use check box list to add 10 checkboxes dynamically,
then use this code to find the checkbox which is selected..
foreach(ListItem item in CheckBoxList1.Items)
            if (item.Selected)
                //Do any action
if you create checkboxes it is hard to find which is selected instead of checkboxlist....

This is how i am populating a checkboxlist from a table
i ll first establish a connection and get the values from the tables form the database..and populate the checkboxlist..
CheckBoxList CHK = new CheckBoxList();
                CHK.ID = "CHK" + currentQuestion.SurveyQuestionId;
                CHK.DataSource = currentQuestion.LookupValues;
                CHK.DataTextField = "LookUpValue";
                CHK.DataValueField = "SurveyLookUpId";
                CHK.RepeatDirection = RepeatDirection.Horizontal;                
                CHK.BorderWidth = 0;
                //CHK.RepeatColumns = currentQuestion.LookupValues.Count;
                //CHK.RepeatLayout = RepeatLayout.Flow;
                CHK.RepeatColumns = 1;
                CHK.CssClass = "dCheckBox";
