    I am trying to create logic so that, based on a Boolean value, the user will be unable to "click" a TreeviewItem's check box. Unfortunately, I'm getting all kinds of unexpected behavior.

    Based on some logic (seeing if this Boolean is set to true and seeing the number of selected items), I have an If statement in Treeview_Checked set the TreeviewItem.CheckState to Automation.ToggleState.Off. This works, and then runs through the Treeview_Unchecked code.

    I let the program run until the very last bit of the "Treeview_Checked" snippet where the  e.Source.CheckState is still set to Off. However, as soon as I get back to the GUI interface the checkbox does have a check in it.

    I can't see where this is being set and how I can interrupt it. I tried using the PreviewCheck and PreviewUnchecked events, but neither made a difference.

    I'm using v2009.3.1219.1030 version as the latest release causes other parts of my code to function incorrectly, and would like to be able to stay with the version I am currently using.

    Any suggestions on how I can get the functionality I'm look for? Thanks in advance.


    We decided to go with a different approach. We wiped out the list and then repopulated it with the newly selected item. Thanks to David for getting the creative juices flowing!

    I have the same application requirements, but I hid the checkbox if the user can't check it, so I don't care what state it's in.
    I also modified the control template so the space for the checkbox remained despite it being hidden.

    Looks good and works well
