Thread Can I change the diameter of the TRadioButton component?

New to EWB2 so just trying things out.  The diameter of the TRadioButton component is twice the size I would like it to be.  How can I change the diameter?

Thanks,

Open the interface for it (there appear to be three) and click to get
the shape parts you want. The Corners then have a radius, and the
Height and Width can be adjusted according to taste.

Remember I am new to this so how do I access the "interface" ?

Thanks for helping,

TD,

Tim just helped me with this. Here's part of what he posted to me.

"Follow the instructions here on customizing control interfaces:

http://www.elevatesoft.com/manual?action=viewtopic&id=ewb2&topic=Control_Interfaces

(at the bottom)

IOW, make a copy of the standard control interfaces that you want to modify and put them in your project directory, or somewhere in your project's compiler search paths (such as \MyProject\interfaces)."

Once you do the saving, etc. click on "File"..."Open Interface" is the 4th menu selection down.

Ok guys, I have followed your instructions and the TRadioButtons are stil their original size.  Here is what I did:

1. Created the folder "interfaces" under my project's folder - C:\Users\User\My Documents\Elevate Web Builder 2\Projects\Project1\interfaces.

2. Copied the three TRadioButton interface files from the interfaces folder under where EWB2 was installed to interfaces folder in (1) above.

3. Opened each of the three interface files by going to Files, Open Interface... and changed the height wnd width from 24 to 20.  

4. Next frim within EWB2 I went to Enviroment, Options, Component Library, click on the button at the end of the "Search Path" field and then added the path to the interfaces folder in (1) above.

Obviously I'm doing something wrong. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Also, will the size of the TRadioButton component change in the IDE meaning when I place a TRadioButton on a form will it be the new size or is the new size just at runtime?

Thanks,

You need to rebuild the library (menu) and then click on the radio button
on your form and use the restore default interface button at the top of the
form designer.

I just performed the actions you suggested and the TRadioButtons on my form are their original size well as a new one when I place it on the form just to see if their is a difference.

Is their something else I haven't done?

Can you confirm the radiobutton is picked up from correct unit.

When you hover over the controls in EWB IDE the hint shows name and
unit. What does TRadioButton show for unit ?

It shows C:\Program Files (x86)\Elevate Web Builder 2\Library\WebBtns.wbs.  Where is it suppose to point to?

Thanks for helping Raul!
