Prevent automatically fire event in vb6

Hello!
   I have a VB6 program with a CheckBox on a form. I have some code for the click event of the CheckBox.
   When i try to programatically change the value of the CheckBox (checked/unchecked), it automatically fires the click event of the CheckBox, executing the specified code.
   Is there a way to prevent the automatically fired event, or at least to detect when the event was automatically/manually fired?

     Thank you!

Hi, Cristi_E.

You can't prevent the event from firing, but you can detect a manual change.  Something like this


'Declare a variable at the top of the module'
Public bolManual As Boolean
 
'In your code before setting the value of the checkbox'
bolManual = True
 
'In the event code'
If bolManual Then
    'Clear the switch'
    bolManual = False
Else
    'Code for whatever is done when the click was not a manual change'
End If
