Android Question Return Checkbox Value as string.

    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

    The problem is somewhere else. Checbox.Checked will return True or False based on the value. It will be converted to string automatically.

    Edit: ignore this question - I was not aware that the issue had been resolved in another thread.

    Where I was heading was that if the "&" somehow slipped through to the Java intermediate code as a boolean AND operator rather than a string concatenation operator, then the output might well just be the word "false" rather than "CheckBox Value,True"... which would have been mighty interesting ;-)

    Just in case the impossible is happening: what precisely is that WriteLine writing (the entire line, from start to end)?
