I have a group of 4 Outlook::OlkOptionButton's that I want to make tri-state.

By tri-state I mean I want the user to be able to select either 0 or 1 of the

4 buttons. If he clicks on a button that is already set, it should turn off

the button and then 0 of the buttons would be selected. Is that possible? Do

I need to use a different button type?
 
There are no buttons like that. If you click an option that's already

clicked it remains clicked. You'd have to simulate that with a set of

regular buttons or checkboxes. Of course the shapes are different.

Thanks Ken. I think I figured out another way around that problem. I haven't

implemented it yet, but I think it will work. Instead of making all 4 option

buttons part of the same group I can leave them stand-alone or make them part

4 seperate groups. Then I would have total control over which ones are

selected and which ones aren't programatically.

You would need to set each individual option in a frame or some container

that keeps each separate. In general all options not encapsulated within a

container such as a frame are treated as part of the same linked group.
