Problem with checkbox in Mvc 5

Hi Guys,

I am having an issue with a simple check box used in a MVC 5 form I set value to example yes when looking in database (entity framework code first) if check box is selected value in database is yes if check box is not selected value is still yes this is driving me nuts.

I am using ion=13.1500.0.21 and Syncfusion.EJ, Version=13.1450.0.21

Any help would be appreaciated

Hi Edmund,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We have analyzed the reported issue (Checkbox always posts “Yes” to the value even if it is unchecked.) with our sample in the Version and we are unable to reproduce the issue in our end. We have prepared the sample based on your requirement and the same can be downloaded from the following location.


In this sample the value “Yes” will get posted only if the check box has been checked. Kindly check with the sample and let us know if you would require any further assistance.

Hi Guys,

Problem resolved if  <add key="UnobtrusiveJavaScriptEnabled" value="false" /> is set to true, problem with check box is visible
so don't set it to true
