CheckBoxList.CellPadding Property

Gets or sets the distance (in pixels) between the border and contents of the cell.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public virtual int CellPadding { get; set; }
<asp:CheckBoxList CellPadding="Int32" />

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The distance (in pixels) between the border and contents of the cell. The default is -1, which indicates this property is not set.

Use this property to control the spacing between the contents of a cell and the cell's border in the CheckBoxList control.

The padding amount specified is added to all four sides of a cell with the height of the tallest cell and width of the widest cell in the CheckBoxList control. The resulting cell size is applied uniformly to all cells in the CheckBoxList control.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the CellPadding property to specify that the cell padding for the CheckBoxList control is 5 pixels.

NoteNote

The following code samples use the single-file code model and may not work correctly if copied directly into a code-behind file. Each code sample must be copied into an empty text file that has an .aspx extension. For more information on the Web Forms code model, see ASP.NET Web Page Code Model.
