How to increase the CheckBox size of the GridViewSelectColumn.


  1. Define the following style targetting the CheckBox control.

    <Style x:Key="LargeCheckBoxStyle" TargetType="CheckBox" BasedOn="{StaticResource CheckBoxStyle}"> 
        <Setter Property="LayoutTransform"> 
                <ScaleTransform ScaleX="2" ScaleY="2" /> 

    If you're not using the implicit styles mechanism for theming the controls with the NoXaml binaries, you need to omit the BasedOn attribute.

  2. Set the style as the CheckBoxStyle of the GridViewSelectColumn.

    <telerik:GridViewSelectColumn CheckBoxStyle="{StaticResource LargeCheckBoxStyle}" /> 

    Alternatively you can edit the default control template of the checkbox and increase the sizes of its composing elements.

A similar approach can also be applied to the checkbox in the header of the RadGridView control by specifying a custom style as the HeaderCheckBoxStyle.
