CheckState Enumeration

Specifies the state of a control, such as a check box, that can be checked, unchecked, or set to an indeterminate state.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public enum CheckState
Member nameDescription
CheckedThe control is checked.
IndeterminateThe control is indeterminate. An indeterminate control generally has a shaded appearance.
UncheckedThe control is unchecked.

Multiple methods in CheckBox, CheckedListBox, and ItemCheckEventArgs use this enumeration.

NoteNote

Use an indeterminately checked control when you do not want to set a default value.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the CheckState enumeration.

namespace WindowsApplication1
{
   using System;
   using System.Drawing;
   using System.Collections;
   using System.ComponentModel;
   using System.Windows.Forms;

      private System.Windows.Forms.Button button2;
      private System.Windows.Forms.ListBox listBox1;
      private System.Windows.Forms.Button button3;
        private System.ComponentModel.Container components;

      public Form1()

         checkedListBox1.Items.AddRange(myFruit);
