I have a details view with a textbox control bound to a text field in my database. The text field holds a 3-character code. For user convenience, I have elected to have a checkbox represent a letter (ie: checkbox1 = "C", checkbox2 = "R", etc.) Problem is that the checkboxes are in the edit and insert templates, so I don't know how to reference them; they are simple unbound checkboxes (code behind doesn't see them). any help appreciated.
