Hi EE,
I have CheckBoxList on aspx page and adding items from code behind page.
in the following code, how can I set "ID" for value and "Text" for item text to display.

[.aspx]
 <asp:CheckBoxList ID="SectorList" runat="server">
 </asp:CheckBoxList>

[.cs]
while (reader.Read())
 {
string ID = reader["ID"].ToString();
string Text = reader["Text"].ToString();
SectorList.Items.Add(Text);
}


eg.
   <asp:CheckBoxList ID="SectorList" runat="server">
                    <asp:ListItem Value="1">apple</asp:ListItem>
                    <asp:ListItem Value="2">orange</asp:ListItem>
   </asp:CheckBoxList>

you can also do it this way instead of looping.
SectorList.DataValueField = "ID";
SectorList.DataTextField = "Text";
SectorList.DataSource = reader;
SectorList.DataBind();
