CheckedListBox - several items - One check box -

Posted on 2007-07-21

Is there a way to add several items to a checkedListBox control during runtime, with only 1 checkbox near them? Lets say I have 3 items inside my checked list box, But I don't want a check box for each item, instead I would like to put a check box for ALL 3 items.

is this possible?

    With CheckedListBox it is not possible. To create custom control.... possible, but will require some time to be done. From the first thought, it would be a collection of labels, where some of them will have checkbox control associated with it, and some dont. Implementing scrollbars will take most of the time to make it

    You could code it so that when one of the "related" items is checked/unchecked they all get checked/unchecked together.

    Going with that similar train of thought, you could use a TreeView with CheckBoxes enabled and check/uncheck all children/siblings at the same time.  At least with a TreeView there would be a visual grouping of the items because of the Tree hierarchy.
