ItemCheckEventArgs Class

Provides data for the ItemCheck event of the CheckedListBox and ListView controls.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public class ItemCheckEventArgs : EventArgs
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public class ItemCheckEventArgs extends EventArgs
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public class ItemCheckEventArgs extends EventArgs

The ItemCheck event occurs when the checked state of an item in a checked list box changes. The ItemCheckEventArgs class specifies the index of the item to change, the current value of the check box for the item, and the new value to set for the check box.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates a checked ListView control that handles the ListView.ItemChecked event. The method uses the CurrentValue and Index properties of the ItemCheckEventArgs object to retrieve and tally the price of the menu items selected. To run this example paste the following code in a form containing a ListView named ListView1 and a TextBox named Textbox1. Call the InititalizeListView method from the form's constructor or Load method. Ensure all events are associated with their event-handling methods.

	private void InitializeListView()
	{
		this.ListView1 = new System.Windows.Forms.ListView();

		// Set properties such as BackColor and DockStyle and Location.
		this.ListView1.BackColor = System.Drawing.SystemColors.Control;

		this.ListView1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(292, 130);
		this.ListView1.View = System.Windows.Forms.View.Details;
		this.ListView1.HideSelection = false;

		// Allow the user to select multiple items.
		this.ListView1.MultiSelect = true;

		// Show CheckBoxes in the ListView.
		this.ListView1.CheckBoxes = true;
		
		//Set the column headers and populate the columns.
		ListView1.HeaderStyle = ColumnHeaderStyle.Nonclickable;
		
		ColumnHeader columnHeader1 = new ColumnHeader();
		columnHeader1.Text = "Breakfast Choices";
		columnHeader1.TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment.Left;
		columnHeader1.Width = 146;

		ColumnHeader columnHeader2 = new ColumnHeader();
		columnHeader2.Text = "Price Each";
		columnHeader2.TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment.Center;
		columnHeader2.Width = 142;

       	this.ListView1.Columns.Add(columnHeader1);
		this.ListView1.Columns.Add(columnHeader2);

		// the list is painted only once, rather than as each list item is added.
		ListView1.BeginUpdate();

		for(count = 0; count < foodList.Length; count++)
		{
			ListViewItem listItem = new ListViewItem(foodList[count]);
			listItem.SubItems.Add(foodPrice[count]);
			ListView1.Items.Add(listItem);
