CheckBox.Checked CheckBox.Checked CheckBox.Checked CheckBox.Checked Property

Definition

Gets or set a value indicating whether the CheckBox is in the checked state.

public:
 property bool Checked { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
[System.ComponentModel.Bindable(true)]
[System.ComponentModel.SettingsBindable(true)]
public bool Checked { get; set; }
member this.Checked : bool with get, set
Public Property Checked As Boolean

Property Value

true if the CheckBox is in the checked state; otherwise, false. The default value is false.

If the ThreeState property is set to true, the Checked property will return true for either a Checked or IndeterminateCheckState.

Examples

The following code example displays the values of three properties in a label. The ThreeState property alternates between true and false with alternating clicks of the control and the CheckAlign alternates between a ContentAlignment value of MiddleRight and MiddleLeft. This example shows how the property values change as the ThreeState property changes and the control is checked. This example requires that a CheckBox, Label and Button have all been instantiated on a form and that the label is large enough to display three lines of text, as well as a reference to the System.Drawing namespace. This code should be called in the Click event handler of the control.

   void AdjustMyCheckBoxProperties()
   {
      // Concatenate the property values together on three lines.
      label1->Text = String::Format( "ThreeState: {0}\nChecked: {1}\nCheckState: {2}",
         checkBox1->ThreeState, checkBox1->Checked, checkBox1->CheckState );
      
      // Change the ThreeState and CheckAlign properties on every other click.
      if ( !checkBox1->ThreeState )
      {
         checkBox1->ThreeState = true;
         checkBox1->CheckAlign = ContentAlignment::MiddleRight;
      }

       checkBox1.CheckAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleRight;
    }

    {
       checkBox1.ThreeState = false;
       checkBox1.CheckAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft;
    }

    // Concatenate the property values together on three lines.
    label1.Text = "ThreeState: " + checkBox1.ThreeState.ToString() + "\n" +
                  "Checked: " + checkBox1.Checked.ToString() + "\n" +
                  "CheckState: " + checkBox1.CheckState.ToString(); 
 }
 
Private Sub AdjustMyCheckBoxProperties()

    ' Change the ThreeState and CheckAlign properties on every other click.
    If Not checkBox1.ThreeState Then
        checkBox1.ThreeState = True
        checkBox1.CheckAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleRight
    Else
        checkBox1.ThreeState = False
        checkBox1.CheckAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft
    End If

    ' Concatenate the property values together on three lines.
    label1.Text = "ThreeState: " & checkBox1.ThreeState.ToString() & ControlChars.Cr & _
        "Checked: " & checkBox1.Checked.ToString() & ControlChars.Cr & _
        "CheckState: " & checkBox1.CheckState.ToString()

End Sub

Remarks

When the value is true, the CheckBox portion of the control displays a check mark. If the Appearance property is set to Button, the control will appear sunken when Checked is true and raised like a standard button when false.
