    I have a metafield in my admin control template that can accept multiple values.  I plan on storing the value as a string of values separated by semicolons.  The problem I'm having though is that I am unsure what kind of control I could use to achieve this functionality.  My first thought is to use a checkbox control.  I think I can save my selected values by creating a new web user control that inherits from ITextControl and overriding the Text property, but I'm unsure how to populate the control when the control template is loaded.

    Hello Levi Burton,

    Inside your control you can override CreateChildControls or InitializeControls and bind the CheckBoxList.

    Kind regards,
