How to get check box value the user selected at same asp page?

I am writing one asp page. In this page there is one check box and when clinking the Submit button, depending on the check box value, will go to two different links. My question is how do i get check box value at same page to go to one of link?

Use the onclick function of the checkbox.    If you dont want this happening as soon as the user clicks the checkbox, use another event, like onclick on the submit button.   You ll have to get the reference to the checkbox using

document.getElementsbyName('chk1')[0]

<script>

function chk1_onClick(obj)
{
    if(this.checked)
    {
          location.href='page1.asp';
    }
    else
    {
          location.href = 'page2.asp';
    }
}

end function
</script>

<input type=checkbox name='chk1' onclick='chk1_onClick(this);'>

You would use javascript to pull this one off.  Something like this:

<form name=myForm method=post target="Page1.asp">
<input type=checkbox name=chkChangeTarget onClick="ChangeTarget();">
...
</form>
<script language=javascript>
function ChangeTarget()
{
    if(myForm.chkChangeTarget.checked)
        myForm.Target = "Page2.asp";
    else
        myForm.Target = "Page1.asp";
    return;
}
</script>

zhao,

This is client-side code that will run on the user's computer.  It is not actually ASP.  If you like I could post the same code using server-side VBScript but note that this will do exactly the same thing, only it won't work in non-microsoft browsers.

(sorry, i meant "client side vbscript" not "server-side vbscript" in the above post.)

You can use VBScript clientside to pull off what you want to do, but you will limit yourself to IE broswers.   You cannot use server side code without going first to the server.

The vbscript is roughly the same

<script language="VBScript">

Function chk1_onClick(obj)
     
   if obj.checked then
         location.href = 'page1.asp';
   else
          location.href = 'page1.asp';
   end if
End Function
</script>

If you do not want to do this on the client, you can do it on the server using

if request("chk1") <> "" then
    Response.redirect "Page1.asp"
else
    Response.Redirect "Page2.asp"
end if
