Help with using GridView with checkboxes using XML data souce

Hello,

I included a checkbox in my GridView control to select rows with the code below. However, when I execute the code in Part A, after I select a checkbox, the chk.Checked = True  command doesn’t execute and I end up with blank values for countries.  How do I set the datasource to the Gridview in the server side. I was able to do this when using an ACCESS databse but can’t figure out how to use the xml file as a datasource. The working code with the ACCESS database is in Part C:

Part A: Code to select values in Gridwiew in .aspxvb file

Protected Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
        Dim countries As String = ""
        For Each row As GridViewRow In GridView1.Rows
            Dim chk As CheckBox = CType(row.FindControl("CheckBox1"), CheckBox)
            If chk.Checked = True Then
                countries += "'" & row.Cells(2).Text & "',"
            End If
        Next

        MsgBox(countries)
    End Sub

Part B: Code to create the Grid with check boxes in .aspx file
<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server"
            AllowSorting="True">
            <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#CCFF99" />
            <Columns>
             <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Select" >
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <asp:Checkbox ID="Checkbox1" runat="server" Text=""  />
                    </ItemTemplate>
                    </asp:TemplateField>
            </Columns>
        </asp:GridView>

Part C: code to load Grid with ACCESS and checkbox
<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
            DataSourceID="SqlDataSource" Width="739px" AllowPaging="True"
            AllowSorting="True">
            <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#CCFF99" />
            <Columns>
             <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Select" >
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <asp:CheckBox ID="CheckBox1" runat="server" Text=""  />
                    </ItemTemplate>
                    </asp:TemplateField>
                <asp:BoundField DataField="COUNTRY" HeaderText="COUNTRY"
                    SortExpression="COUNTRY" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="AGD4" HeaderText="AGD4" SortExpression="AGD4" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="FIF" HeaderText="FIF" SortExpression="FIF" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="NSN" HeaderText="NSN" SortExpression="NSN" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="NAS" HeaderText="NAS" SortExpression="NAS" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="SN" HeaderText="SN" SortExpression="SN" />
            </Columns>
        </asp:GridView>

Instead of boundfield for country, place a label to display country text in template field and then
Find country label control like you are finding check box, get country name from label text...............

I'm sorry I don't follow your explanation. I am not using the code with Boundfield in Part C. I am using the codes in Parts A and B. Can you please send me an example.

Thanks,

Victor

Change PART C Code like below:

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
            DataSourceID="SqlDataSource" Width="739px" AllowPaging="True"
            AllowSorting="True">
            <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#CCFF99" />
            <Columns>
             <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Select" >
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <asp:CheckBox ID="CheckBox1" runat="server" Text=""  />
                    </ItemTemplate>
                    </asp:TemplateField>
      <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Select" >
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("COUNTRY")%>'  />
                    </ItemTemplate>
                    </asp:TemplateField>
             
                <asp:BoundField DataField="AGD4" HeaderText="AGD4" SortExpression="AGD4" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="FIF" HeaderText="FIF" SortExpression="FIF" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="NSN" HeaderText="NSN" SortExpression="NSN" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="NAS" HeaderText="NAS" SortExpression="NAS" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="SN" HeaderText="SN" SortExpression="SN" />
            </Columns>
        </asp:GridView>

Change PART A CODE like below:

Protected Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
        Dim countries As String = ""
        For Each row As GridViewRow In GridView1.Rows
            Dim chk As CheckBox = CType(row.FindControl("CheckBox1"), CheckBox)
Dim lblCountry As Label = CType(row.FindControl("Label1"), Label
            If chk.Checked = True Then
                countries += "'" & lblCountry.Text & "',"
            End If
        Next

        MsgBox(countries)
    End Sub
