Option Button grouping method

The code described in this article used to group Option Buttons returns an error:

Lens diff.png

this error is caused by the following line:

    Ctl = Form. GetGroupbyName("MyOptions")

However I found this method that works fine:

Function test
Dim oGroup as object
Dim Doc As Object
Dim Forms As Object
Dim Form As Object
Dim Ctl As Object
Dim I as Integer
Doc = ThisComponent
Forms = Doc.Drawpage.Forms
  Form = Forms.GetbyIndex(0)
     oForm.getGroupByName("MyOptions", oGroup)
   for i=0 to UBound(oGroup)
       oCtl = oGroup(i)
       msg = msg + oCtl.Name + " " + (str(oCtl.State)) + chr(10)
   next i
   MsgBox msg 
end Function

Thanks for the feedback. Frank corrected the example and also made a few other corrections to the text. --ccornell 10:48, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
