CheckBox Object (Word)
Represents a single check box form field.
Use FormFields(Index), where Index is index number or the bookmark name associated with the check box, to return a single FormField object. Use the CheckBox property with the FormField object to return a CheckBox object. The following example selects the check box form field named "Check1" in the active document.
The index number represents the position of the form field in the FormFields collection. The following example checks the type of the first form field; if it is a check box, the check box is selected.
If ActiveDocument.FormFields(1).Type = wdFieldFormCheckBox Then ActiveDocument.FormFields(1).CheckBox.Value = True End If
The following example determines whether the ffield object is valid before changing the check box size to 14 points.
Set ffield = ActiveDocument.FormFields(1).CheckBox If ffield.Valid = True Then ffield.AutoSize = False ffield.Size = 14 Else MsgBox "First field is not a check box" End If
Use the Add method with the FormFields object to add a check box form field. The following example adds a check box at the beginning of the active document, sets the name to "Color", and then selects the check box.
