Can't get Checkbox to check

Hi I am having trying to get my checkbox to check...

I can get a reference to the checkbox object, change the display text etc with the object, but when I set the checked state to true it always remains unchecked???

Below is my code:

public override void CatchItemEvent(string FormUid, ref SAPbouiCOM.ItemEvent ItmEvent, out bool BubbleEvent)


BubbleEvent = true;

if(FormUid == "frmBulkPriceUpdate" && !ItmEvent.BeforeAction && ItmEvent.EventType == BoEventTypes.et_CLICK)


SAPbouiCOM.CheckBox cbQuotes = (SAPbouiCOM.CheckBox)_SboForm.Items.Item("cbQuotes").Specific;

SAPbouiCOM.CheckBox cbOrders = (SAPbouiCOM.CheckBox)_SboForm.Items.Item("cbOrders").Specific;

SAPbouiCOM.EditText txtDate = (SAPbouiCOM.EditText)_SboForm.Items.Item("txtDate").Specific;



case "cbOrders" :

cbOrders.Checked = true;

SboApplication.SetStatusBarMessage(cbOrders.Checked.ToString(), BoMessageTime.bmtShort, false);


case "cbQuotes" :

cbQuotes.Checked = true;


case "butLaunch" :

int confirm = _SboApplication.MessageBox(

"Are you sure you want to run the Automatic Update?",





if(confirm == 1)

UpdatePrices(true, true, txtDate.String);

    Hi Daniel,

    I also had problems with checkbox and radiobuttons.

    I use the click event, with doubleclick and now it works perfectly (why the regualr click doesn't work I don't know)

    Daniel, have you bounded your CheckBox to DataSource?

    If so, could you please show these code-lines

      what I found was if I created a Check Box with code, it behaves well (without me having to manually set the Checked value)

      if I create the chekc box with the aid of Screen Painer then the box does not behave well.. checks but does not uncheck etc...

      hope this helps here.
