The second procedure selects the ToggleButton you have clicked and clears all others (so they are not selected).
  1. Close and save any open workbooks, and then open a new workbook.
  2. Start the Visual Basic Editor (press ALT+F11). On the Insert menu, click Module.
  3. In the module, type the following code:
    
    'Variable to hold name of ToggleButton that was clicked.
    Public Clicked As String
    
    Sub ExclusiveToggleButtons()
    
       Dim Toggle As Control
    
       'Loop through all of the ToggleButtons on Frame1
       For Each Toggle In UserForm1.Frame1.Controls
    
          'If Name of ToggleButton matches name of ToggleButton
          'that was clicked...
          If Toggle.Name = clicked Then
             '...select the button
              Toggle.Value = True
           Else
             '...deselect the button
             Toggle.Value = False
           End If
        Next
    End Sub
    					
  4. On the Insert menu, click UserForm.
  5. Draw a Frame control on the UserForm.
  6. Draw three ToggleButton controls on the Frame control.
  7. Double-click one of the ToggleButton controls to display the Code window for the UserForm.
  8. In the module, type the following code:
    Private Sub ToggleButton1_MouseUp(ByVal Button As Integer, _
           ByVal Shift As Integer, ByVal X As Single, ByVal Y As Single)
        Clicked = ToggleButton1.Name
        Application.OnTime Now, "ExclusiveToggleButtons"
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub ToggleButton2_MouseUp(ByVal Button As Integer, _
           ByVal Shift As Integer, ByVal X As Single, ByVal Y As Single)
        Clicked = ToggleButton2.Name
        Application.OnTime Now, "ExclusiveToggleButtons"
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub ToggleButton3_MouseUp(ByVal Button As Integer, _
            ByVal Shift As Integer, ByVal X As Single, ByVal Y As Single)
        Clicked = ToggleButton3.Name
        Application.OnTime Now, "ExclusiveToggleButtons"
    End Sub
    					
  9. Run the UserForm.
When you click one of the ToggleButton controls, the ExclusiveToggleButtons procedure sets the value of the other buttons to false. Only one of the ToggleButtons can be selected at a time.
