I have a "to do" list and have a an empty check box and a marked checkbox graphic. My question is which situation would perform the best:

1) To have two fields on the table one which would have a 1 or a 0 and a second field which has an "If" or "Case" calculation which enters the correct graphic based on the 0 or 1. On the layout have a field to show the auto enter field.

2) Same situation as above but instead of the 1 and 0 just have one field with a button on the layout with an If statement that toggles the correct graphic into the field and show that field as the button?

3) Same as #1 but instead of a second field with a calculation put both graphics on the layout with show hide based on the field with the 1 or 0?


There is a lot of flexibility in how to do this but which one would perform fastest?


The checkbox graphic is just under 2kb.
