in the other project, they are encapsulated with updatepanel

and the checkbox is inside panel.

when doing this :
if (!objChk.Checked)
                    {
                        objChk.Enabled = false;

                       
                    }

all of the checkboxes turned enabled false with updatepanel update.
in this project, i first tested out without updatepanel and also tested checkboxed with panel, they won;t work.
now im having a response.redirect back to the page and set the checkboxes invisi and they worked,,

I looked at the code and I don't see anything wrong.  HOwever, it sounds like you should be using radio button instead.  A radio button group will give you the functionality you are looking for: you can only select one at a time.

abdkhlaifCommented:
did you try to debug and step into chkanswer_CheckChanged method?

I think your event handler chkanswer_CheckChanged is not executing because its not associated with the OnCheckedChanged event

change the method to 'protected' then add this code to the check box:
OnCheckedChanged="chkanswer_CheckChanged"

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

 
iandianCommented:
it sounds like you mean .checked=false instead of .enabled=false
.checked controls whether the checkbox is checked or not
.enabled control whether users can do something with the checkbox
if .enables=false the checkbox will remain in the same state it was (checked or unchecked) but the state can no longer be changed.

As pointed to by abdkhalif, place a breakpoint in your checkchanged event. Looks like you are using Ajax.

Is your DataList inside an updatepanel?

It's good that u found a workaround. Although it works, can u show us the triggers for the updatepanel that u have set, to check if we can find a solution...
