How to: Add CheckBox Web Server Controls to a Web Forms Page

You can add a check box to a Web Forms page in two ways:

  • By adding an individual CheckBox Web server control.

  • By adding a CheckBoxList Web server control and then adding individual list items to the control.


    This topic addresses how to add individual CheckBox controls to the page. For information about adding items to a CheckBoxList control, see How to: Add Items in List Web Server Controls.
