I want to put one of my functions in a class.  However, I am not sure on how to pass checkbox value?


public function UpdateData(byval id as interger, byval chkbAmount as ????) as Boolean      
dim TF as boolean = false
Using con As New SqlConnection(WebConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("myConnectionString").ToString)
                con.Open()
                Using comnd As New SqlCommand("mysp", con)
                    comnd.CommandType = Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure
                    comnd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@id", id)
                    comnd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@accountnumber", txtaccountnumber)
             
                    If chkbAmount.Checked = True Then                                <<<<< this line
                        comnd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@noupdate", "Y")
                    Else
                        comnd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@noupdate", "")
                    End If
                    comnd.ExecuteNonQuery()
                  tf = true
                 
                End Using
            End Using
return tf

Why not just set the parameter type to be Boolean, and then pass the chkbAmount.Checked value to the function call?

Change

public function UpdateData(byval id as interger, byval chkbAmount as ????) as Boolean  

to

public function UpdateData(byval id as interger, byval chkbAmount as Boolean) as Boolean  


Then pass it chkbAmount.Checked

Check its .Checked property. Is it on page or within some other container control such as grid?

It is on a form. Like this?
dim Update_test as new ClassUpdate
dim test as boolean = update_test.UpdateData(id, chkbAmount.checked) ???

Not like this?

dim chkb_tmp as boolean = false
if chkbAmount.checked then
   chkb_tmp = true
end
dim Update_test as new ClassUpdate
dim test as boolean = update_test.UpdateData(id, chkb_tmp) ???


dim test as boolean = update_test.UpdateData(id, chkbAmount.checked) <<< I would not know in advace if chkbAmount is checked

Have you tried anything yet?

chkbAmount.Checked will tell you whether its checked or not. You don't have to know that.
