product
productid desc.    cost
1               pc        100
2               laptop  200
3               tablet   300

recordtran.
id cost
1  100
2  200


I already have datalist to read product table and now using checkbox within the datalist
If the checkbox is checked, I want to insert a row into the table (recordtable)
if the checkbox is not checked, do nothing

Can you show me how to code in aspx/c# code behind?

Thanks

Hi,

Assuming that you are inserting products into the database, you would have this markup (replace with yours)

    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
Hobbies:
<asp:CheckBoxList ID="chkProducts" runat="server">
</asp:CheckBoxList>
<br />
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" onclick="Button1_Click" Text="Insert" />
    </div>
    </form>

Open in new window


Then codebehind

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

    {

        String str = "";

        for (int i = 0; i <= chkProducts.Items.Count - 1; i++)

        {




            if (chkProducts.Items[i].Selected)

            {




                if (str == "")

                {

                    str = chkProducts.Items[i].Text;

                }

                else

                {

                    str += "," + chkProducts.Items[i].Text;




                }




            }

        }

        con.Open();

        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Insert into YourTable(Products) values('" + str + "')", con);

        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

        Clear();

    }

    public void Clear()

    {

        chkProducts.SelectedIndex = -1;

    }

Open in new window



Not tested but the concept is solid

I can't test it for you because you have other pieces of the code.

You need to integrate with your code and test.

Then if you have any issues, post back.
