Checkbox returning “true,false” from FormCollection.

If you try Request.Form[“checkbox0”], you’ll get the value “true,false” .

Just check this:

form[key].Contains("true"); //some said chrome returns "on"

Or

You could simplify your code doing this:

var strArray = collection["YourCheckboxName"];
char[] delimiterChars = {‘,’};
string[] checkedvalue = strArray.Split(delimiterChars);
var returnValue = checkedValue.Length > 1;

If the checkbox is checked, then the array will contain 2 values, if not, only one.
