Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

Use the CheckBox control to allow the user to select a true or false state.

If you plan to use multiple CheckBox controls, the CheckBoxList control is an alternative control that provides convenient data binding capabilities. However, individual CheckBox controls provide greater control over layout.

CAUTION   This control can be used to display user input, which might include malicious client script. Check any information that is sent from a client for executable script, SQL statements, or other code before displaying it in your application. ASP.NET provides an input request validation feature to block script and HTML in user input. Validation server controls are also provided to assess user input. For more information, see Validation Server Controls.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example demonstrates how to use a CheckBox control to indicate whether tax is included in the calculation for a sales total.

<head>
 
   <script runat="server">
 
      Sub Check_Clicked(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) 

         ' Calculate the subtotal and display the result in currency format.
         ' Include tax if the check box is selected.
         Message.Text = CalculateTotal(checkbox1.Checked).ToString("c")

      End Sub

      Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)

         ' Display the subtotal without tax when the page is first loaded.
         If Not IsPostBack Then

            ' Calculate the subtotal and display the result in currency format.
            Message.Text = CalculateTotal(false).ToString("c")

         End If

      End Sub

      Function CalculateTotal(Taxable As Boolean) As Double 

         ' Calculate the subtotal for the example.
         Dim Result As Double = 1.99 + 2.99 + 3.99

         ' Add tax, if applicable.
         If(Taxable)

            Result += Result * 0.086
         
         End If

         Return Result 

      End Function
