  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 StringSub 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    NextEnd 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 SubPrivate 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 SubPrivate 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
