Examples

The following example enumerates the items in the CheckedListBox and checks every other item in the list. The example demonstrates using the SetItemCheckState and SetItemChecked methods to set the check state of an item. For every other item that is to be checked, SetItemCheckState is called to set the CheckState to Indeterminate, while SetItemChecked is called on the other item to set the checked state to Checked.

The example also demonstrates using the Items property to get the CheckedListBox.ObjectCollection to get the Count of items.

void CheckEveryOther_Click( Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
{
   
   // Cycle through every item and check every other.
   // Set flag to true to know when this code is being executed. Used in the ItemCheck
   // event handler.
   insideCheckEveryOther = true;
   for ( int i = 0; i < checkedListBox1->Items->Count; i++ )
   {
      
      // For every other item in the list, set as checked.
      if ( (i % 2) == 0 )
      {
         
         // But for each other item that is to be checked, set as being in an
         // indeterminate checked state.
         if ( (i % 4) == 0 )
                     checkedListBox1->SetItemCheckState( i, CheckState::Indeterminate );
         else
                     checkedListBox1->SetItemChecked( i, true );
      }

   }
   insideCheckEveryOther = false;
}


private void CheckEveryOther_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e) {
    // Cycle through every item and check every other.

    // Set flag to true to know when this code is being executed. Used in the ItemCheck
    // event handler.
    insideCheckEveryOther = true;

    for (int i = 0; i < checkedListBox1.Items.Count; i++) {
        // For every other item in the list, set as checked.
        if ((i % 2) == 0) {
            // But for each other item that is to be checked, set as being in an
            // indeterminate checked state.
            if ((i % 4) == 0)
                checkedListBox1.SetItemCheckState(i, CheckState.Indeterminate);
            else
                checkedListBox1.SetItemChecked(i, true);
        }
    }        

    insideCheckEveryOther = false;
}
Private Sub CheckEveryOther_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles CheckEveryOther.Click
    ' Cycle through every item and check every other.
    Dim i As Integer

    ' Set flag to true to know when this code is being executed. Used in the ItemCheck
    ' event handler.
    insideCheckEveryOther = True

    For i = 0 To CheckedListBox1.Items.Count - 1
        ' For every other item in the list, set as checked.

        If ((i Mod 2) = 0) Then
            ' But for each other item that is to be checked, set as being in an
            ' indeterminate checked state.

            If ((i Mod 4) = 0) Then
                CheckedListBox1.SetItemCheckState(i, CheckState.Indeterminate)
            Else
                CheckedListBox1.SetItemChecked(i, True)
            End If
        End If
    Next

    insideCheckEveryOther = False

End Sub

Remarks

The SetItemCheckState method raises the ItemCheck event.

Items whose CheckState is set to Indeterminate appear with a check mark in the check box, but the box is grayed to indicate the indeterminate status of the checked item.
