I have been at this for a week and still cant figure it  out. I have a listview with a checkbox column and another column with a price. When user checks a checkbox, i want to add the values and when they deselect...i want to decrement the value. I still cant get thos going...

If there are previous rows that user has checked and paid...i have those checkboxes disbaled so I dont add those rows

Each row is $50 (as an example)

Issue I have now is : I click a checkbox, code loops thru the rows and value is $50. This is correct. I check another checkbox...code loops and now the value is $150...this is because first check has the field as 50, then it loops and i have 2 checkboxes so that's 100 for total of 150...it should be 100 not 150

 <asp:CheckBox runat="server" AutoPostBack="true" OnCheckedChanged="onCheckChange_chkSelect"    ID="chkSelect" />

 if (!Page.IsPostBack)
        {
           x_amount.Text = "0";
       }

protected void onCheckChange_chkSelect(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
              //add and decrement total
        foreach (var provider in lvPayment.Items)
        {
            CheckBox providerChecked = (CheckBox)provider.FindControl("chkSelect");
            Label price = (Label)provider.FindControl("lblPrice");
            Label paid = (Label)provider.FindControl("lblSubsDate");
           //paid.text means this user hasnt paid and based on that...the checkbox is enabled
          //if checkbox is disabled, dont add that value to the amount
            if (providerChecked.Checked && paid.Text == string.Empty && providerChecked.Enabled)
                x_amount.Text = (int.Parse(x_amount.Text) + int.Parse(price.Text)).ToString();
            else
                if (!providerChecked.Checked && paid.Text == string.Empty)
                   x_amount.Text = (int.Parse(x_amount.Text) - int.Parse(price.Text)).ToString();


        }

    }

Maybe I'm missing something. What if you set x_amount.Text = "0"; on every postback then loop through, skip the test for "Enabled", skip the "else" and just add everything that is checked?
