                    IsChecked = false
                cb1.SetBinding(CheckBox.IsCheckedProperty, new Binding
                    Source = dialog,
                    Path = new PropertyPath("IsPrimaryButtonEnabled"),
                    Mode = BindingMode.TwoWay,
                dialog.Content = panel;
                dialog.PrimaryButtonText = "OK";
                dialog.IsPrimaryButtonEnabled = false;
                ContentDialogResult result = await dialog.ShowAsync();

  • Hello Giuseppedev78,

    Though I feel it would be possible to read IsChecked properties immediately after dialog.ShowAsync() call, but you are trying to take a some different approach?

                ContentDialogResult result = await dialog.ShowAsync();
                bool check1_ischecked = cb.IsChecked.GetValueOrDefault(false);
                bool check2_ischecked = cb1.IsChecked.GetValueOrDefault(false);
                Debug.WriteLine("check1: " + check1_ischecked.ToString());
                Debug.WriteLine("check2: " + check2_ischecked.ToString());

    Welcome to the Developing Universal Windows apps forum! Please utilize tagging when posting to this forum, thanks!

    If you make the cb and cb1 as fields of the class, you can access the cb and cb1 ischecked property directly when the "OK" button taped.

                //register event
                dialog.PrimaryButtonClick += Button_Click1;
                ContentDialogResult result = await dialog.ShowAsync();
            CheckBox cb, cb1;
            private void Button_Click1(ContentDialog sender, ContentDialogButtonClickEventArgs args)
                Debug.WriteLine("check1: " + cb.IsChecked.ToString());
                Debug.WriteLine("check2: " + cb1.IsChecked.ToString());
