ToggleButtonBar control in Flex4:

The ButtonBar control and the ToggleButtonBar control both are same. The ToggleButtonBar control is a MX component. It has no Spark component. You can Set buttons in horizontal and vertical layout. This control defines only single event itemClick event. In ToggleButtonBar control all buttons are in a group and maintain their state. Only one button will be in selected state at a time and left buttons will be in deselected state at that time.
The tag of this control is <mx:ToggleButtonBar>.

Example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<s:Application xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"

xmlns:s="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark"

xmlns:mx="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/mx"

minWidth="955" minHeight="600">

<fx:Script>

public function clickHandler(event:Event):void{

if(tobuttbar.selectedIndex==0){

txt.text="C is a middle level language.";

if(tobuttbar.selectedIndex==2){
