Yes, a CheckBox in TaskDialog is tied to VerificationText. It does not make sense to show a CheckBox without text.
What is the bug?
You should ask about component usage in forum or mailing list before opening bug reports.

The bug is that VerificationText property have a text (see OI) and the checkBox does not appears if you don't press the key enter after you type the text of VerificationText in OI. Of course if you do this by code, all works fine.

Do you mean this report has nothing to do with TaskDialog and its VerificationText?

I think this is just an example of a problem that happens everywhere with the OI, its not restricted to this control and its been around for a while now..

When you are editing in the OI or using a property input in the OI and don't hit enter or jump to another item in the OI but instead just move off the OI Tablet form and use some other function in the IDE , like compile or run etc.. The Changes you made in the OI are not updated..

  This only happens if you leave the focus from the OI to some other point in the IDE before you HIT Enter or move to another property in the OI so that it can be completed.

It is a bug in Object Inspector, yes.
I changed the summary line.
I remember this was fixed many years ago but it was an ugly hack and apparently has been removed since.
Somebody please debug and fix it properly.
OTOH this is not a serious bug. Once you learn to know it, you press Enter always after editing a field.

[Edit] I found the old issue. It was reported over 10 years ago in 2010.
