Uncheck a CheckBox in Delphi

Posted on 2004-04-05
Last Modified: 2008-02-26

I have a form that has six checkbox's on it.If a user has checked some box's and then
clicks on another button that prints a form. When the program
has finished printing  it goes back to that form and automatically unchecks the box's
without the user having to do it.
I also have text box's and combo box's but I don't want to clear them.

I am using Delphi 7.

Your help would be appreciatted !!

Can you provide some code to help narrow the problem down.

I'd first check in your onClick event handler for printing of the form.
Check all code inside of it and all procedures that it calls.
More than likely somewhere in that code TCheckBox.Checked := false; is being called on your check boxes.

The other possibility is that the form that displays the settings is getting deleted and then being recreated again with the default form settings.  In that case you will have to provide a means of saving the forms setting and then restoring them later.

Do you print using a QuickReport? If you do then you can use the AfterPrint event of the QuickReport. And place there the code that unchecks the CheckBoxes
