Putting Text to the Left of a Checkbox or Radio Button

Normally, the text of a checkbox or radio button is to the right of the control. But, somtimes it makes more sense to have it on the left side instead.

To do this, first create your control as you normally would. Position the checkbox/radio button where you ultimately want it to be.

Next, change the width of the control. For a checkbox, set the width to 12; for a radio button, set the width to 20.

Lastly, create a label control and put it to the left of your checkbox/radio button.
