    Re: Padding between text and radio button

    Radio button is a standard control. Which API does not provide any means for tweaking the space between the dot and its label. Actually, this is what standard is really about.

    You want to freely change the spacing, you go with unlabeled radio button and separate label control aligned properly next to the button. However, that spacing thing will cost you an extra headache of handling keyboard accelerators to create an illusion of control integrity. Of course, if you do suppose the accelerators to be in use at all.

    Or you just add a number of spaces to the beginning of the button label to create the required offset.

    But as to me, the best would be to go with standard button look and feel. The lesson learned: Boring UI is way better than annoying-and-thus-hated UI.
    Best regards,
