Let's pretend that the checkboxes are called chk1 - chk200

For I:=1 to 200 do
  If TCheckBox(FindComponent('chk'+IntToStr(I))).Checked then .......


That's how you do it!

Or if all the components on the form are checkboxes:

     For i := 0 to ComponentCount - 1 Do
     If (Components[i] is TCheckBox) then
     If (Components[i] as TCheckBox).Checked then...

For so many check boxes one might consider using a different control to help sort them - that's a lot of potential confusion for a user!  Perhaps a treeView with check boxes?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Jaymol thanks for your help but how can i define which checkboxes are checked? ex : i want to give a message for every checked boxes?

What are you actually asking then?

Sorry, but it seems your not asking how to tell if they're checked, but asking how to handle an amount of them being checked.

One thing to do is give them all a unique number in their Tag property, then you could hold a list of all those checkboxes by tag number whose Checked property is True.

Can you explain with an example jsweby?

Systemop, what are you attempting to achieve?

jswebyCommented:
procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
   CheckBoxArray: Array[1..200] Of Integer;
   CheckBoxCheckedCount, i: Integer;
begin
    CheckBoxCheckedCount := 0;

    For i := 0 to ComponentCount - 1 Do
    If (Components[i] is TCheckBox) then
    If (Components[i] as TCheckBox).Checked then
    Begin
         inc(CheckBoxCheckedCount);
         CheckBoxArray[CheckBoxCheckedCount] := Components[i] as TCheckBox).Tag;
    End;
end;

Essentially what this will give you is:

(a) the number of checkboxes ticked in the CheckBoxCheckedCount variable
(b) the tag numbers of those check boxes which are ticked in the CheckBoxArray variable.

This is by no means exhaustive or even robust, just an idea...

Summary :

I have 200 checkboxes and one button. Every chckbox has different captions. I check 120 of them. (But they re in different order.) OnButton1.Click i want to write all of the checked CheckBoxes.Caption. Ok Now?

jswebyCommented:
Ok, instead then:

procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
   For i := 0 to ComponentCount - 1 Do
   If (Components[i] is TCheckBox) then
   If (Components[i] as TCheckBox).Checked then
   Begin
        ShowMessage((Components[i] as TCheckBox).Caption);
   End;
end;

This will put out a message for each one that is ticked, you may want to output these to a file.

It depends on where you want to write it, but this will create a string with the caption of each checked checkbox.

var
  TmpI  : Integer;
  TmpS  : String;
Begin
  TmpS:='';
  For TmpI:=1 to 200 do
    If TCheckBox(FindComponent('chk'+TmpI)).Checked then begin
      If TmpS<>'' then TmpS:=TmpS+#13;
      TmpS:=TmpS+TCheckBox(FindComponent('chk'+TmpI)).Caption;
    end;
  ShowMessage(TmpS);
End;
