CheckBox1.Attributes.Add("onClick", "journals(this,this.checked)")
CheckBox1.Attributes.Add("value", CType(pjournallabel.Text, Integer) + CType(ejournallabel.Text, Integer))
CheckBox2.Attributes.Add("onClick", "journals(this,this.checked)")
CheckBox2.Attributes.Add("value", ejournallabel.Text)

For check box, the "value" attributes is if the box is selected or not.
