I am trying to add a radio button to a group in actionscript
but the group never recognizes the addition. Here's a sample:
var _radioGroup:RadioButtonGroup = new RadioButtonGroup();
var r:RadioButton = new RadioButton;
r.groupName = "_radioGroup";
When I step past the last line and look at the radio button
group object then it doesn't show the button added to the group.
I have also tried the line:
r.group = _radioGroup;
but that has the same effect. Interesting that the radio
buttons that get added to the group act like they are part of the
right group but the group doesn't see them. I have created multiple
sets of buttons and they all seem to act correctly based on the
group they were created in. In other words, buttons in the same
group behave normally and there is no weird interaction between
So here are my questions:
Is this the correct way to create buttons and add them to the
How does the group find out about buttons that add themselves
to the group?
Has anyone else tried this?
