unable to uncheck checkboxes

JSYJSY Posts: 9Member
hi. i'm new to programming PDAs. i'm currently writing a program that displays a menu (like in a restaurant situation) and transmits data (the customer's orders) frm the PDA via serial communication. currently, i've two problems.

for the GUI, i am only able to check the checkboxes but not uncheck it. the second problem wld b that the program hangs everytime i check the checkbox. this is weird as this very same program i;ve written works well on a tungstenE but hangs everytime i check a checkbox on a PalmIIIx. any insight to rectify the two problems i am facing? below are segments of my codes.

thx ..

rgds,
JSY

ctl1 = (ControlPtr)FrmGetObjectPtr(frmP,FrmGetObjectIndex(frmP,MainChickenBox));
chickenBoolean = (Boolean)CtlGetValue(ctl1);
handled1 =true;
break;

//Sets pointer to the BeeefBox checkbox and gets it boolean value
