Hello Experts,

I have a CheckBoxList control that retrieves data from my DB (works fine). But I need to make sure a user selects at least one value from the CheckBoxList before he/she can submit the form. If he/she does not select at least one value then I want to display a message saying "Please select at least one value".

Thanks in advance!!!

you can use a customvalidator and then check onservervalidate event. Below is an example

Is it something like this you are looking for?
bool itemSelected = false;
            foreach (ListItem item in chk1.Items)
            {
                if (item.Selected)
                {
                    itemSelected = true;
                    break;
                }
            }
            if (!itemSelected)
            {
                // Write code for alert message here
            }
