checkbox c# ASP.NET

I have several dynamic checkbox (i use html checkbox, but if necessary i use asp.net checkbox) with same name and same ID, how do I retrieve the values checked when an asp: button is clicked?

I use C# on ASP.NET page.

thanks for help.

You cant have a page with multiple controls with the same ID. It should not compile and if it did it would be a really bad practice (same name also bad practice). These best thing you could do is to create a dynamic ID as you populate the page with controls. i.e. have a integer counter, i, and then increment it by 1 every-time you add a control.
so eventually you page will have a list of controls on the page like this:
<asp:checkboxlist id="CheckBoxList1" runat="server">
 <asp:Checkbox id="checkbox1" name="checkbox" runat="server">
 <asp:Checkbox id="checkbox2" name="checkbox" runat="server">
 <asp:Checkbox id="checkbox3" name="checkbox" runat="server">

when your asp.net button is pressed you can cycle through all your controls like this:

string values;

foreach ( CheckBox box in CheckBoxList1)
 if if (box.Checked)
   values = values + box.Value;

this checkboxes is grouped by category and i have one or more category, can i have dynamic CheckBoxList? how can I learn how to complete the loop? There is an equivalent function to the eval javascript, but to page compiled?
