How to disable buttonGroup

I am looking for a way to disable a buttonGroup, but can
not seem to find a disable option. Basically what I am looking for
is to have the entire group disabled (grayed out) When the user
has enters information into a text field then I want the buttonGroup
Any ideas on how to disable the entire group?

Welcome to JavaRanch, Kevin!
I'm moving this to the Swing / JFC / AWT forum where they just love to pour over this GUI stuff...

You can get an Enumeration of all the buttons by calling getElements() on the ButtonGroup. Just loop through this Enumeration and call setDisabled( false ) on all of them.

Write once, run anywhere, because there's nowhere to hide! - /. A.C.
I agree. Here's the link:
