It's not possible to set Checkboxes to a variable using the GUI.

But it might be worth editting a simple JMX script to see what happens if
you replace 
"false" with 
"${FOLLOW}" or "${__P{follow.redirect,false)}" 
for example

This might work - try it and see! - but the edit might not be preserved if
the script is loaded and resaved from JMeter.

If this does not work, a workround would be to use a batch editor (sed,
Perl, awk, or whatever) to update the script just before using it.

Or you could hard-code both options in the script and use two If controllers
to switch between them. This would allow the choice to be made at run-time,
but would be awkward when there are lots of possible combinations...

to do so until the underlying http connection code is changed from the

So I guess I wasn't clear on this point but I am doing a lot of HTTP sample

I've tried using variable and it's working out great. I also tried toying
more with copy and paste and for some reasons after I rebooted my machine it
started working!!!

Now, I have one last question. Is there a way to define and apply variables
that can change checkbox based parameters such as Follow Redirects and Use
KeepAlive seen in HTTTP sampler?

Thanks for the help.
