I have a checkbox which I would like to use to show and hide other objects on the web page.

my code is


protected void altService_checkbox_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        #region show and hide alternative service lables and text boxes through the checkbox.
        if (altService_checkbox.Checked == true)
        {
            LearningPoints_Label.Visible = true;
        }
        else if (altService_checkbox.Checked == false)
        {
            LearningPoints_Label.Visible = false;
        }
        #endregion
}

When I check the checkbox nothing happens.

I am using c# and asp.net

can anybody help

thanks

Hi,

Forgot to say it's the AutoPostBack property of the CheckBox, you can set it either declaratively:

<asp:CheckBox ID="CheckBox1" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true"/>

Or in code behind:

CheckBox1.AutoPostBack = true;

/Carl.
