttons. The buttons are assigned the name CommandN for a CommandGroup or OptionN for an OptionGroup where N is the number of the button added. For example, if there are four buttons in the CommandGroup and the Buttons property setting is changed to 5, the new button is named Command5.

Example

The following example creates an OptionGroup control and places the control on a form. The OptionGroup control has three buttons; depending on the option button you click, a circle, ellipse, or square appears. The ButtonCount property is used to specify the number of buttons in the OptionGroup. The Buttons and Caption properties specify the text displayed next to each option button.

The Shape control is used to create the circle, ellipse, and square. The OptionGroup control's Click event uses a DO CASE ... ENDCASE structure and the Value property to display the appropriate shape when you click an option button.
