For editing set of enumerated types. Let's assume that we have following definitions.

   type
      TMonth = (Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec);
      TMonths = set of TMonth;
      //
      TForm1 = class(TForm)
      private
         FMonths: TMonths;
      published
         property Months: TMonths read FMonths write FMonths;
      end;

Properties of TTICheckListBox.Link can be assigned as following way.

      with TICheckListBox1.LInk do begin
          TIObject:= Form1;
          TIPropertyName := 'Months';
      end;

Assigning TTICheckListBox.Link.AliasValues will change displayed string of items. So, if defined in following way,

      with TICheckListBox1.LInk do begin
          with AliasValues do begin
             Clear;
             Add('Jan=January');
             Add('Feb=February');
             Add('Mar=March');
             Add('Apr=April');
             Add('Nov=November');
             Add('Dec=December');
          end;
          TIObject:= Form1;
          TIPropertyName := 'Months';
      end;

The checklist items will be displayed in following way and order:

    January
    February
    March
    April
    November
    December 
    May
    Jun
    Jul
    Aug
    Sep
    Oct
    

The "checked" months will be correctly stored in the FMonths field of Form1. That is, if you ckeck November, then

      Nov in FMonths

will return true.
