Default check state of radiobuttons from start-button

Hi everybody,

I'm building a GUI for model control with three radiobuttons to select the run-mode. Now i want to write an if-statement in the onpress code of the start button where it is checked if one of the radiobuttons is selected. Is there a way to get the check-state of the radiobuttons in that if statement? I tried with getchecked() but either this doesn't work or I just couldn't find out the right syntax.

Thanks a lot for help!

Hello Eike,

I have used a similar feature and I will try to explain what I have done. I created a numeric label "RunMode" on a control object that was part of my model. This label can have the value 1, 2 or 3 depending on what radio button was selected.
On each radio button i used the hotlinkx attribute.
In the hotlinkx attribute i added code such as:

int MyValue = 1; // for the first radiobutton
if( eventdata == 0 ) // this is when the gui opens
if( getalbelnum( ControlObject, "RunMode" ) == MyValue )
setchecked( c, 1 );
else // this is when the apply or ok button is pressed
setlabelnum( ControlObject, "RunMode", MyValue );

Furthermore I added an OnPress attribute to each radio button with the code:
applylinks( c ), this will cause the 'else' part to be executed from the hotlinkx code.

Hope this helps you solve your problem.

Make sure you stop model with the stop button before collecting state based statistics Paul Dowling Tips and Tricks 2 06-10-2008 08:10 AM
