Check Box

The Check Box control is a simple check box that can generate different command syntax for the checked versus the unchecked state. The Check Box control has the following properties:

Identifier. The unique identifier for the control. This is the identifier to use when referencing the control in the syntax template.

Title. An optional title that appears with the control. For multi-line titles or long titles, click the ellipsis (...) button and enter your title in the Title Property dialog.

ToolTip. Optional ToolTip text that appears when the user hovers over the control.

Mnemonic Key. An optional character in the title to use as a keyboard shortcut to the control. The character appears underlined in the title. The shortcut is activated by pressing Alt+[mnemonic key]. The Mnemonic Key property is not supported on Mac.

Default Value. The default state of the check box--checked or unchecked.

Checked/Unchecked Syntax. Specifies the command syntax that is generated when the control is checked and when it is unchecked. To include the command syntax in the syntax template, use the value of the Identifier property. The generated syntax, whether from the Checked Syntax or Unchecked Syntax property, will be inserted at the specified position(s) of the identifier. For example, if the identifier is checkbox1, then at run time, instances of %%checkbox1%% in the syntax template will be replaced by the value of the Checked Syntax property when the box is checked and the Unchecked Syntax property when the box is unchecked.

  • You can specify any valid command syntax. For multi-line syntax or long syntax, click the ellipsis (...) button and enter your syntax in the Syntax Property dialog.

Enabling Rule. Specifies a rule that determines when the current control is enabled. Click the ellipsis (...) button to open the Enabling Rule dialog box and specify the rule. The Enabling Rule property is visible only when other controls that can be used to specify an enabling rule exist on the canvas.
