You might try a variation of the code below.
Basically as each row is DataBound to your DataList, you do whatever you
must with the controls in your item template. In the code below there is a
button (btnDeleteThis) to which I'm adding an attribute. I suspect this
could be easily modified to find your CheckBox list. So, it may be as simply
as adjusting the following code. Sorry I'm under the gun on a project to
convert this to VB for you - but it should show you what needs to be done.

The first line creates a reference to the object (a button in my case, buta
CheckBoxList in your case) via FindControl.

If that first line worked (the object reference is not null), then you can
proceed to databind your CheckBoxlist (inside the IF structure).
private void MyDataList_Item DataBound(objec t sender,
System.Web.UI.W ebControls.Data ListItemEventAr gs e) {
Button curButton = (Button)e.Item. FindControl("bt nDeleteThis");
if (curButton != null) {
curButton.Attri butes.Add("oncl ick", "return confirm('Delete This?');");

Thx Jeremy but i fixed that earlier using ItemBound.
But i still have one more issue since the CheckBoxList is Databinded i
would like to get the selected item but when i looped through it isn't
returning it.What i mean is that want to get a Boolean value TRUE or
FALSE when the CheckBoxlist is selected.
Any trick for this

I have a Datalist control on my page that I have binded to a table of available categories. In the Item Template I have a CheckboxList control bound to the products available in each Category. I need to pull out of the page which products the user has selected. I have bound the products to the CheckboxList control in the ItemDataBound event for the Datalist. How can I extract what checkboxes have been selected inside the Datalist?
