Default Getting value of Dynamic Check boxes

Hi ya!

I hope someone can help me, i am creating an asp site and the problem is on one of my pages I have a dynamic table with info displayed and at the end of each row there is check box.

The value of the check box i have given the value of a field from the recoreset (The ID number),but now what i need to do is once one of the check boxes has been checked, i want to be able to get that ID number from the check box and pass it into the next page via the form..
I have tried several ways with no avail... its probably simple bt i have never cam across it before.....

Any help in the matter would be fab! Cheers ;)

When you are rendering your page, fill in the value for each checkbox... as in the following example:

<form etc, etc...>
<input type="checkbox" name="your_checkbox_name" value="<%=rs.fields("ID")%>">
' ...

Now, I assume that you have more than one checkbox on your form...

When you post the form, Request("your_checkbox_name") will contain a comma delimited string of all of the values (IDs) that have been checked. If no checkboxes have been checked then Request("your_checkbox_name") will be an empty string.

You can parse the IDs using:

For Each ID_Value IN Split(Request("your_checkbox_name"),","))
  ' do something with each ID_Value here
  ' I like to use Trim(ID_Value) here to remove any leading or
  ' trailing space characters

Hope that helps...

Hi, thanks fro your help so soon, I have tried the code you suggested this morning, however I am getting an error message of "object required"

Here's the code for th dynamic table (only 1 tick box will be chosen from however many is on the page (as its a dynamic number of check boxes depending on the number of records in the database))

<% if (not adoRS.BOF) and (not adoRS.EOF) then %>

<P align=center><STRONG>Select Relevant
<P align=center><STRONG></STRONG></P>

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 532px; HEIGHT: 59px" border=1 align="center">

  <TR class=TableHeaderGrey>
    <TH width=50 align=middle><B>ID</B></TH>
    <TH width=450 align=middle ><B>Program Name</B></TH>
    <TH width=50 align=middle>Select</TH>

    Do While Not (adoRS.EOF)

    <TR class="<%=GetTableRowColor%>">
    <TD align=middle><%=adoRS.Fields(0).Value%></TD>

 <% gets data from database via VB DLL
  'get Program Description
  set objProject1 = Server.CreateObject("Project1.Class1")
  strProgramName = objProject1.GetProgramName(adoRS.Fields(0).Value)
  set objProject1 = nothing


    <TD align=middle><%=strProgramName%></TD>

Here are the dynamic check boxes:
    <TD align=middle><input id=chkProgram name="<%=adoRS.Fields(0).Value%>" type=checkbox onClick="DoCheckClick(this);"></TD>





Maybe it applied your changes incorrectly... I thought i would have to implement some java script to pass the check box value into the form.....

Cheers very much for your help in advance! Kathryne

I don't know what sort of values the recordset contains but you might be better modifying ther name of the checkbox:
><input id=chkProgram name="chk<%=adoRS.Fields(0).Value%>" type=checkbox onClick="DoCheckClick(this);">
Is "object expected" a server side error or client side? If client side it's probably because DoCheckClick is not available.
