hi k6__,

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var i : integer;
begin
i := 0;
while i < checklistbox1.Items.Count -1 do
begin
If Checklistbox1.Checked[i] then
begin
Checklistbox1.Items.Delete(i);
dec(i);
end;
inc(i);
end;
end;

of this:

var i: integer;
begin
for i := CheckBox1.Items.Count - 1 downto 0 do
if CheckBox1.Checked[i] then
CheckBox1.Items.Delete(i);
end;

oh you asked to remove them if they are checked??

ok, then philip's solution would be the best...

for i := CheckBox.Items.Count - 1 downto 0 do
if checkbox.checked[i] then
checkbox.items.delete(i);

that would be the solution...

OK, i tested it and here is what I got...

I've got a TCheckListBox and two buttons... under one of the button's OnClick() I've got this code to add the number from 1 to 10 in the listbox...

var
i : integer;
begin
for i := 1 to 10 do
end;

then I might check a few of them or all of them and then I use this code in the second button's OnClick() so it deletes all the checked items...

var
i : integer;
begin
for i := LB.Items.Count - 1 downto 0 do
if LB.Checked[i] then
LB.Items.Delete(i);
end;

Everything works as it should...

If you didn't copy and paste the code you might have missed the COunt - 1 or you might have done it for i := 0 to List.Items.Count - 1 which will occur also in Out Of Bounds because if you have 10 items and delete 1 then there would not ba an item 10 when the FOR loop gets to there...

Try copying and pasting the code and everything should work fine....

we use DOWNTO and not TO in the for loop so it doesn't give OUt oF Bounds...

hi k6__,

sorry a little mistake of my comment in the line

while i < checklistbox1.Items.Count  - 1 do

should be

while i < checklistbox1.Items.Count  do

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var i : integer;
begin
i := 0;
while i < checklistbox1.Items.Count  do
begin
If Checklistbox1.Checked[i] then
begin
Checklistbox1.Items.Delete(i);
dec(i);
end;
inc(i);
end;
end;

Then its works perfectly
