The property is applied to the following object:

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

True if the specifies item is checked; otherwise False.


If you use Python or DelphiScript, you should enclose the parameter of the wChecked property in square brackets: wChecked[Item].

The wChecked property has effect only in a list view control that displays check boxes next to items (that is, whose CheckBoxes property is True). To check or uncheck a list view item, use the CheckItem action.

The wChecked property is supported directly on Windows versions above NT4. On the latter system, it requires Internet Explorer 3.0 or higher to be installed.
