Hi Experts,
I would like to link a TCheckbox's checked property to the value of a field in a TClientDataSet.
When the value in the field changes to a specific value, the Checkbox would appear checked.
Can anyone tell me if this is possible?

Using the livebindings designer, I have linked the checkbox's checkedState to the dataset's field. This has created a BindsourceDB object and a BindingsList object. I'm not sure where to go next, however. Is there somewhere I can add a condition to this link?

Many thanks,
Adam

if you link to specific field to Checked property of checkbox that should be enough. I assume that you have boolean type of field. If not, here is blog topic about conversion to boolean value.
