Property Value


true if the ToolStripMenuItem is checked or is in an indeterminate state; otherwise, false. The default is false.



The Checked property returns false if and only if the ToolStripMenuItem is unchecked.

Starting with the .NET Framework 4.5.2, when an item is checked or indeterminate, the corresponding icon may be resized. Resizing is determined by the system DPI setting when the app.config file contains the following entry:

  <add key="EnableWindowsFormsHighDpiAutoResizing" value="true" />
