Default User Control inherited from Radio Button


I want to create a user control say MyRadioButton. I drag and drop a radio button on the user control and now try to make this MyRadioButton. The purpose of this MyRadioButton is that, I should retain the functionality of radio button + add my own functionalities.

Once I create multiple MyRadioButton on new form and try to work with it, the radio button mutually exclusive checking property is not working. My understanding is that because radio buttons work only within a group and each MyRadioButton is a separate group now. So any work around?

Hi there,

Your post and the subjects seems to be contradicting a little bit. Your topic suggest you inherit from RadioButton, which seems to imply you're building a custom server control. But, the post itself is about User Controls. Which of the two is it?

Your solution may be to create a GroupName property on your control. You could make this a view state property so it survives post backs. In the Load event of the control, you can use the public GroupName property to set the GroupName of the RadioButton inside your control.

Hope this helps,
