      Best example is probably a folder's property for the 'Read Only' in
      explorer. If the files in the folder are read-only and some are full
      access, the checkbox for 'read-only' is 'filled-in' (indeterminate'),
      ie, not checked or unchecked.

      Piotr,

      Thanks for clearing that up. The new note on the documentation helps.

      I guess I don't understand what an "indeterminant" state is. Can't we
      always determine the state of an object if we want to know? Can't we
      always set the state so that it is always determined? I test software
      at a small software company. If one of our developers sent me a change
      with a functioning grayed button or a non-functioning not grayed
      button I would send it back to get fixed. I have always thought
      grayed-out and diabled are synonomous. But, now that I think of it, I
      have seen grayed-out menu bars that function. They turn black when you
      click on any menu item. I have always thought that this was a bug.
      Maybe it isn't. I don't think we can expect software users to
      understand the subtle difference between grayed-out and indeterminant.
      They have better things to think about.
