How do you do this code for a bound checkbox? I am wanting to hide some frames but would like this to work once they have been sent and opened too.

You would use the PropertyChange or CustomPropertyChange event to replace the Click event handler (see ), and also include code in the Item_Open event handler to adjust the UI when the recipient opens the item.

I'm having problems with my checkboxes. I want to check them and have them stay checked once they are sent ( I want the recipient to view the boxes checked)

Astoria, then you need to bind each check box to an Outlook Yes/No property. Do this at the top of the Value tab on the Properties dialog for the control, creating new properties as needed.

I have a bound checkbox bound to a text box within a frame. What I would like to do is set a code that when the checkbox is selected the text box which is hidden will be visible and a message box prompts..."please enter account number"...
Thank you

Jacqueline, for a bound check box, you'll need to use the CustomPropertyChange event, as shown on the page I suggested.

The buttons within the form I have created only works when I run in designing and when it is published. For some reason they do not work when I save the outlook form on my desktop for example. All other funstions of the form work correctly when it is saved on the destop apart from the buttons. Can some one help??? Code below...

Sub Bob_Click()
    Set Value = Item.UserProperties("CC")
    Item.UserProperties("CC").Value = ";;"
End Sub

What do I need to do to ensure when a check box is checked by the sender, so it shows as checked when it is viewed by the recipient?

Todd, you would need to bind the check box to an Outlook property and, on the read layout for the form, show a check box control bound to the same property.
