CheckBox.AutoPostBack Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the CheckBox state automatically posts back to the server when clicked.

[Visual Basic]
Public Overridable Property AutoPostBack As Boolean
[C#]
public virtual bool AutoPostBack {get; set;}
[C++]
public: __property virtual bool get_AutoPostBack();
public: __property virtual void set_AutoPostBack(bool);
[JScript]
public function get AutoPostBack() : Boolean;
public function set AutoPostBack(Boolean);

Property Value

true to automatically post the state of the CheckBox control to the server when it is clicked; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Remarks

Use this property to specify whether the state of the CheckBox control is posted back to the server when clicked.

Note   Setting this property to true causes a round trip to the server every time the control is clicked.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example demonstrates how to use the AutoPostBack property to automatically post the state of the CheckBox control to the server when the control is clicked.
