Change Checkbox value without triggering onCheckChanged

I have

setOnCheckedChangeListener
implemented for my
checkbox


Is there a way I can call

checkbox.setChecked(false);


without triggering the
onCheckedChanged

Answer

No, you can't do it. The onCheckedChanged method is called directly from setChecked. What you can do is the following:

mCheck.setOnCheckedChangeListener (null);
mCheck.setChecked (false);
mCheck.setOnCheckedChangeListener (mListener);

See the source of CheckBox, and the implementation of setChecked:

public void  setChecked(boolean checked) {
    if (mChecked != checked) {
        mChecked = checked;
        refreshDrawableState();

        // Avoid infinite recursions if setChecked() is called from a listener
        if (mBroadcasting) {
            return;
        }

        mBroadcasting = true;
        if (mOnCheckedChangeListener != null) {
            mOnCheckedChangeListener.onCheckedChanged(this, mChecked);
        }

        if (mOnCheckedChangeWidgetListener != null) {
            mOnCheckedChangeWidgetListener.onCheckedChanged(this, mChecked);
        }

        mBroadcasting = false;            
    }
}
