I have created a new item in my BarManager, and allowed it to be checked. I'm using the Reflection trick to call various functions when my commands are clicked. Now, when this specific item is clicked, I would like to see if it's currently checked or not, and then do some thing. But how is that possible?

I'm using the latest (trial) version of UIStudio :)

Hi Kasper,

You can always get the Checked state of a checkable command but you have to cast the command to its type. So for instance, the following code in our BarForm. It updates whether the MDI child close button is visible based on whether the View menu's associated checkable button command is checked or not.
private void ProcessViewMdiChildCloseButtonVisibility() {
    barManager.MdiChildCloseButtonVisible =

Okay great, thank you. However, that does not give me access to the Visible property of the button. What should I cast to, to set the visibility of a menu item?

No cast is needed for that since Visible is common to all links. For instance this works fine in the BarForm sample:
barManager.DockableToolBars["Standard"].CommandLinks["File.New"].Visible = false;
