Example Code

Listbox with Checkboxes

Code and Documents

Attachment

Attached a vi example of a single column listbox with a checkbox to select a given row. The example shows how to use the Item Symbols of the row to simulate a user clicking on a checkbox to select/deselect the item row.  Also includes in the header row a checkbox to select/deselect ALL the rows of the control.

The VI will also return an array of strings that indicate the items that were checked by the user.

Here is the front panel:

Version 2:  The checkbox in the column header the 'ALL' checkbox was not entirely correct.  Now, if you select the ALL checkbox and subsequently deselect any checkboxes by the states the ALL checkbox is also deselected.  Same goes if you select all the row checkboxes the ALL checkbox will be checked.

Thanks,

PH

Very good sample. Thanks so much for sharing. One question: How do you create that Ring constant with symbol selection?
