    Setting a Check Box Cell
    In This Topic

    A check box cell displays, by default, a small check box that can have one of two states, checked or unchecked. You can customize the check box by specifying the images for the two states. You can also specify whether the value is Boolean (true or false) or an integer (0 or 1). Default appearances are shown here.

    Appearances of Check Box Cell Types

    To create a cell that acts like a check box, follow this procedure.

    For details on the properties and methods for this cell type, refer to the CheckBoxCellType class in the Assembly Reference.

    Using Code

    1. Define the check box cell type by creating an instance of the CheckBoxCellType class.
    2. Specify the properties of the check box cell.
    3. Enter the text that goes along with each check box.
    4. Specify the location of the images for the checked and unchecked boxes if you do not want to use the defaults.
    5. Assign the check box cell type to a cell (or cells).

    Example

    This example creates a check box cell with custom images and text.

    C#
    Copy Code
    FarPoint.Web.Spread.CheckBoxCellType chkbx = new FarPoint.Web.Spread.CheckBoxCellType();
    chkbx.Text = "Spotted";
    chkbx.CheckedImageUrl = "img/checked.gif";
    chkbx.UncheckedImageUrl = "img/unchecked.gif";
    FpSpread1.ActiveSheetView.Cells[0, 0].CellType = chkbx; 
    
    VB
    Copy Code
    Dim chkbx As New FarPoint.Web.Spread.CheckBoxCellType()
    chkbx.Text = "Spotted"
    chkbx.CheckedImageUrl = "img/checked.gif"
    chkbx.UncheckedImageUrl = "img/unchecked.gif"
    FpSpread1.ActiveSheetView.Cells(0, 0).CellType = chkbx
