I'm a Window Builder Newbie and I cannot figure out how to create a group of radio buttons.

I'm using the Swing Data Binding Example found in Google Code. ( I'd post a link but the system won't let me.)

I'd like to add a simple Yes/No Radio button to the Person form.

The form is laid out using a GridBag layout.

I am not using the Pro Version of WindowBuilder.

I've searched on-line for an answer, But I haven't found anything. Maybe its so simple no one has blogged about it.

Thanks for any help.

Wow. Thanks! So Helpful!

If you read my post you would see that I was asking how to create a Radio Button Group using WindowBuilder.

Should have known that some senior member lurker would have flamed my first post WITHOUT EVEN READING IT.

I'm not sure what you are trying to do or what you expect to see. You are piggybacking on a very old thread here.

Hi Eric
Yeah I saw. I use nebula for the radio button group in mean time, works great so far.
Actually i tried to use a checkbox instead of radio button, only one of the checkboxes in a group can be used. checkbox should behave as radio button. it is a customer req, that he wants checkbox instead of radio button.
So far I did not manage to create a checkbox group in SWT and i really do not want to use AWT in SWT.
Found no snippets regarding this and hints only in Swing and AWT.

In SWT, radiobuttons automatically form a 1-of-m group within the same parent. Checkboxes are independent as expected. It sounds like you want chekcboxes that act like radiobuttons. You aren't going to get that by default in SWT (since that is not the expected platform behavior). You can do it easily enough by adding your own logic / event handlers.
