In this article we will learn how to use CheckBox control in WPF using Visual Basic.NET.

CheckBox control

The CheckBox control is used to display a check box. The CheckBox control gives us an option to select true/false. A checkbox is clicked to select and clicked again to deselect some option. When a checkbox is selected, a check (a tick mark) appears indicating a selection.

Properties - This control has the following properties.


Figure 1.

Content - show the  text  shown with the CheckBox.

IsChecked: Specifies whether the check box is checked or not.

CheckBox event:

Private Sub CheckBox1_Checked(ByVal sender As System.ObjectByVal e AsSystem.Windows.RoutedEventArgsHandles CheckBox1.Checked

End Sub

For example:

Drag and drop two CheckBoxes, a TextBox and a Button control on to the form. Set the Text property for the CheckBoxes as Male and Female. The following code will display the text of the CheckBox that is checked in the textbox when the button is clicked. Form looks like this.

XAML code:

<Window x:Class="MainWindow"



Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">


        <CheckBox Content="Male" Height="16" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="10,10,0,0"Name="CheckBox1" VerticalAlignment="Top" />

        <CheckBox Content="Female" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="10,36,0,0"Name="CheckBox2" Height="16" VerticalAlignment="Top" />

        <TextBox Height="23" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="124,12,0,0" Name="TextBox1"VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="120" />

        <Button Content="Button" Height="23" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="156,65,0,0"Name="Button1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="75" />

        If CheckBox1.IsChecked Then

            TextBox1.Text = "You are Gender: mail"
