CheckBoxList control

Hello,

I need to update multiple values in my DB using my CheckBoxList control. Please see my code below but i'm having a red line under the word "parameter".


                  foreach (ListItem item in cblTests.Items) {
                        if (item.Selected) {
                              cmdInsertStudentTests.Parameters("@testid").Value = item.Value;
                              cmdInsertStudentTests.ExecuteNonQuery();
                        }

Hi
what is your parameter data type here is the code I am assuming parameter @testid is string(VarChar) and size as 50
 foreach (ListItem item in cblTests.Items) {
                        if (item.Selected) {
                              cmdInsertStudentTests.Parameters("@testid",SqlDbType.VarChar, 50, "testid");
.Value = item.Value.ToString();
                              cmdInsertStudentTests.ExecuteNonQuery();
                        }

or you can use
Parameters.AddWithValue() method.
foreach (ListItem item in cblTests.Items) {
                        if (item.Selected) {
                              cmdInsertStudentTests.Parameters.AddWithValue("@testid",item.Value.ToString());
                              cmdInsertStudentTests.ExecuteNonQuery();
                        }

the code below did not work. It had a "red line" under the word parameters saying "Non invocable member 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.Parameters' cannot be used like a method.


            foreach (ListItem item in cblTests.Items) {
                       if (item.Selected) {
                             cmdInsertStudentTests.Parameters("@testid",SqlDbType.VarChar, 50, "testid").Value = item.Value.ToString();
                             cmdInsertStudentTests.ExecuteNonQuery();
                       }
