CheckedListBox.CheckOnClick Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the check box should be toggled when an item is selected.

[Visual Basic]
Public Property CheckOnClick As Boolean
[C#]
public bool CheckOnClick {get; set;}
[C++]
public: __property bool get_CheckOnClick();
public: __property void set_CheckOnClick(bool);
[JScript]
public function get CheckOnClick() : Boolean;
public function set CheckOnClick(Boolean);

Property Value

true if the check mark is applied immediately; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Remarks

CheckOnClick indicates whether the check box should be toggled whenever an item is selected. The default behavior is to change the selection on the first click, and then have the user click again to apply the check mark. In some instances, however, you might prefer have the item checked as soon as it is clicked.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following code example demonstrates initializing a CheckedListBox control by setting the CheckOnClick, SelectionMode, and CheckedListBox. System.Windows.Forms.CheckedListBox.3DCheckBoxes properties. The example populates the CheckedListBox with controls and sets the CheckedListBox. System.Windows.Forms.CheckedListBox.Display member to the name property of the control. To run the example, paste the following code in a form containing a CheckedListBox named CheckedListBox1 and call the InitializeCheckListBox method from the form's constructor or Load method.

[Visual Basic] 
' This method initializes CheckedListBox1 with a list of all the controls
' on the form. It sets the selection mode to single selection and
' allows selection with a single click. It adds itself to the list before 
' adding itself to the form.
Friend WithEvents CheckedListBox1 As System.Windows.Forms.CheckedListBox

Private Sub InitializeCheckedListBox()
    Me.CheckedListBox1 = New CheckedListBox
    Me.CheckedListBox1.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(40, 90)
    Me.CheckedListBox1.CheckOnClick = True
    Me.CheckedListBox1.Name = "CheckedListBox1"
    Me.CheckedListBox1.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(120, 94)

    Next

    Me.CheckedListBox1.DisplayMember = "Name"
