Identifier field


Metadata properties set to true


A control that inherits from ToggleButton determines its behavior when this property is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


When the IsThreeState property is set to true, a user can click a CheckBox to pick three possible states. The following table describes the three states of a CheckBox.

State of the CheckBox

Value of IsChecked






a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic)

If IsThreeState is false, you can still programmatically set this property to a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) to put the CheckBox in an indeterminate state, but the user cannot set the CheckBox to the indeterminate state through the user interface (UI).


If you set this property to a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) on a RadioButton, the RadioButton is unchecked.

The following example creates a CheckBox set to an indeterminate state.

<CheckBox Name="checkBox1" IsThreeState="True" 
  A CheckBox in the indeterminate state
