Hi

Is there a way to change the ID of a listitem in a checkboxlist. with the following code, when I look at the source HTML asp.net
generates its own ID's for the checkboxes.. and I havent found a way to assign an own ID to the checkbox listitems...
Another thing is when I create a listitem (text and value).. when I look at the source html, the Values are not present for the checkbox..

I need the values and the ID's to be retrieved from the form when submitting the form...


-BEGIN CODE-
Dim checkbnew As New CheckBoxList
dim f_tekst as string
dim f_value as string

f_tekst = "text of the checkbox"
f_value = "value of the checkbox"

Dim lstitem As New ListItem(f_tekst, f_value)                        
checkbnew.Items.Add(lstitem)
-END CODE-

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByValue As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
'Put user code to initialize the page here
If Not Page.IsPostBack Then

Dim objListItem As New ListItem("joe", "millionaire")
Dim objListItem2 As New ListItem("regis", "philbin")
CheckBoxList1.Items.Clear()
CheckBoxList1.Items.Add(objListItem)
CheckBoxList1.Items.Add(objListItem2)
End If
end sub

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As
System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles
Button1.Click
Response.Write
(CheckBoxList1.SelectedItem.Value.ToString)
End Sub

------------------------

or you can just add your own objects. and you should also use multi-select list box
e.g.
public class Student
 
  public overrides function toString() as string
    return fname_ & " " & lname_
  end function

  private fname_,lname_ as string
  public id_ as long

  public sub new(fname as string, lname as string, id as long)
     fname_=fname
     lname_=lname
     id_=id
  end sub
end class

in your form ...

mylistbox.items.add(new Student("Joe","Millionaire",1000000))
mylistbox.items.add(new Student("Regis","Philben",2000000))
..

dim x as integer
dim temp as Student
for x=0 to mylistbox.Items.Count-1
   if mycheckboxlist.Items(x).Selected then
      temp=ctype(mycheckboxlist.Items(x),student)
      ' temp.id_  <===== this is your student id for the selected item
   end if
next
