making a checkbox checked...

Hi I'm trying to get a checkbox to be checked depending on something but I dont know how to do this... for example

                if (Onsite == "Yes")
                {
                    CheckBoxAvail.Checked == true;
                }

You are making an equality check with two equals signs "==".

You need an assignment, which is just one equals sign:

    CheckBoxAvail.Checked = true;

HIi...
thanks for that but it doesn't work..

                string Avail = Comp["Available"].ToString();

                if (Avail == "Yes")
                {
                    CheckBoxAvail.Checked = true;
                }

I'm getting the information from a SQL dataset and its still not working... any ideas why??

Even tried this...

                string Avail = "Yes";

                if (Avail == "Yes")
                {
                    CheckBoxAvail.Checked = true;
                }
                else
                {
                    CheckBoxAvail.Checked = false;
                }

I don't see anything wrong with the CheckBox assignment and unfortunately I don't work with DBs very much.

Is this by chance a WebForm?...I don't work with those either.  =\

Ok works with
                string Avail = "Yes";

                Response.Write(Avail);

                if (Avail == "Yes")
                {
                    CheckBoxAvail.Checked=true;
                }

but as soon as I use this line

string Avail = Comp["Available"].ToString();

it does not work

        int PCID = Convert.ToInt32(Request.QueryString["pcid"]);

        DataSet CompSet = SQLQueries.CompDetailBindData(PCID);

        string sPCIDValue = Convert.ToString(PCID);



            if (null != CompSet && 0 < CompSet.Tables[0].Rows.Count)
            {
                DataRow Comp = CompSet.Tables[0].Rows[0];

                LabelCompModel.Text = Comp["PcModel"].ToString();
                TextBoxCCCSR.Text = Comp["CCCSR"].ToString();
                TextBoxEPSR.Text = Comp["EPSR"].ToString();
                TextBoxShipDate.Text = Comp["ShipDate"].ToString();
                LabelOnsite.Text = Comp["OnSite"].ToString();
                LabelUser.Text = Comp["UserID"].ToString();

                string Avail = Comp["Available"].ToString();
               
                //string Avail = "Yes";

                Response.Write(Avail);

                if (Avail == "Yes")
                {
                    CheckBoxAvail.Checked = true;
                }
                else
                {
                    CheckBoxAvail.Checked = false;
                }
   

            }
        }

What type of field is "Available"?
After you do this,
string Avail = Comp["Available"].ToString();
is the value of Avail defintiely "Yes"?

What is the out put of  "Response.Write(Avail);"?
"==" operator over string is case sensitive.
If you are sure 'Avail' is always lowercase, use  if (Avail == "yes")

or try 'if(string.Compare(Avail,"Yes", true)==0)'
