Hi all,

I'm a beginner in wpf and i have a question. My checkbox inside my GridViewCheckBoxColumn looks strange. it looks like a square filled or not instead of a check. How can i change this ?



to look like this


Here is the xaml code of my column


<telerik:GridViewCheckBoxColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding SelectedProgram}"
                                            Header="Selection" Background="White"
                                            MinWidth="150" Tag="{windows:NameOf SelectedProgram, Type={x:Type local:AxisToCondition}}" IsReadOnly="False"
                                            AutoSelectOnEdit="True" EditTriggers="CellClick">


Is this simple to do ?


Thanks in advance and have a good day !

Hello Louis,

We have an article regarding the customization of the GridViewCheckBoxColumn when the cells are both in view mode and in edit mode. The article can be found at the following link:

WPF DataGrid - Styling CheckBoxColumn - Telerik UI for WPF

Generally, to achieve this, you could either create a custom ControlTemplate for the GridViewCheckBox control or extract its default one from the applied theme and modify it. Then, this ControlTemplate can be set to the Template property of the GridViewCheckBox element via Style as suggested in the above-shared article.

With this being said, I hope the provided information will be of help to you.
