MVVM And CheckListBox

I have followed the sample from the following post ...


but I cannot find a way to add a SelectedItem in code and have the associated checkbox ticked as a result.

I added a button to the main window, with the following click event:

        private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            ClassViewModel cvm = (ClassViewModel)DataContext;

When i click the button, the item gets added to the listbox as expected, BUT THE RESPECTIVE CHECKBOX REMAINS UNTICKED. Which is the problem!!

Please can you help? :0)

I have attached the project I am working with.

Hi James,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products,

We have modified the sample that tries to meet your requirement. In this sample, we have added the new items by setting its IsSelected property as true in the button click, so that the items gets added in the listbox and also respective checkbox gets checked. Please download the sample from the following location:
