I've played around with TheGUILoft and was impressed with what it does for the most part.  My biggest problem is that it doesn't export win32-gui code.  I'd like the option of beging able to do both.

Well Brian, TIMTOW :p
Not that every way is clean, neat and easily objectified (thought I haven't looked into groupbox'ing myself ouside of Johan's GUI-Loft, which I suggest you have a look at [ http://www.bahnhof.se/~johanl/perl/Loft/]) so I can't be perfectly sure that such a way is currently in widespread use.

Thanks again.
I was able to come up with something by simply creating the group box with no text with the example I provided then positioning the radio button on top.  This gives me what I need but it's probably not the best way to accomplish it.

What I'm looking to create is a page similar to the tcp/ip properties dialog which has 2 radio buttons.  The second button has a group box around it wich when checked enables other controls.
I was able to create the visual element by:
my $btnStatic = $main_window->AddButton(
        -name => "btnStatic",
        -pos => [30,130],
        -text => "Use the following IP Address:",
        -pushstyle => WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | 7,  # GroupBox
This gives me the visual element but using -pushstyle with AddRadioButton causes the radio button to disappear altogether.

Hi Jason,
Thanks for the advice.  I was able to get things working with this method.  Another unrelated question .... is there a package to create a 3D type border around a control to visually group off some controls.
