    Default Can't seem to control the checkbox

    my current code is

    HTML Code:
    FileInputStream input = new FileInputStream(Util.getWorkingDirectory().getAbsolutePath() + File.separator + LoadTextfield.getText() + ".txt");
                    BufferedReader a = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(input));
                    for (i = 0; i < 100; i++){
                         if (i == 5){
    the value of a.readline() when i = 5 is true. I'm getting confused on why the checkbox isn't setting itself to true.

    It works fine when i use PickUpBonesCheckbox.setSelected(Boolean.valueOf("t rue");

    The purpose of the for loop is unclear. Please explain what you're doing there.
