    I have a radgrid defined which contains a GridCheckBoxColumn.  Our accessibility evaluation tool is complaining because the input (checkbox) does not have a label associated with it.  I have EnableAriaSupport set to true on the radgrid.  I currently have a work around, which applies an "aria-label" attribute to the input in the idem created event.  But I'm hoping you can provide a better solution.  I'm including the column definition and my work around code below.



        Protected Sub grid_ItemCreated(sender As Object, e As GridItemEventArgs)
            If TypeOf e.Item Is GridDataItem Then
                Dim item As GridDataItem = DirectCast(e.Item, GridDataItem)

                If TypeOf item("Active").Controls(0) Is CheckBox Then
                    Dim Ctrl As CheckBox = DirectCast(item("Active").Controls(0), CheckBox)

                    Ctrl.InputAttributes.Add("aria-label", "Active")
                End If

            End If
        End Sub

    Hi Raymond,

    I can confirm that the aria-label attribute is missing from the input element. I logged the issue in our system and you can track the progress in out Ideas&Feedback portal. Nevertheless, the approach that you are using is a valid one and it is the one I would recommend you for your case.
