Hello experts,
my problem is as follow,
i need to fill a checkboxlist with id values and labels differents,
for example Mr.DADA has an account_id = 1111,   i need to see DADA as checkbox label,
but i need to pass the id value 1111.

                <td valign="top">
                  <asp:panel id="panAccount" runat="server">
                        <asp:Label id="lbHeaderAccount" runat="server"> </asp:Label>
                        <asp:CheckBoxList id="chklAccounts_" runat="server" ></asp:CheckBoxList>

CODE BEHIND in order to populate the ckeckboxlist.
User_ = new User(....);
DataTable dt = ApplicationConfiguration.SystemConfiguration.AccountsRepository.FetchSubAccountFromAccountID_ToDT(User_.Account_id);
                  foreach(DataRow myRow in dt.Rows)
                        chklAccounts_.Items.Add(myRow["lastname"].ToString());    < --- label for the checkbox.
                                chklAccounts_.Items.  ---- myRow["id"] ----          ;                 <--- how to add a value that i will recover on postback???????

on postback, preparing an arrayList with the id values.

       foreach(ListItem item in this.chklAccounts_.Items)
                if(item.Selected == true)
                  alAccountsToExport.Add(.....???....)   <--- how to recover the id ??????????.

i need to fill the lines with question mark.
thanks in advance.
