Default C# adding radio buttons from within the application

I have this program that I have hundreds of radio buttons already on it, but I want to not have to change the code and recompile every time I want to add a new radio button.

For each radio button, I have several text boxes that are filled by set text files.

if (radioButton1.Checked == true)
 System.IO.StreamReader myFile =
 new System.IO.StreamReader("\\file.txt");
 string steps = myFile.ReadToEnd();
 textBox1.Text = steps;

textBox1.Text = steps;
This of course is just one out of many different radio buttons, and many different text boxes per radio button, each text would need its own .txt file also.

So I can create a file easily from within the program. But I am wondering how I would set a menu option for adding new radio buttons, so the program can be changed though the program itself. Without having to add code and and recompile. I don't want to ask if this can be done, because I know there is a deffinate way, I just do not know what it is I am looking for to figure out how to do this.

How is it I will add a new radio button from within the application, and update the executable without compiling again?

Default XML

I'm trying to do the same thing but with buttons instead of radio buttons. It's my understanding that you could actually eliminate a lot of your code with using an XML file. I'm still trying to learn the process but it would allow creation of these buttons on the fly through the program.
