A quick question about standard control properties;

I have just started using the Winforms control set and started throwing some controls onto the forms expecting to have little problem when swapping out standard controls (buttons, check boxes) etc.  I was surprised to find that the checkbox doesn't have a checked property??  Obviously I should be using IsChecked, but why the deviation from having the standard properties.  I assumed that I should be able to simply swap out the basic UI controls without issue.  Am I missing something very obvious here??

Thanks in advance.

Hi Derek,

Indeed, there are a few small differences in the API between our controls and the standard ones distributed currently with .NET Framework 2.0. However, when we designed our controls we decided to make their API to conform most closely with the API of the standard controls in the new .NET Framework 3.0.

So, particularly for the RadCheckBox, we chose to replace the Checked property with IsChecked as it is in the 
Microsoft checkbox .
 
If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to write us.

All the best,
