RadioButton.Appearance Property

Gets or sets a value determining the appearance of the RadioButton.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

[LocalizableAttribute(true)] 
public Appearance Appearance { get; set; }
/** @property */
public Appearance get_Appearance ()

/** @property */
public void set_Appearance (Appearance value)

public function get Appearance () : Appearance

public function set Appearance (value : Appearance)

Property Value

One of the Appearance values. The default value is Normal.

Exception typeCondition

InvalidEnumArgumentException

The assigned value is not one of the Appearance values.

If the Appearance value is set to Normal, then the RadioButton control is drawn with a circular check box. If the value is set to Button, then the RadioButton is drawn as a control that can be toggled to an up or down state. Either type can display text, an image, or both.

The following code example creates and initializes a RadioButton, gives it the appearance of a toggle control, sets its AutoCheck property to false, and adds it to a Form.

private void InitializeMyRadioButton()
{
   // Create and initialize a new RadioButton. 
   RadioButton radioButton1 = new RadioButton();
   
   // Make the radio button control appear as a toggle button.
   radioButton1.Appearance = Appearance.Button;

   // Turn off the update of the display on the click of the control.
   radioButton1.AutoCheck = false;

   // Add the radio button to the form.
   Controls.Add(radioButton1);
}


private void InitializeMyRadioButton()
{
    // Create and initialize a new RadioButton. 
    RadioButton radioButton1 = new RadioButton();

    // Make the radio button control appear as a toggle button.
    radioButton1.set_Appearance(Appearance.Button);

    // Turn off the update of the display on the click of the control.
    radioButton1.set_AutoCheck(false);
    
    // Add the radio button to the form.
    get_Controls().Add(radioButton1);
} //InitializeMyRadioButton
