Remarks

Use this property to control the spacing between the contents of a cell and the cell's border in the CheckBoxList control.

The padding amount specified is added to all four sides of a cell with the height of the tallest cell and width of the widest cell in the CheckBoxList control. The resulting cell size is applied uniformly to all cells in the CheckBoxList control.
