Checkbox always return empty string!

Hi, I have the following checkbox
<input type="checkbox" value="chkterm" name="chkterm" id="chkterm"  style="BACKGROUND:#f4f4f4" onClick="EnableSubmit();" >

and I read it like the following:
Request.form("chkterm")
But it always returns an empty string even if the checkbox is checked!

Any suggestion?

Let's say you always wanted it to be checked, then it would look something like this
<input name="chkterm" type="checkbox" id="chkterm"  style="BACKGROUND:#f4f4f4" onClick="EnableSubmit();" value="chkterm" checked="checked" >

Open in new window


So to dynamically make it work you can do a couple options like....


 Option 1
<%
dim strChkterm
if Request.form("chkterm")=<>"" then
       strChkterm=Request.form("chkterm")
end if
%>


<input type="checkbox" value="chkterm" name="chkterm" id="chkterm" <%If strChkterm = "chkterm" Then Response.Write("checked=""checked""") else Response.Write("") end if%>  style="BACKGROUND:#f4f4f4" onClick="EnableSubmit();" >

Open in new window


Option 2
<input type="checkbox" value="chkterm" name="chkterm" id="chkterm" <%If Request.form("chkterm") = "chkterm" Then Response.Write("checked=""checked""") else Response.Write("") end if%>  style="BACKGROUND:#f4f4f4" onClick="EnableSubmit();" >

Open in new window

Try changing the name to something else (say chkbox) to differentiate it from the value and try again.

How is the <form> tag set up? Is the method=post?
