Creating CheckBox List In ASP.NET MVC

In this article, we will learn how to create strongly typed checkbox list in ASP.NET MVC application, let's learn step by step about it.

Step 1 : Create an ASP.NET  MVC Application.

Now let's start with a step by step approach from the creation of simple ASP.NET MVC application as in the following:
  1. "Start", then "All Programs" and select "Microsoft Visual Studio 2015".
  2. "File", then "New" and click "Project..." then select "ASP.NET Web Application Template", then provide the Project a name as you wish and click on OK . 

Step 2 : Add Model class

Right click on model folder of created MVC application project and add  class named CheckBoxModel.cs.

public class CheckBoxModel
        public int Value { get; set; }
        public string Text { get; set; }
        public bool IsChecked { get; set; }
    public class CheckBoxList
        public List<CheckBoxModel> CheckBoxItems { get; set; }

Step 3 : Add Controller

Right click on Controllers folder of created MVC application and add Controller named HomeController.cs.

public class HomeController : Controller
        // GET: Home
        public ActionResult Index()
            //Creating object of CheckBoxList model class
            CheckBoxList ChkItems = new CheckBoxList();
            //Additng items to the list
            List<CheckBoxModel> ChkItem = new List<CheckBoxModel>()
              new CheckBoxModel {Value=1,Text="ASP.NET",IsChecked=true },
              new CheckBoxModel {Value=1,Text="C#",IsChecked=false },
              new CheckBoxModel {Value=1,Text="MVC",IsChecked=false },
              new CheckBoxModel {Value=1,Text="Web API" ,IsChecked=false},
              new CheckBoxModel {Value=1,Text="SignalR",IsChecked=false },
              new CheckBoxModel {Value=1,Text="SQL" ,IsChecked=false},
            //assigning records to the CheckBoxItems list 
            ChkItems.CheckBoxItems = ChkItem;
            return View(ChkItems);


 Step 4: Add View

Right click on View folder of created MVC application project and add empty view named Index.cshtml. Now open the Index.cshtml view and write the following code into the view
@model BindCheckBoxListInMVC.Models.CheckBoxList
    ViewBag.Title = "";
<div class="form-horizontal">
    <h4>Select your favourite Subjects</h4>
        @foreach (var item in Model.CheckBoxItems)
            <input id="chk@(item.Value)"
                   checked="@item.IsChecked" />
                @item.Text <br />
Now everything is ready ,run the application then the check box list will be look like as follows.

From all above example we have learned how to create strongly typed checkbox list in ASP.NET MVC.
