BarCheckItem Class

Represents a check button in bars.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Bars

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Core.v23.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.Core


public class BarCheckItem :


By default, this button has two states: checked (pressed) and unchecked (not pressed).


Clicking a check button automatically toggles its state and fires the BarCheckItem.CheckedChanged event. In code, you can change the button’s check state via the BarCheckItem.IsChecked property.

If the BarCheckItem.IsThreeState option is enabled, a check button supports three states. Use the BarCheckItem.IsChecked property to get/set the check state.

Bar check items can be combined into a group via the BarCheckItem.GroupIndex property. Checking one item within a group automatically unchecks the other items.


This example shows how to create bar items and associate them with a custom Format category.
