I have a checkedListBox that has 14 choices that can be checked by the user.
I would like the end user to be able to select any of the 14 choices but be limted to
6 in total to be checked.  
I do not know how to allow for only 6 boxes to be checked in the CheckedListBox
while allowing for any of the 14 to be selected from.

Hi sample sol:


<asp:HiddenField ID="hiddenChkCount" runat="server" Value="0" />


<script type="text/javascript">function chkCount(obj){    if(obj.checked==true)    {        if( document.getElementById( '<%=hiddenChkCount.ClientID %>' ).value >= 6 )        {            alert('You cannot select more than 6 items.');            obj.checked=false;        }        else        {            document.getElementById( '<%=hiddenChkCount.ClientID %>' ).value = parseInt( document.getElementById( '<%=hiddenChkCount.ClientID %>' ).value ) + 1;        }    }    else    {        document.getElementById( '<%=hiddenChkCount.ClientID %>' ).value = parseInt( document.getElementById( '<%=hiddenChkCount.ClientID %>' ).value) - 1;    }}</script>

That's for ASP.NET. For VB right click on the CheckedListBox and hit view code. Then add the ItemCheck event handler and make it look something like this
   
 Private Sub CheckedListBox1_ItemCheck(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.ItemCheckEventArgs) Handles CheckedListBox1.ItemCheck
        If CheckedListBox1.CheckedIndices.Count >= 6 Then
            e.NewValue = CheckState.Unchecked
        End If
    End Sub
