Check out "imagesource" - it may be what you need.  You can do something

*set* the imageSource of char 1 of line 1 of fld "Test" of this cd to 878
Which is a "+" sign, but you can use your own images.  modTableField uses
this strategy and has icons for the checked and unchecked state.  You could
track state with a particular character in that position if needed.
