Stored procedures
..TriState is used to:
  • Find out whether an option found in a check box supports 3 states (checked, unchecked or undefined) or 2 states (checked or unchecked).
  • Versions 16 and later
    Find out whether a treeview control supports 3 states (checked, unchecked or undefined) or 2 states (checked or unchecked)
    New in version 16
    Find out whether a treeview control supports 3 states (checked, unchecked or undefined) or 2 states (checked or unchecked)
    Find out whether a treeview control supports 3 states (checked, unchecked or undefined) or 2 states (checked or unchecked)
  • Modify the type of an option found in a check box: option with 3 states or with 2 states.
Remark: If the option supports the three states, it can take for value:
  • 0: the option is unchecked
  • 1: the option is checked
  • -1: the option is undefined (grayed)
At runtime, if the option supports three states, a first click performed on an unchecked option will check it and a second click will give it an unspecified value.
Caution: A WLanguage error occurs if an option that supports 2 states takes -1 for value. Similarly, a WLanguage error occurs if a 3-state option initialized to -1 is changed into a 2-state option.
Example
// Defines an unspecified option
CBOX_CheckBox1[1]..TriState = True
CBOX_CheckBox1[1] = -1
