Examples

The following code example creates and initializes a CheckBox, gives it the appearance of a toggle button, sets AutoCheck to false, and adds it to a Form.

public:
   void InstantiateMyCheckBox()
   {
      // Create and initialize a CheckBox.   
      CheckBox^ checkBox1 = gcnew CheckBox;
      
      // Make the check box control appear as a toggle button.
      checkBox1->Appearance = Appearance::Button;
      
      // Turn off the update of the display on the click of the control.
      checkBox1->AutoCheck = false;
      
      // Add the check box control to the form.
      this->Controls->Add( checkBox1 );
   }
public void InstantiateMyCheckBox()
 {
    // Create and initialize a CheckBox.   
    CheckBox checkBox1 = new CheckBox(); 
    
    // Make the check box control appear as a toggle button.
    checkBox1.Appearance = Appearance.Button;
 
    // Turn off the update of the display on the click of the control.
    checkBox1.AutoCheck = false;
 
    // Add the check box control to the form.
    Controls.Add(checkBox1);
 }
Public Sub InstantiateMyCheckBox()
    ' Create and initialize a CheckBox.   
    Dim checkBox1 As New CheckBox()
    
    ' Make the check box control appear as a toggle button.
    checkBox1.Appearance = Appearance.Button
    
    ' Turn off the update of the display on the click of the control.
    checkBox1.AutoCheck = False
    
    ' Add the check box control to the form.
    Controls.Add(checkBox1)
End Sub

Remarks

If Appearance value is set to Normal, the CheckBox has a typical appearance. If the value is set to Button, the CheckBox appears like a toggle button, which can be toggled to an up or down state.
