Filtering Gridview with CheckboxList RRS feed

  • Question

  • Filtering asp.net gridview using checkbox list.

    I am having trouble putting all of the peices together.  I have an asp.net dropdownlist, checkbox list, and a gridview on my page.  It was previously 2 dropdown lists and the gridview.  What I want do to is let the users select via checkboxes the items they want to show in the gridview.

    CheckBoxList1 is the organization type
    CheckBoxList2 is the contact type
    Gridview1 shows the details about the person

    I am having trouble passing the values of the checkboxes to the sql stored procedure, and/or getting the stored procedure to accept the parameters.  Below is my code.  Any help would be apprecitated.
