Thanks for your quick response...

But I am developing the application using asp.net 2008. In this version of VS no such control is available.

I still think Jquery is better option, it will work for any version of VS.

A drop-down list control allowing checkboxes and multiple selections goes against what a drop-down list control is for: Single selection from multiple options.

What you are looking for is a listbox with checkboxes, which is what the Checkboxlist control is.

The CheckBoxList control has been part of the .NET Framework since version 1.1. The following link comes straight from Microsoft and provides information about the control in Visual Studio 2008: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/2tkec5c4(v=vs.90).aspx.
