C# CheckState of a Checkbox

Posted on 2016-08-12

I dynamically add a datagridview to my form.  When a user types in a number and hits 'Enter' the datagridview is created and populated.  I also add a checkbox in the column header so the user can toggle between checking and unchecking all of the boxes.  My problem comes when the user clicks on the 'Clear' button.  I would like the 'Clear' button to clear the whole grid and 'Uncheck' the column header checkbox if it is checked.  Here is my problem:

  1. I 'Check' the column Header checkbox
  2. The very first time I click on the 'Clear' button the column header checkbox is unchecked
  3. I 'Check the column Header checkbox a 2nd time
  4. I click on the 'Clear' button a 2nd time and everything BUT the column header checkbox is cleared

When I step through my code it is already showing that the column header checkbox is 'Unchecked' when it is actually checked.  It's like the state of the checkbox never gets changed.

I am not sure what to do.  

Any help is appreciated.

When the user types in a number in the 'Search' box this is called:
private void txtSearch_KeyUp(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
        {
if (e == null || e.KeyCode == Keys.Enter)
            {

                //Clear the datasource and datagridview so everything is starting from scratch
                if (HeaderCheckBox != null)
                {
                    HeaderCheckBox.CheckState = CheckState.Unchecked;
                }
                dgBilling.DataSource = null;
                dgBilling.Rows.Clear();
                dgBilling.Columns.Clear();
                dgBilling.ColumnCount = 0;
                
                BindBillGrid(sSCH, sdb);

            dgBilling.ColumnCount = 8;

What does the code on your header checkbox that checks all the results look like?

I got the code for creating and toggling the checkboxes here:

Instead of calling RowCheckBoxClick() do you mean to be calling HeaderCheckBoxClick() ?  The RowCheckBoxClick() looks like it's meant to run each time a checkbox other than the header is toggled.

Also this seems to be an issue:
                //Change state of the header CheckBox.
                if (TotalCheckedCheckBoxes == 0 && TotalCheckBoxes == 0)
                    HeaderCheckBox.Checked = false;
                else if (TotalCheckedCheckBoxes < TotalCheckBoxes)
                    HeaderCheckBox.Checked = false;
                else if (TotalCheckedCheckBoxes == TotalCheckBoxes)
                    HeaderCheckBox.Checked = true;

Open in new window


Because 2 of these conditions can exist at the same time.  Can it not be?
if (TotalCheckedCheckBoxes < TotalCheckBoxes)
                    HeaderCheckBox.Checked = false;
                else if (TotalCheckedCheckBoxes == TotalCheckBoxes)
                    HeaderCheckBox.Checked = true;

Did you mean calling HeaderCheckBoxClick() in btnClear_Click?

If so I changed

RowCheckBoxClick((DataGridViewCheckBoxCell)dgBilling[0, 0]);
to                
HeaderCheckBoxClick((CheckBox)HeaderCheckBox);

And get the same results.  The 2nd time around the header checkbox stays checked.

You are correct when you say the two conditions can be the same but I if the two totals are 0 then I want HeaderCheckBox.Checked = false;  Otherwise HeaderCheckBox.Checked = true;
0

My ultimate goal is to have a checkbox in the header of the checkbox column.  I want the user to have the ability to toggle between checking/unchecking all of the checkboxes with one click.

I found the code here to accomplish this.
http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/42437/Toggling-the-States-of-all-CheckBoxes-Inside-a-Dat

The code works great until I need to clear the grid and the header checkbox and start over with a new number.   I just need to make some changes but I am having trouble.

I am new to C# and datagridviews and I am having trouble taking your example of applying it to my code.  For one I use a dataset to populate my grid.  Would that matter?

It should not matter because a DataSet contains DataTables (which I convert my list into in order to bind it to the datagridview).  The difference is that when I convert my list to a datatable, I add the selector column.

Unfortunately I can't figure out how to convert your code to work with how I load my datagridview.

Thank you anyway.

I tested Saige's code and it works, despite the asker having issues implementing it.  Anyone else who researches this would find the same, working answer.  I'd recommend giving Saige 500 pts for a good thorough answer.
