    Is it possible to differentiate between user clicked events and events which are fired because of program based setting?

    E.g. there is a Checkbox with
    Sub Checkbox_CheckedChange(Checked As Boolean)
    ' ... some code
    End Sub
    If the user checks the Checkbox with the mouse, the CheckedChange event and the sub Checkbox_CheckedChange is called.

    If I set
    Checkbox.Checked = True
    within my program, the sub Checkbox_CheckedChange ist called, too.

    Is there a way to differ between both calls or better prevent the sub Checkbox_CheckedChange to be called if set within program code?

    Check this example:
    Sub Process_Globals
    Private fx As JFX
    Private MainForm As Form
    Private chk1 As CheckBox
    End Sub

    Sub AppStart (Form1 As Form, Args() As String)
       MainForm = Form1
    End Sub

    Sub MainForm_MouseClicked (EventData As MouseEvent)
    End Sub

    Sub SetCheckState(chk As CheckBox, state As Boolean)
    If IsNumber(chk.Tag) = False Then chk.Tag = 0
       chk.Tag = chk.Tag + 
    If chk.Checked <> state Then chk.Checked = state
    End Sub

    Sub chk1_CheckedChange(Checked As Boolean)
    If IsNumber(chk1.Tag) AND chk1.Tag > 0 Then
         chk1.Tag = chk1.Tag - 
    End If
    Log("User changed state: " & Checked)
    End Sub
    Click on the form to change the value programmatically.
