Prevent checkbox click event occur while editing it in vb6

When we fill our checkbox of our vb6 form when loading, the events are trigger and all the instructions of the event begins.

The code is for when a user checks on it, it saves to a table:

Private Sub Form_Load()
 check1.value=sql value saved previously
End Sub

Open in new window


Private Sub check1_Click()
 sql instruction save the state of the variable...
End Sub

Open in new window


However, before the screen is display, we read the table and set the checkbox according of what has been saved previously.  This trigger the "click" events and freezes the apps.

How can we set the checkbox without triggering the events?

Create a Boolean variable, set it to True when editing and False when done, and in the editing routing query the value of the Boolean and exit if True.

That should be routine and not routing.

Sure. Click a check box, click the "Start Edit Mode" button and then click the same or the other checkbox. Click the "End Edit Mode" button and click a checkxox.

We modified your code to present our problem.

We added 2 checkbox Check2 & check3

When the apps load, it sets the values in Check2 & check3 which causes the events of each click to be triggered.

What we want that when setting in form load, the events be disabled.

Set the stops at the check licks and you will see what we mean.

Add mbEditing = True right before Check2.Value = 1 in Form_Load.
