Hi

In ASP.net 4 I want to query a table so that the results are shown in a GridView that has an extra checkbox column so that the user can choose the items relevant to them. How do i achieve this?

Thanks

Alternative way to do this is through the GUI;
Click on the gridview tasks extender, select Edit Columns
Select Template Field at the bottom of the Available Fields list and hit the Add button
Name the column and set any properties you want, click OK
Click on the tasks extender again, Edit Templates, and you should see the column you just added, drag a checkbox into the template area, click the extender, and End Template Editing, and you're done.

If you're using VB in the code behind, you'll need to findcontrol the checkbox in the selected row
e.g.
If CType(gvwRecipients.SelectedRow.FindControl("chkIsMember"), CheckBox).Checked = True Then...
(or if iterating through all rows in the grid
If CType(gvwRecipients.Rows(idx).FindControl("chkIsMember"), CheckBox).Checked = True
)

A colleague has done this in C# and said you don't need the findcontrol
