Splitting Location of ASP:CheckBoxList

I have a asp:checkboxlist field in my web form.   I really need to have two of them with the same name in different parts of the form.  Is there a way to do that?    

<asp:CheckBoxList ID="cblDCP" runat="server" RepeatDirection="Horizontal" CssClass="hbuttons">
            <asp:ListItem Value="TPM" Text="Third-Party Management" />
        </asp:CheckBoxList>

Open in new window


Other HTML,
Other Form Items

<asp:CheckBoxList ID="cblDCP" runat="server" RepeatDirection="Horizontal" CssClass="hbuttons">
            <asp:ListItem Value="SM" Text="Second Management" />
        </asp:CheckBoxList>

HI  digitalwise,

You can't put more than one control with same name in different parts of the form inside a asp.net page (.aspx) .

But if you want to put to put the same control in side another control like "gridview" ,then it will allow to put with same name.

Example -1:

If you have a CheckBoxList  control having id "cblDCP" inside a asp.net page and if you want to add another CheckBoxList  control having same id "cblDCP" inside a gridview  then the .net  will allow it.

Example -2:
If you have a CheckBoxList  control having id "cblDCP" inside a asp.net page and if you want to add another CheckBoxList  control having same id "cblDCP" inside the same page then .net will not allow it.

Regards,
Tapan.
