Remarks

The Render method is used primarily by control developers in custom controls that derive from the CheckBoxList class.

The Render implementation for a CheckBoxList control initializes a RepeatInfo object for the list, and calls the RenderRepeater method, which in turn uses the RenderItem method to render individual check box list items.
