    Question Load Value From Config File and Automatically Tick the Checkbox

    Hi,

    I have a dialog form that contains 4 tabs, of which on the 4th tab, i have implemented a check box. When that checkbox is checked, a value of "1" should be stored in the configuration file which i am using for the system.

    When I am loading my application, it should accordingly load the corresponding settings from the configurations file and it should automatically check that checkbox.

    The problem here is,
    I am able to store the settings in my configuration file and I am also able to read that particular value while loading the application.

    But I am not able to automatically tick the checkbox according to the value("1").

    How can I achieve this?

    Regards,
    p_zshk

    Create a control member variable for that checkbox (say, c_myCheck), then use
    Code:
    c_myCheck(TRUE):  //  to check the box
    c_myCheck(FALSE):  //  to uncheck the box
    or if you have an integer var iCheck (0 or 1)
    Code:
    c_myCheck(iCheck):

    there is no issue with SetCheck....i have used it before too..and it works fine..

    but the application on which i am operating already have some checkboxes implemented and they have been implemented in a different way...thats why i want to know whether there is an alternative available for this...

    What do you mean under "different way"?
    What type of application are you "operating" with?

    How is it "checked and unchecked without the use of SetCheck"?
