You can just put data into a button. So, let's say you lists of  
options were stored as custom properties of your radio buttons, you  
could group your radio buttons and put this handler in the group:

on mouseUp
   put the optionList of the target into btn "myComboBox"
   set the label of btn "myComboBox" to empty --makes sure the text  
entry area of the combo box is empty
end mouseUp

Not tested, but this or something similar should work.
