Use the CheckState property to specify the item's state. Each item displayed by the CheckedListBoxControl can have three (checked, unchecked, indeterminate) states, as shown in the image below.

CheckedListBoxControl - CheckState

The BaseCheckedListBoxControl class provides a set of methods allowing you to either obtain or specify an item's state. For example, use the BaseCheckedListBoxControl.GetItemCheckState method to identify the item's current state. The BaseCheckedListBoxControl.SetItemCheckState method, in turn, enables you to set the specified item into one of the three states.

Note: to set an item to the indeterminate state at runtime, end-users must hold the CTRL key.
