#852 – Setting a Three-State CheckBox to an Indeterminate Value

A three-state CheckBox can take on one of three values: true, false, or indeterminate.  You can use data binding to get/set the value of a three-state CheckBox, binding the control to a nullable bool.

You can also explicitly set the value of a CheckBox, in either XAML or code.

To set a CheckBox to an indeterminate value in code, just set its IsChecked property to null.

            chkPie.IsChecked = null;

To set a CheckBox to an indeterminate value in XAML, set its IsChecked property to {x:Null}.

        <CheckBox Name="chkPie" Content="I Like Pie" IsThreeState="True"
                  IsChecked="{x:Null}"/>
