MailMessage with CheckBoxList Values

P: n/a
Hi,
I am having a small problem generating an e-mail via an online form. I
am creating an e-mail using the MailMessage command and I know that you
have to do something special to render the values Checked with a
CheckBoxList, but I don't know what to do or how to do it. If anyone
could give me an example or send me to a link I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

You can render mail content with html element.such as,

<form method="POST" action="url">
<input type="hidden" name="topic" value="">
<font class=s10>Question?
<br><input type="radio" name="choice" value="0">answer1
<br><input type="radio" name="choice" value="1">answer2
<br><input type="radio" name="choice" value="2">answer3
<br><center><input type="submit" value="vote"></center>
</font></form>

Sorry, I don't think your suggestion is quite what I am looking for, or
maybe I just don't understand. This is my code so far:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" ContentType="text/html"
ResponseEncoding="iso-8859-1" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.Mail" %>
<script runat="server">
private void SubmitForm(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
// create mail message object
MailMessage Message = new MailMessage();
// set some properties
Message.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Text;
Message.Priority = MailPriority.High;
// create the e-mail
Message.From = "(email omited)";
Message.To = "(email omited)";
Message.Subject = "Online Fleet Quote";
Message.Body = "Contact Information" +
"\nFirst Name:" +txtFirstName.Text +
"\nLast Name:" +txtLastName.Text +
"\nCompany:" +txtCompany.Text +
"\nAddress:" +txtAddress.Text +
"\nCity:" +txtCity.Text +
"\nState:" +ddlStates.SelectedValue +
"\nZip Code:" +txtZipCode.Text +
"\nCountry:" +ddlCountry.SelectedValue +
"\n" +
SmtpMail.Send(Message);

I can't figure out how to include values for the CheckboxList in the
generated e-mail. I tried +cblServices.SelectedValue+ but it only
returns that first value selected and not all of them. If anyone can
help me out here I would appreciate it.

Thanks.

en.. check CheckboxList Items property, you will get all values.

May be like this?

for (int i=0; i < Check1.Items.Count; i++)
{
if ( Check1.Items[i].Selected )
{
s = s + Check1.Items[i].Text + "<br>";
}
}
