Bootstrap checkbox-inline and radio-inline with ASP.NET CheckBoxList and RadioButtonList controls

By · June 20, 2016 · 0 comments

Although you can easily create inline checkboxes and radio buttons using ASP.NET CheckBoxes and RadioButtons using Bootstrap's checkbox-inline and radio-inline classes, it's not so easy with ASP.NET CheckBoxList and RadioButtonList controls.

There's probably several ways of emulating the Bootstrap inline styling using these ASP.NET controls, this is how I have been doing it.

Additional CSS classes:

.checkboxlist-inline li, .radiobuttonlist-inline li

.checkboxlist-inline, .radiobuttonlist-inline
margin-left: 20px;

.checkboxlist-inline label, .radiobuttonlist-inline label

Then your ASP.NET controls will need some CSS classes applied, and some special attributes:

<asp:CheckBoxList ID="CheckBoxList1" runat="server" CssClass="list-unstyled checkbox checkboxlist-inline" RepeatDirection="Vertical" RepeatLayout="UnorderedList"></asp:CheckBoxList>

<asp:RadioButtonList ID="RadioButtonList1" runat="server" CssClass="list-unstyled radio radiobuttonlist-inline" RepeatDirection="Vertical" RepeatLayout="UnorderedList"></asp:RadioButtonList>

As you can see, I use the UnorderdedList layout and then change the styling of the LI elements to inline-blocks. By using the Bootstrap checkbox/radio classes combined with the list-unstyled we get a result very similar to the native Bootstrap styling.
