VB.NET Selecting Items In CheckBoxList

P: 21

I have a form that is used to update user's profile. The user can have multiple roles that I'm trying to display using a CheckBoxList.

When initially selecting a user the code below works. If I select another user, the checkboxes in my form are not filled out (all are unselected). Additionally, if I update a user and then select another user, the checkboxes are filled correctly.

Below is the code I am using. Thanks in advance for your help. (GV= Gridview FV = Formview)

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim UNameStr As New Label
  3.         'Get username
  4.         UNameStr.Text = gvUser.SelectedRow.Cells(3).Text
  6.         'Get User's Roles
  7.         Dim userroles() As String = Roles.GetRolesForUser(UNameStr.Text)
  8.         Dim NewRoles As CheckBoxList
  10.         'Find CheckBoxList
  11.         NewRoles = DirectCast(fvUserEdit.FindControl("cbRoles"), CheckBoxList)
  13.         'Uncheck everything in the CheckBoxList
  14.         NewRoles.ClearSelection()
  16.         'Select Roles User Is In
  17.         For Each li As ListItem In NewRoles.Items
  18.             For indexA As Integer = 0 To userroles.Length - 1
  19.                 If li.Value.ToString = userroles(indexA).ToString Then
  20.                     'If the values match, set the checkbox to true
  21.                     li.Selected = True
  22.                 End If
  23.             Next
  24.         Next
