In this article I will explain with an example, how to display multiple CheckBoxes with Checked Unchecked values in ASP.Net MVC Razor.
The CheckBoxes along with their checked or unchecked (selected) values will be populated from SQL Server database using Entity Framework in ASP.Net MVC Razor.
Note: For beginners in ASP.Net MVC, please refer my article ASP.Net MVC Hello World Tutorial with Sample Program example.

Creating an Entity Data Model
The very first step is to create an ASP.Net MVC Application and connect it to the Database using Entity Framework. For more details, please refer my article ASP.Net MVC: Simple Entity Framework Tutorial with example.

Namespaces
You will need to import the following namespace.
using System.Collections.Generic;
 
 
Controller
The Controller consists of the following Action method.
Action method for handling GET operation
Inside this Action method, first the records from the database are fetched using Entity Framework.
Finally, the Generic list of Hobbies is returned to the View.
public class HomeController : Controller
{
    // GET: Home
    public ActionResult Index()
    {
        using (HobbiesEntities entities = new HobbiesEntities())
        {
            return View(entities.Hobbies.ToList());
        }
    }
}
 
 
View
Inside the View, in the very first line the Generic list of Hobby class is declared as Model for the View.
Then a loop is executed over the Generic list of Hobby class objects and an HTML Table is generated consisting of a CheckBox and a Label.
The CheckBox will be checked or unchecked based on the value of the IsSelected property.
@model List<Hobby>
 
@{
    Layout = null;
}
 
<!DOCTYPE html>
 
<html>
<head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width"/>
    <title>Index</title>
</head>
<body>
    <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
        <tr>
            <th></th>
            <th>Hobby</th>
        </tr>
        @foreach (Hobby hobby in Model)
        {
            <tr>
                <td>
                    @Html.CheckBoxFor(m => hobby.IsSelected)
                </td>
                <td>
                    @Html.DisplayFor(m => hobby.Description)
                </td>
            </tr>
        }
    </table>
</body>
</html>
