How to Parse Checkbox Input Type Value to String

How to Parse Checkbox Input Type Value to String

I currently have this functionality in place for a decimal value, but I also need it for a checkbox. Below is what I have for the decimal value, how can I replicate this for my check box value?

CODE -->

if (decimal.TryParse(txtGift.Value.ToString().Replace("$", ""), out number))//93
                addItemToCart("Gift of ", number);
                addDonations(number, 93);
                addOnTotal = addOnTotal + number;

RE: How to Parse Checkbox Input Type Value to String

In reagrd to an asp.Net control, A checkbox doesn't really have a 'value'. It has a 'Text' property, which is the textual value displayed describing the purpose or meaning of the checkbox, (i.e., Please uncheck if you do not wish to receive marketing from us in the future), and a 'Checked' property which is a boolean.

If you're working with an Html control I believe the 'value' is the equivalent of the 'Text' property, (see above), so are you really looking for the value of the 'checked' property of an Html checkbox control?
