How to prevent ItemCheck event from firing

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

You can do something like this:


Private bolFireItemCheckEvent As Boolean

    Private Sub CheckedListBox1_ItemCheck(sender As Object, _
                e As ItemCheckEventArgs) Handles CheckedListBox1.ItemCheck
        If bolFireItemCheckEvent Then
            'Whatever code is needed here
        End If
    End Sub 

And set this Boolean to True/False where you need it

Have fun.

RE: How to prevent ItemCheck event from firing

That would work fine.

I was also looking at doing it by using the event handler, if possible. I know I can do:

event -= handler;

But I want to do it without actually knowing what the handler is.
