My Code:
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
             function GetTextValue() {
  var checkList = document.getElementById('CheckBoxList1');
                     var checkBoxList = checkList.getElementsByTagName("input");
                     var checkBoxSelectedItems = new Array();
                     var values = "";
                     var i = 0;
                     for (i = 0; i < checkBoxList.length; i++) {
                         if (checkBoxList[i].checked) {
                             values = values + checkBoxList[i].value + ",";
                             alert('checked - checkBoxList[i]: ' + checkBoxList[i].value)
                     var category = values;

For example if i select three check box then it shows like this "on, on, on"
