Design

To make a check box, we need a box, a check mark, and mouse event handler.  A box can be drawn with GraphicsWindow.FillRectangle().  A check mark can be drawn with Shapes.AddText() and "Wingdings 2" font.  In mouse event handler, let's check whether mouse is clicked in the box or not and change the state of the check box.

Sample Program

I uploaded a sample program as TCX734 .  This program can generate a PIN code.  Including alphabet or not can be select with our check box.
