Why is it that when I add an item to a TListView with checkboxes, all items become unchecked?

And how can I remedy this? (I am using D4)

I have found a work-around myself, but it's kind of complicated, I am looking for a simple solution.

Why not just do this:

VAR
  CheckState : TStringList;
  iCount : LONGINT;
BEGIN
  CheckState := TStringList.Create;
  FOR iCount := 0 TO (ListBox1.Items.Count - 1)
  DO
    IF ListBox1.Checked[iCount]
    THEN
      CheckState.Add('1')
    ELSE
      CheckState.Add('0');
 
//Add your new item

  FOR iCount := 0 TO (CheckState.Items.Count - 1)
  DO
    ListBox1.Checked[iCount] :=  (CheckState[iCount] = '1');

  CheckState.Free;
END;

It's not ideal and I don't know why Delphi is being a pain but it'll fix your problem

I don't have that problem. The boxes remain checked. I wonder how you add a new item.

Hi
this is a bug with the component see this report from

http://www.borland.com/devsupport/delphi/fixes/delphi4/vcl.html#win 32 controls\tlistview

Area: vcl\win 32 controls\tlistview
Reference Number: 1065 (Published: 10/27/98)

Status: Fixed in Version 4 Update Pack 2
Date Reported: 8/1/98

Severity: Serious

Type: Basic Functionality Failure

Problem:

The TListView class clears the checked property of
all items when an item is manually added and its
Checked property is set to TRUE


Steps:

1.  Create a new applicatoin.
2.  Drop a TButton and a TListview on the form.
3.  Add a bunch of items to the Listview in the OI
4.  Set the Listview's Checked property to True
5.  Add this code to the OnClick of the button --

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  ListItem: TListItem;
begin
  ListItem := Listview1.Items.Add;
  ListItem.Caption := 'Added item';
  ListItem.Checked := True;
end;


6.  Run the application.   Select the checkboxes of
any or all of the items.  Then press the button.

Notice that the checked properties of all of the
items are cleared.



so the answer is too apply update pack 2 which you an also get from borlands devsupport site.
