I have tried
IsDlgButtonChecked(odialog.Handle,chx1);
CheckDlgButton functions but not able to do it.
I am getting Handle always 0.

The option flags get updated when the TOpenDialog execute is finished, so just check for ofReadOnly.

Eg:

  if OpenDialog.Execute then
  begin
     if (ofReadOnly in OpenDialog.Options) then
     begin
        ShowMessage('Open as read-only is checked');
     end;
  end;

Russell
