Hi
I am trying to get the Index of an Item checked in a dynamically added CheckBoxList. I use the following code and
myCheckBoxListName  and myNewValue work just fine but oIndex returns -1 every time

  Private Sub HandleCheckBoxListOnSelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

            Dim myCheckBoxListName As String
            Dim myNewValue As String
            Dim oIndex As Integer

            myNewValue = DirectCast(sender, CheckBoxList).SelectedValue
            oIndex = DirectCast(sender, CheckBoxList).SelectedIndex
            myCheckBoxListName = DirectCast(sender, CheckBoxList).ID
End Sub

Is it a multi select check listbox ?  (They don't use the SelectedIndex - that is just for single selection)

Hi. That doesn't work. It is a CheckBoxList not a ListBox

It is a CheckBoxList as I just said. This is automatically multi select

OK, that is why your SelectedIndex fails.

You will have to loop through the items and check each individually if it is selected to build up your collection of indexs.

ps.  re your attention request:
Hi

The tone of the person answering the question is not that polite. I think another expert should help or the question be deleted.

Thanks


What is impolite for asking you to answer a question you know the answer to, everyone else doesn't know the answer to and is critical to be able to explain why your code doesn't work?

I asked for the request to be ignored. I probably just interpreted your question differently to the way it was meant
