I am trying to get the hiddenfield value in a datalist. However, this is the result:

System.Web.UI.WebControls.HiddenField

        <asp:DataList ID="dataList" RepeatDirection="Horizontal" runat="server">
            <ItemTemplate>
                <asp:CheckBox ID="dataChkbox" AutoPostBack="true" OnCheckedChanged="dataChkbox_CheckedChanged" runat="server" />
                <asp:HiddenField ID="dataPath" Value='<%#Eval("dataValue")%>' runat="server" />
            </ItemTemplate>
        </asp:DataList>

        protected void dataChkbox_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            var chk = (CheckBox)sender;
            if (chk.Checked)
            {
                var item = (DataListItem)chk.NamingContainer;
                var dataPathVal = (HiddenField)item.FindControl("dataPath");
		label1.text = dataPathVal.ToString(); 
	    }
        }

Hi,

You have to use the dataPathVal.Value as below.

protected void dataChkbox_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            var chk = (CheckBox)sender;
            if (chk.Checked)
            {
                var item = (DataListItem)chk.NamingContainer;
                var dataPathVal = (HiddenField)item.FindControl("dataPath");
               label1.text = dataPathVal.Value;
            }
        }
