So you want to add checkbox controls dynamically for each entry in an array list?
Add a CheckBoxList on your form.
Assuming id of the checklist box just added is cbList.
Assuming itemsArrayList is the arraylist.

In your code behind, write this code:

foreach (string str in itemsArrayList)
    ListItem item = new ListItem(str, str);

Open in new window
