I have a SharePoint list that contain column 'District' with some data in it. It contains 4 value, District 1, District 2, District 3 and District 4.

I want to grab that value 'District' in the SharePoint list items and put it in my ASP Form as a checkbox to eventually make a filter on a Grid View.

If anyone can help me with grabbing the value of SharePoint List items and turning it into checkbox, would really appreciate it.

  • Is data type of your District is Choice?? or single lines of text? – Ganesh Sanap Dec 23 '19 at 7:06
  • It is a single line of text. – SPBoy Dec 23 '19 at 7:17

In case, the District is a single line of text, try the below code

using (SPSite site = new SPSite("SiteURL"))
     using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
       SPList list = web.Lists["ListName"];
       SPQuery query = new SPQuery();
       query.Query = "<View><ViewFields><FieldRef Name='District'/></ViewFields></View>"; 
       SPListItemCollection Items = list.GetItems(query);
      // Bind Checkbox List
       foreach (SPListItem Item in Items)
              CheckBoxListID.Items.Add(new ListItem(Item.Title));

In case, the District is your field is a choice field, Please check, Retrieve a SharePoint Choice Field Value Using Server Object Model C#

  • Thankyou for the answer but i got a little red line under the 'item' before the [District] in this line CheckBoxList1.Items.Add(new ListItem(item.["District)"]));, what should i replace it with? – SPBoy Dec 23 '19 at 8:01
  • Could you try this CheckBoxListID.Items.Add(item["District"]); or CheckBoxListID.Items.Add(new ListItem(Item.Title)); – Mohamed El-Qassas MVP Dec 23 '19 at 8:06
