Hello, can anyone please help me here with this issue. I want to use DropDownCheckBoxes in my application, when I do a multiple selection, I am getting only the first selected value the remaining values are not appearing. Could you please help me on how I should store all the selected values in database? i don't know how I should store them in the database. The following is what I wrote from code behind.
chList= DropDownCeheckBoxesListControl1.SelectedItem.Text
Thank you.

Help with what? Store the data you want to store. Only the first value? The answer is: you screwed up. I don't know where, because, due to approaching New Year, my access to your hard drive through the chimney is somewhat limited... :-)

Don't use SelectedItem. You want to iterate through the items and find the ones selected.

As you are doing DropDownCheckBoxes, so you must be doing something to bind CheckBoxes to the DropDownList items.

So, if you code the following...
chList= DropDownCeheckBoxesListControl1.SelectedItem.Text

It will always return one item.

You need to loop through those CheckBoxes, which are appended to DropDownList items and check which one are checked. That will return you all the selected items.
