Hi, this is my ASPX Page
<asp:Repeater runat="server" ID="rptChilds">
        <asp:CheckBox ID="chkc" runat="server" Text="" />
    <br />

i want to check that wich of the checkboxes check, for example by code as this
for (j = 0; j < NumberOfCheckboxes; j++)
                    CheckBox chk = (CheckBox)(rptChilds).FindControl("chkc");
                    if (chk != null)
                        if (chk.Checked)
                            //do something here

and this is the result:
Server Error in '/Project' Application.

Try this:
foreach (RepeaterItem item in rptChilds.Items)
    if (item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
        CheckBox chk = (CheckBox)(rptChilds).FindControl("chkc");
        if (chk.Checked)
            //your code here
            //your code here
