I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

what language, HTML, javascript??
If you are talking about the .NET CheckedListBox, then, as far as I know, you cannot disable and enable single items. It is intended to be used as a listbox (i.e., when an item should be disabled, you need to remove it from the list).

i u say dynamically, it is possible. like i have a list of values and wants to show in checkbox.. so u can do it as follows:

we have a table having 2 fields.... category and status.... (in status field we mention the action either it is enabled for user or not)

Logic is simple....

open the connection...
here u check what value u stored in status field ....

if (status not equels to "enabled") then
<input checkbox field set property.... disabled="disabled">
show as it is ....
end if
close connection

I hope this will solve ur problem

You need remove the unwanted checkbox instead of disabling
