Use the HtmlInputCheckBox control to allow the user to select a true or false state. To determine whether the control is selected, use the Checked property. The HtmlInputCheckBox control provides a ServerChange event that is raised when the Checked property changes values between posts to the server. This allows you to create an event handler that performs a custom set of instructions each time the event is raised.


The HtmlInputCheckBox control does not post back to the server when it is clicked. You must provide another control on the Web page that supports posting to the server, such as an HtmlButton control, to send the state of the control back to the server.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of HtmlInputCheckBox, see the HtmlInputCheckBox constructor.

The following code example demonstrates a set of simple responses to users selecting from a group of HtmlInputCheckBox controls.

<%@ Page Language="JScript" AutoEventWireup="True" %>

    <script language="JSCRIPT" runat=server>
       function SubmitBtn_Click (source : Object, e : EventArgs){
           if(Basketball.Checked == true){
               // You like basketball
           if(Football.Checked == true){
               // You like football
           if(Soccer.Checked == true){
               // You like soccer
       <form method=post runat=server>
         Enter Interests:  
         <input id="Basketball" checked type=checkbox runat=server> Basketball
         <input id="Football" type=checkbox runat=server> Football
         <input id="Soccer" type=checkbox runat="server"> Soccer
