Could you tell me if it's possible to link a checkbox to a cell as per Excel's Format Control Cell Link property?

I'd like to be able to detect a change in a checkbox status and use it in conditional formatting without having to rely on macros. As an example, when a checkbox is checked I'd like to set font strikethrough.

Hi Adrian,

Sorry for the delayed response.

Currently Essential XlsIO does not support LinkedCell property for checkboxes.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Geetha

Is this something you propose to implement in the near future? I can't really see the purpose of the checkbox without it other than to make a spreadsheet look good and you can't really claim to fully support the control.

I notice that the combobox does support the feature and wonder why that would be different.

Hi Adrian,

I regret for the long delay in responding.

We have logged a feature request to implement LinkedCell for CheckBox and will get back to you once it is implemented.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
