CheckEdit Class

A check box editor.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Editors

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

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.Core


public class CheckEdit :


The CheckEdit class is a check editor that allows end users to edit Boolean values.



The CheckEdit class inherits its features from the BaseEdit class.

For information on derived features and API, refer to the following class description: BaseEdit.

Create a CheckEdit

<Window ...

<!-- Specify a value using the CheckEdit.IsChecked property -->
<dxe:CheckEdit IsChecked="True" />

<!-- Specify a value using the BaseEdit.EditValue property -->
<dxe:CheckEdit EditValue="False" />

Editor Value

Use the CheckEdit.IsChecked property to specify the editor’s state. To set the editor to the indeterminate state (if supported), set the CheckEdit.IsChecked property to null.

After the CheckEdit.IsChecked property’s value has been changed, the check editor fires the corresponding event (CheckEdit.Checked, CheckEdit.Unchecked or CheckEdit.Indeterminate).

Optional Indeterminate State

Set the CheckEdit.IsThreeState property to true to use the null value of the CheckEdit control. This value adds the Indeterminate state to the editor.

<dxe:CheckEdit Content="Checked" IsThreeState="True" IsChecked="True"/>
<dxe:CheckEdit Content="Indeterminate" IsThreeState="True" IsChecked="{x:Null}"/>
<dxe:CheckEdit Content="Unchecked" IsThreeState="True" IsChecked="False"/>

CheckEdit Three States

Use the CheckEdit.ReverseCheckOrder property to set the order of CheckEdit states.

 <dxe:CheckEdit IsThreeState="True" ReverseCheckOrder="True"/>

The image below illustrates the order of CheckEdit states when ReverseCheckOrder is set to true.

Appearance Customization

Custom Glyphs

To make the CheckEdit display custom glyphs instead of the standard glyphs, pass the ImageCheckEditStyleSettings object to the CheckEdit‘s StyleSettings property.

Use the CheckedGlyph, IndeterminateGlyph, and UncheckedGlyph properties to specify glyphs for all CheckEdit states.

      <dxe:ImageCheckEditStyleSettings />

The CheckEdit control scales the specified glyphs to 16px. To customize the rendered image size, pass a custom data template to the GlyphTemplate property, as in the code sample below.

            <Image Source="{Binding}" Height="32" Width="72"/>
        <dxe:ImageCheckEditStyleSettings />

Custom Content

To specify the editor’s content, use the CheckEdit.Content property.

Use the ContentTemplate and ContentTemplateSelector properties to customize the editor’s content appearance.

CheckBox Width/Height

Use the CheckBoxWidth and CheckBoxHeight properties to specify the glyph’s width and height.

CheckEdit Colors

Use the following properties to specify CheckEdit element colors:

Element Property
Glyph CheckEditGlyphBrush
Background when the editor is checked CheckedStateBackground
BorderBrush when the editor is checked CheckedStateBorderBrush
BorderBrush when the editor is focused FocusedBorderBrush
