Solution 1

There are two ways to achieve your functionality.

1. You can build your model with string property and add <input type="checkbox"></input> controls with html stuff you need and then render it from model in view.
public class checkboxes
  public string checks{get; set;}

Then you need pass this model from controller to view and access it like following.
<%: Model.checkboxes %>

In that way it will render as many as checkboxes as you want.

2. Second method is related to first but with some difference. In this method you need to pass model with only some parameters of checkboxes not the html code. And from those parameters we are building checkbox control on the view.

public class checkboxes
  public List<string> checksname{get; set;}

Then in view you just loop through names and create checkboxes.
<% foreach(string checkname in Model.checkboxes)
{ %>
<%: Html.CheckBox(checkname, false) %>
<% } %>

in the view add:
<input style="margin: 0px;padding: 0px;width: 15px;height: 15px; border: 0px; background: none;" type="checkbox" name="RememberMe" id="RememberMe" value="true" />

and in the controller you can get the vale of checkbox as:
public ActionResult LogOn(bool? rememberMe)
                bool remember = Convert.ToBoolean(rememberMe);

and now the bool type variable you can save in database , for this create a column of type bit

ooh so if i have to save the data of that checkbox(means here "RememberMe") in database.. then i have to save the name property(name="RememberMe") of the checkbox?
member60 15-Mar-12 7:07am
i have given the name for that checkbox as RememberMe if you want you can change and save
direction.d 15-Mar-12 7:15am
okey :) one more question..
i don't wants to save the true or false.. but i wants to save the data of that checkbox which are checked=true..
in your eg. if checkbox of "RememberMe" is checked=true/selected then i wants to save the data "RememberMe" in database..??

for retrieving the data true or false at runtime in controller it is neccessary to set it to true first in view. try it first and then reply me.
runtime if you select the checkbox it returns true otherwise false , but the thing is that first set it to true, it is my personal experience know.

Add column (like checked) to your database table.
Take data type of that field as "Bit".
if checkbox is cheked then pass "True"
if unchecked pass "False"
