The CheckBoxList is part of Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX, a professional grade UI library with 120+ components for building modern and feature-rich applications. To try it out sign up for a free 30-day trial.


You can easily style the control by changing the Skin property. This will eliminate the need to use the RadFormDecorator. Developers can easily migrate their applications from using the standard ASP.NET (CheckBoxList) controls to the RadCheckBoxList control, because most of the CheckBoxList's functionality is provided by the RadCheckBoxList control, and the RadCheckBoxList is controlled by the same or similar (intuitive) properties.

Example 1: A basic example of a RadCheckBoxList setup.

<telerik:RadCheckBoxList runat="server" ID="RadCheckBoxList1">
        <telerik:ButtonListItem Text="English" Selected="true" />
        <telerik:ButtonListItem Text="German" />
        <telerik:ButtonListItem Text="French" />

RadCheckBoxList does not support Classic render mode. Setting its RenderMode to Classic will default to the Lightweight render mode.
