thanks for your reply also.
The TabIndex you're writing about sounds pretty much like what I'm
looking for - but I can't find it.
I use python / pyuno and I can't find a property called TabIndex or
In this folder are two screenshots with all the properties of a RadioButton:
Or is it the case, that TabIndex means the index in the parent container?
Well, I tried to add all mixed elements from a list (RadioButtons were
directly after each other) and it didn't work.
When I add the RadioButtons in a separate loop, they work.
Sometimes it would be handy to have more control, as you might have more
elements inbetween the RadioButtons. So the designing gets more
complicated. Like here in the middle row, where the checkboxes are
working like radiobuttons.
The advantage of a radiobutton is to see immediately what kind of
choices are possible.

I know, it's better to show some code, but it would be a bit too much,
as the creation of widgets is splitted into several steps.
My questions are:
- Is there a mechanism to group radio buttons by code instead of adding
them one directly after the other?
- Can someone guess, what else can go wrong?
There the last paragraph in section 'Option Buttons'
"To combine several option buttons in a group, you must position them
one after another in the activation sequence without any gaps
(Model.TabIndex property, described as Order in the dialog editor). If
the activation sequence is interrupted by another control element,
then OpenOffice.org automatically starts with a new control element
group that can be activated regardless of the first group of control
So this is different from option buttons in forms, where grouping is
done by the name property.
I have tested, that you really get a grouping, when the TabIndex is
consecutive. That happens automatically, when you insert them in that
You can change the property 'Tab index' after you have inserted a
control, but that will change the other tab indexes too. You might
want to have a list of the wanted tab order when designing the dialog
and start changing at tab index 0.
You can set and change the property TabIndex as well inside your
program before executing the dialog. But unless you insert option
buttons newly (instead of setting visible) when running your program,
I think, that generating the dialog controls in the correct order
while designing the dialog is much easier.
