I want to use a checkbox that informs the user that the NULL value is "Unknown". I know the code to show that "Yes" if the checkbox is true & "No" if false but how would I code the NULL value in my table to show "Unknown"? Is this possible? I am using a Visual Basic form and SQL database. The datatype is set to a BIT.
Private Sub LicenceAgreeCheckBox_CheckedChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles CheckBox.CheckedChanged
        If CheckBox.Checked = True Then
            CheckBox.Text = "Yes"
        Else
            CheckBox.Text = "No"
        End If
    End Sub

Use the CheckState property:
Private Sub LicenceAgreeCheckBox_CheckedChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles CheckBox.CheckedChanged
    Select Case CheckBox.CheckState
        Case CheckState.Checked
            CheckBox.Checked = "True"
        Case CheckState.Indeterminate
            CheckBox.Checked = "Unknown"
        Case CheckState.Unchecked
            CheckBox.Checked = "False"
    End Select
End Sub
