Hello Experts. I have a popup Asp.net web form with Check boxes on it. I am using Java Script. Basically if someone checks one of the check boxes, I need to disable the other remaining check boxes. If someone then Un-Checks the chosen check box, I need to re-enable all of the check boxes again. I figured out how to disable the remaining check boxes after the first one is checked. But how do I re enable all of the other check boxes again? Below is my Java Script method I am using. Attached is the full Asp.net web form which uses the Java Script.

For some reason I am not able to paste the Java Script in Here. Please

see see that attached Java script method named WhichOneChecked

not really something to fix your code but you can start by
replacing : boolean allUnchecked=false;
with : var allUnchecked = false;

Yeah, but I still do not have a solution to the problem? I need to know how to re-enable the check boxes. So your answer didn't help me.

at the onchange event of a checkbox, you need to check if this one is unchecked or not. If it is unchecked, then reenable all checkboxes like this

function enableAll()
{
             var grid = document.getElementById("<%= GridView1.ClientID%>");
             var inputs = grid.getElementsByTagName("input");
             for (var counter = 0; counter < inputs.length; counter++)
            {
                 if (inputs[counter].type.toLowerCase() == "checkbox" )
                 {
                     inputs[counter].disabled = false;
                 }
             }
}

Hi,

Replace your function with the below code. and pass "this" in the onClick event.. like

<asp:Checkbox id="checkboxMember" onclick="WhichOneChecked(this)" runat="server" visible="true" />
 
function WhichOneChecked(ele){
    var strToDisplay ='';
    var inputs = document.getElementById('checkDiv').getElementsByTagName('input');
    if(ele.checked) {
    for(var i=0; i<inputs.length; i++) {
        if (inputs[i].type.toLowerCase() == "checkbox" && inputs[i].checked) 
            strToDisplay += "Checkbox index=" + i + " \n"; 
        else { 
            inputs[i].disabled = true; 
        } 
    }
    
    } else {
    for(var i=0; i<inputs.length; i++) {
        if (inputs[i].type.toLowerCase() == "checkbox") {
            inputs[i].disabled = false; 
        } 
    }
    
    }
}
