View Mode

To view this property in the Object Browser panel and in other panels and dialogs, activate the Advanced view mode.


The property has the following parameter:


Specifies the desired item. You can enter the item’s index (from 0) or its caption. The caption can contain asterisk (*) or question mark (?) wildcards or regular expressions. The asterisk (*) corresponds to a string of any length (including an empty string), the question mark corresponds to any single character (including none). To specify more complicated parts of a caption, use regular expressions.

The caption can be case-sensitive or case-insensitive depending on the value of the Use case-sensitive parameters project setting.

Property Value

One of the following constants that specify the item’s state:

Value Description
cbUnchecked, False or 0 The item is unchecked.
cbChecked, True or 1 The item is checked.
cbGrayed or 2 The item is switched to grayed (indeterminate state).


Note that the items of the check list box may be in the indeterminate (grayed) state only if the list box’s AllowGrayed property is True. Otherwise, the items does not support the indeterminate state. In this case, if you pass cbGrayed to the State parameter, CheckItem will fail and post an error message to the test log.
