|Subject:||When / Where to initialize Controls on a Form|

I want to populate a two controls on a form at startup and i'm unsure
as to when / where to do this.
I want to:
- populate a combobox with the options 1 to 5 (1,2,3,4,5)
- set the first radio button to true, second to false.
I think the problem is me coming from a VBA background, I was looking
for the equivalent of a Form Initilaize / Load event, but of course it
i tried to put it in the code in the designer.vb code, which worked
great, but of course when I altered the design of the form, in Design
view, this was all wiped.
The code I want to insert is:
Dim SourceItems(0 To 4) As String
SourceItems = Split("1 2 3 4 5"," ")
Me.ComboBox_IndentationLevel.SelectedItem = 3
' I'm assuming these next two lines won't
' trigger the "RadioButton1_CheckedChanged" event
Me.RadioButton1_Tab.Checked = True
Me.RadioButton2_Space.Checked = False
Advice on where exactly this should go would be much appreciated [and
if there's a better way of doing this].
