    I have a series of bound check boxes on a form. When you first view the form,
    all of the check boxes are shaded. When you click the checkbox, of course it
    places a check in it. When you uncheck a box, that box becomes white. Then I
    have 1 white check box and the others are still shaded. Is the shade in the
    checkbox supposed to show me that its a virgin checkbox? I just want to make
    sure that its nothing that im doing incorrectly. Any help is appreciated,
    Thank You

    No its fine. The shading indicates null (no value). When you check a text box
    it has a value of -1. When you uncheck it will have a value of 0.

    You could set the check box's default value to 0. I think that will get rid
    of the gray.
