I have an asp checkboxlist with items bound from database. It has items in the following manner.


When any checkbox with 'DNPR' is checked, all other checkboxes should be unchecked and disabled.

I have to implement it using javascript.

For that, I want to get the checked/unchecked state and the id of the checked/unchecked checkbox when clicking a checkbox in checkboxlist.

I tried using the onclick javascript event to achieve this. But checked=false in the onclick event evenif I checked a checkbox.

In which javascript event, I get the state of the checkbox I checked/unchecked.

Please help.

Why are you using a checkbox for this? This is what radio buttons were invented for...

This is not the same behavior. OP needs to uncheck and disable all buttons when one is checked. It could be a combination of one check box and some radio buttons, but OP uses check box list, not individual checkable controls. Of course, most likely rethinking of the UI is required, instead of implementing this behavior. However, we cannot be sure. That's why OP should start with description of the data model for the data being edited with the UI.

in click event it will work....

function myfn() {
            var dlist = document.getElementById("CheckBoxList1");
            var count = dlist.cells.length;
            for (var i = 0; i < count; i++) {
                var cId = "CheckBoxList1_" + i;
//cId is the dynamic id created for checkboxes in the list
                var cbox = document.getElementById(cId);
                if (cbox.checked == true) {

<asp:CheckBoxList ID="CheckBoxList1" runat="server"

this is working for me..
