    Yes
    You use the fnction (in WIN32 API)
    CheckDlgButton()

    HWND of dialog, not button but you must know which dlg the button is on as you put it there
    int ID of button on dialog, the ID in resource editor or the one from the HMENU cast.
    UINT state

    state =BST_UNCHECKED or BST_CHECKED

    You can test its state with

    IsDlgButtonChecked()

    i'm not sure this is what you want, but...

    SendMessage(HANDLE_OF_BUTTON, BM_CLICK, 0, 0);

    hope it helps.
