I have this SQL query:

SELECT PAYRCORD, DSCRIPTN FROM UPR40600 ORDER BY PAYRCORD

On my user form I want a checkbox list that will show:

Checkbox      PAYRCORD       DSCRIPTN

What is the code necessary to populate the checkbox list like this from the SQL table in the query?

Is this windows forms or web as the approach is different as a checkboxlist is a web control, there is not a windows forms equivalent so we have to create our own user control.

OK, well as I said the checkboxlist is only for Web,

You can either use a set of standard check boxes that are added dynamically to a frame with the text of the combo box being made up from your data, or you can create a new user control that has a check box and a text box to allow you to nicely format the data into two apparent columns.

I'm presuming that you know how to create the query and loop through the records.

Which way do you want to go?

I'm a bit confused.  I'm using Visual Studio 2010 and I created the project as a vb.net Windows Form project.  CheckedListBox is one of the available forms, which I have dragged onto my form.

My preference is your second scenario, though I need three columns, one for the check box and one for each of the fields in the SQL query - PAYRCORD and DSCRIPTN.  I can make the SQL connection and execute the query, but do I use a datareader to loop through the results of the query or table fill, or what?

Accepted answer: 0 points for thoecherl's comment #a39220409

for the following reason:

I got it to work using this:

        Dim str As String = "Data Source = T-PC;Initial Catalog = TWO;Persist Security Info= True;User ID=sa;Password=123!"
        Dim con As New SqlConnection(str)
        Dim cmd As String = "SELECT RTRIM(PAYRCORD) AS PAYCODE, RTRIM(DSCRIPTN) AS DESCRIPTION FROM UPR40600 ORDER BY PAYRCORD"
        Dim adpt As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd, con)
        Dim myDataSet As New DataSet()
        adpt.Fill(myDataSet, "UPR40600")
        Dim myDataTable As DataTable = myDataSet.Tables(0)
        Dim tempRow As DataRow
        For Each tempRow In myDataTable.Rows
            'ListBox1.Items.Add((tempRow("ControlNo") & " (" & tempRow("EmpNo") & ")" & " (" & tempRow("CheckOutDate") & ")" & " (" & tempRow("CheckOutTime") & ")" & " (" & tempRow("TaxiNo") & ")" & " (" & tempRow("PlateNo") & ")" & " (" & tempRow("Model") & ")" & " (" & tempRow("Make") & ")"))
            'ListBox1.Items.Add((tempRow("ControlNo") & " (" & tempRow("EmpNo") & ")"))
            chkPayCodes.Items.Add(tempRow("PAYCODE") & "            " & tempRow("DESCRIPTION"))
        Next

Thanks

I was going to use the text part of the check box for one column, then a text box for the other.

I see the confusion now, There are two controls, checkedlistbox (WF) and CheckBoxList (Web)

I misread your original post and searched for the wrong one.....

Can you post your code for executing the query and then I can tell you what to do next

I accepted my comment as the solution, rather than the contributor's solution, by mistake.  I would like to fix that

In this case, I see no problem in doing what you did. I didn't actually give you a solution, although I may have helped you in finding it yourself
