Suggested Videos:

In this video we will learn about the properties, methods and events of an CheckBox control

CheckBox Control is used, when you want the user to select more than one option from the available choices. For example, the education of a person. A person can have a graduate degree, post graduate degree and a doctrate. In this case the user selects all the 3 checkboxes. Where as a person, may just have a graduate degree, in which case he only selects, the graduate checkbox.

Another example, would be when you want the user to select the days of his availability. check box example

In short, if you want to provide the user with more than one option to select from, then choose a check box Control.

Focus() - Just like TextBox, checkbox also supports, Focus() method. If you want to set the input focus, to a specific checkbox, Call this method for that check box control.

    <fieldset style="width:350px">
        <asp:CheckBox ID="GraduateCheckBox" Checked="true" Text="Graduate" runat="server" 
            oncheckedchanged="GraduateCheckBox_CheckedChanged" />
        <asp:CheckBox ID="PostGraduateCheckBox" Text="Post Graduate" runat="server" />
        <asp:CheckBox ID="DoctrateCheckBox" Text="Doctrate" runat="server" />
    <br /><br />
    <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Submit" onclick="Button1_Click" />

Code from the CodeBehind file
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (!IsPostBack)

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    StringBuilder sbUserChoices = new StringBuilder();
    if (GraduateCheckBox.Checked)
    if (PostGraduateCheckBox.Checked)
        sbUserChoices.Append(", " + PostGraduateCheckBox.Text);
    if (DoctrateCheckBox.Checked)
        sbUserChoices.Append(", " + DoctrateCheckBox.Text);
