Expanded Overview

The CheckEdit control is a check box editor. In addition to the standard True/False states, CheckEdit supports the Indeterminate state.

The CheckEdit control offers the following features.

  • Optional indeterminate state

    Setting the CheckEdit.IsThreeState property to true allows the CheckEdit control to hold a null value. This is called the Indeterminate state.

  • Read-only operation mode

    To prevent an end-user from changing a check box value, set the CheckEdit's BaseEdit.IsReadOnly property to true.

  • WPF templates support

    The CheckEdit control fully supports WPF templates. The image below illustrates a CheckEdit modified by a custom template.

  • Optimized for in-place editing

    CheckEdit can be used standalone or as an in-place editor nested in a container control. The CheckEditSettings class implements the in-place editing functionality. See In-place Editors to learn more.

Expanded Standalone CheckEdit

Expanded In-place CheckEdit
