There are a couple in the default asp.net control set:

The Listview control allows you to select multiple items by shift-clicking and ctrl-clicking them.
The CheckboxList allows you to select multiple items by checking each one

Can you show me an example how to do a checklistbox?
I have a select statement- Select ID,Last,First,Address,Cit,State,Zip and it returns 20 items/records.
Id like to put a multiple checkbox so I can mass-process it. thanks

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Thanks , I check the link and there is not much about checklistbox. I think the Gridview is a better alternative as I tried to explore its features but I m not yet fully understanding of Gridview's ability to provide an array of checlboxes  to match the number of records coming from a dataset or query.
Are you familiar with Gridview and how can it be implemented here?

sure you can use a gridview with a checkbox column, that would make it easier to have multiple columns as per your select statement, but you wont be able to get a collection of checked items without looping through all the rows and seeing if the box is checked.

just design your gridview in the designer and then in the code behind check if the boxes are checked.


pseudocode to give the idea of looping through the rows

for each row in gridview.rows
{
      //get the cell value for your checkbox column for this row
      bool isChecked = row.cells[checkboxColumnIndex]

      if (isChecked = true) then do whatever it is that you do with checked rows

}
