Checking or Unchecking Items in Checked List Boxes from Code

You can use a checked list box's SetItemChecked method to check or uncheck items in a checked list box by passing a value of True or False, respectively. Here's an example from the CheckedListBoxes example on the CD-ROM where I'm unchecking item 0 in the checked list box:

Private Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button3.Click
    CheckedListBox1.SetItemChecked(0, False)
End Sub

You can see the results in Figure 7.11; in this case, I've clicked the "Uncheck item" button, which has removed the check mark in the checked list box in front of item 0.

You also can use the SetItemCheckState method to work with three-state checkboxes; you pass this method the index of the item to change and a value from the CheckState enumeration:

  • Checked— The control is checked.

  • Indeterminate— The control is indeterminate. An indeterminate control generally has a shaded appearance.

  • Unchecked— The control is unchecked.

Here's an example: CheckedListBox1.SetItemCheckState(0, CheckState.Unchecked).
