CheckBox: CheckBox is a graphical user interface element that allows the user to make multiple selections from a number of options. A CheckBox control is a ContentControl, which means it can contain content such as text, images, or panels. CheckBox controls inherit from the ToggleButton class, which in turn inherits from ButtonBase. Most important, ToggleButton adds an IsChecked property. IsChecked is a nullable Boolean, which means it can be set to true, false, or null. Obviously, true represents a checked box, while false represents an empty one. The null value is a little trickierâ€"it represents an indeterminate state, which is displayed as a shaded box.

The given below example shows CheckBox example based on a states that is key pressed states.

        <UniformGrid Columns="2">
                <Style TargetType="{x:Type CheckBox}">
                    <Setter Property="IsHitTestVisible" Value="False" />
                    <Setter Property="Margin" Value="5" />
            <CheckBox Content="LeftShift" Name="chkLControl"/>
            <CheckBox Content="RightShift" Name="chkRControl" Width="92" /> 
        <Button Content="Check" Margin="10" Click="Button_Click"/>
