B4J Question Checkbox Value


Active Member

I have a save config routine which looks at the state of some checkboxes along with some textfield values and saves them to a file.

Text is saving fine but for some reason I can't seem to get the checkbox value.. It always returns false even when it's ticked.

Elsewhere in my code I'm using an if statement e.g.

If Checkbox1.checked = True then
End If
This is working fine.

But when I do this

Writer.Writeline("CheckBox Value," & CheckBox1.Checked)
I always write false

@ElliotHC You never mentioned how you load your settings to set the checkbox state. It is recommended that you load the actual value on a new line or else the remark will be used as the value. That's why it always remains False. Always provide enough information so that others can understand what you're doing :)
