Default Form element "memory" - for checkboxes


New to Vbscript - learning as I go.

I want to be able to give form elements "memory".

I have a form which people fill out and submit via CDOMail. I have simple validation on it, and so I want the form elements to retain the users' selections if they have not filled out the form correctly.

I can get this to work easily with text fields/areas and radio buttons using the following method:

<input type="radio" name="frequency" value="one"
        <%if frequency="one" then response.write("checked")%>>

This does not seem to work with checkboxes though. Does anyone have any ideas how you can make it work with checkboxes?

Checkboxes are only submitted if they are checked, so you can use something like this:
<input type="checkbox" name="your checkbox name"
<% If Not IsEmpty(Request.Form("your checkbox name")) Then Response.Write "checked" End If %>
