Used to get or set the state of the cell with the coordinates of row, column (zero-based). This assumes that the passed cell is a CheckBox cell. Use the CellType property to set a cell to a CheckBox cell. CheckedStates Enumeration is an Enum of the CheckBox class.


The CellState method enables you to get or set the value of a tri-state Checkbox cell. Any cell of type TypeCheckbox box can store one of three values: Checked, Unchecked, and Indeterminate.

To set up a cell as TypeCheckbox, use code such as this in the Open event:

Me.CellType(1, 0) = ListBox.TypeCheckBox

To change the state of the cell, use the CheckedStates enum of the CheckBox control:

ListBox1.CellState(1, 0) = Checkbox.CheckedStates.Indeterminate

The Indeterminate state places a minus sign in the checkbox macOS) or filled in checkbox (Windows and Linux).
