how to use Roles.GetUsersInRole by selecting roles from checkbox list

I have app using standard roles and membership.  I have checkbox that is populated with all roles like this

           checkbox1.DataSource = Roles.GetAllRoles();
           checkbox1.DataBind();

I want to check a number of roles on the checkbox and if the role is selected then add all usernames to a list.  Something like

foreach (ListItem theseRoles in checkbox.Items)
            {
                if (checkbox.Selected)

//then add all the usernames to the list

listofUserNames = new List<string>(Roles.GetUsersInRole(checkbox.text));

//and so on adding all the usernames to the list for each checkbox role checked.

How can I implement this?

             int i;
            // Get all of the users
             MembershipUserCollection allUsers = Membership.GetAllUsers();
             MembershipUserCollection filteredUsers = new MembershipUserCollection();
 
             for (i = 0; i < checkbox1.Items.Count; i++)
             {
                 if (checkbox1.Items[i].Selected)
                 {
                     // If we are filtering by role, get the users in the specified role
                     string[] usersInRole = Roles.GetUsersInRole(checkbox1.Items[i].Value);
   
                     // For each user in the role, add the user details to filteredUsers
                     foreach (MembershipUser user in allUsers)
                     {
                        foreach (string userInRole in usersInRole)
                         {
                            if (userInRole == user.UserName)
                            {
                              filteredUsers.Add(user);
                              break; // Breaks out of the inner foreach loop to avoid unneeded checking.
                            }
                         }
                     }
                 }
             }
