Change contents of table with a Optionbutton RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Forum,


    As a student Im trying to change the contents of a table using optionbuttons.

    The idea is that the user selects a option(radio)button and then his selection (only one char) appears in a small table at the bottom of the page.

    Is your hair Purple or Blond?

    option 1: Purple, Option 2: Blond      (with optionbuttons) 

    if option 1
    table cell 1 equals P
    if option 2
    table cell 1 equals  B


    I tried to do this in coding but I wasn't very succesful:

    Private Sub OptionButton1_Click()

    If OptionButton1_Click = True Then

    tablecell1 = "E"

    Else if optionButton2_Click = True Then

    tablecell1 = "T"

    End Sub

    I'm browsing the fora and internet for possible solutions but so far I've been unsuccessful.

    Your help would be greatly appriciated,


    kind regards,
