How to prevent ItemCheck event from firing

How to prevent ItemCheck event from firing

If I have a CheckedListBox with an ItemCheck event defined, how do I set it to fire only if a user actually selects a checkbox item not when I check it programmatically.

Right now, if I programmatically set all the checkboxes, I will enter the event code 10 times if I have 10 checkbox items.

I don't want it to fire at all here.

But when the user selects a checkbox, then I want it to fire.



RE: How to prevent ItemCheck event from firing


Shot in the dark here but..

If you set a session var just prior to you program checking the boxes and then tell the event that's auto-firing
to pass over the checking if the session var = what ever. Then at the end of the programmatic checking, clear/change the session var so the event when fired allows the events action.


sub programmatic code
session("passover")= ("yes")

setting check boxes etc..

session("passover")= = ("no")

End Sub

Sub ckeckbox Event

If session("passover")= ("no") then
do event stuff
end if

end sub

The ItemChecked event is available only for a checkboxlist on a Windows Form control, not an ASP.NET checkboxlist control
