Default Dynamic checkbox and radiobutton lists

I am using C#.NET and want to have dynamically created checkboxes and radio buttons. My database connection is hardcoded in (not using the .NET connection) and I want to retrieve information from the database, display it in either a checkbox list, or a radio button list, and allow users to check or click their choice. It is easy enough to set up either list, but I do not know how to populate them from a database. Any help or hints would be welcome.

Using a DataReader I found that you can use

while ( objReaderUser.Read() == true)
        ListItem cblEstI = new ListItem();
    cblEstI.Text = objReaderUser["market_desc"].ToString();
    cblEstI.Value = objReaderUser["market_id"].ToString();
    cblEst.Items.Add( cblEstI );
