ASP.NET Checkboxes

Posts: n/a
Thanx M, and I mean that, but I really need this to work
without a postback and frankly it should behave like the
other controls are behaving (correctly). This smells like
a bug to me and I just wanted to get some sort of
confirmation from the field or refutation with some sort
of an explaination. Can you reproduce the problem? I have
found a way around it for now by encasing the checkboxes
in an <asp:Table> then disabling/enabling the table
instead, which thankfully works. Thanx again M.
