Examples

The following code example demonstrates initializing a CheckedListBox control by setting the CheckOnClick, SelectionMode, and ThreeDCheckBoxes properties. The example populates the CheckedListBox with controls and sets the DisplayMember to the Control.Name property of the control.

To run the example, paste the following code in a form containing a CheckedListBox named CheckedListBox1 and call the InitializeCheckListBox method from the form's constructor or Load method.

   // This method initializes CheckedListBox1 with a list of all 
   // the controls on the form. It sets the selection mode
   // to single selection and allows selection with a single click.
   // It adds itself to the list before adding itself to the form.
internal:
   System::Windows::Forms::CheckedListBox^ CheckedListBox1;

private:
   void InitializeCheckedListBox()
   {
      this->CheckedListBox1 = gcnew CheckedListBox;
      this->CheckedListBox1->Location = System::Drawing::Point( 40, 90 );
      this->CheckedListBox1->CheckOnClick = true;
      this->CheckedListBox1->Name = "CheckedListBox1";
      this->CheckedListBox1->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 120, 94 );
      this->CheckedListBox1->TabIndex = 1;
      this->CheckedListBox1->SelectionMode = SelectionMode::One;
      this->CheckedListBox1->ThreeDCheckBoxes = true;
      System::Collections::IEnumerator^ myEnum = this->Controls->GetEnumerator();
      while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
      {
         Control^ aControl = safe_cast<Control^>(myEnum->Current);
         this->CheckedListBox1->Items->Add( aControl, false );
      }

      this->CheckedListBox1->DisplayMember = "Name";
      this->CheckedListBox1->Items->Add( CheckedListBox1 );
      this->Controls->Add( this->CheckedListBox1 );
   }
// This method initializes CheckedListBox1 with a list of all 
// the controls on the form. It sets the selection mode
// to single selection and allows selection with a single click.
// It adds itself to the list before adding itself to the form.

internal System.Windows.Forms.CheckedListBox CheckedListBox1;

private void InitializeCheckedListBox()
{
    this.CheckedListBox1 = new CheckedListBox();
    this.CheckedListBox1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(40, 90);
    this.CheckedListBox1.CheckOnClick = true;
    this.CheckedListBox1.Name = "CheckedListBox1";
    this.CheckedListBox1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(120, 94);
    this.CheckedListBox1.TabIndex = 1;
    this.CheckedListBox1.SelectionMode = SelectionMode.One;
    this.CheckedListBox1.ThreeDCheckBoxes = true;

    foreach ( Control aControl in this.Controls )
    {
        this.CheckedListBox1.Items.Add(aControl, false);
    }

    this.CheckedListBox1.DisplayMember = "Name";
    this.CheckedListBox1.Items.Add(CheckedListBox1);
    this.Controls.Add(this.CheckedListBox1);
}
' This method initializes CheckedListBox1 with a list of all the controls
' on the form. It sets the selection mode to single selection and
' allows selection with a single click. It adds itself to the list before 
' adding itself to the form.

Remarks

This method adds an item to the list. For a list, the item is added to the end of the existing list of items. For a sorted checked list box, the item is inserted into the list according to its sorted position. A SystemException occurs if there is insufficient space available to store the new item.

Add(Object, CheckState)

Adds an item to the list of items for a CheckedListBox, specifying the object to add and the initial checked value.

public:
 int Add(System::Object ^ item, System::Windows::Forms::CheckState check);
public int Add (object item, System.Windows.Forms.CheckState check);
override this.Add : obj * System.Windows.Forms.CheckState -> int
Public Function Add (item As Object, check As CheckState) As Integer

Parameters

item
