Hello Joerg,

This is how a multivalue field with checkboxes is defined in the form definition and template.
They are generated out of a Schema so each multivaluefield is defined using the same pattern.

Form definition:
<wd:multivaluefield id="Product-SalesMethod">
  <wd:label>Sales methods</wd:label>
  <wd:help>Distribution method of the product</wd:help><wd:datatype base="string"/>
    <wd:item value="Online"><wd:label>Online</wd:label></wd:item>
    <wd:item value="Implementation partners"><wd:label>Implementation partners</wd:label></wd:item>
    <wd:item value="Resellers"><wd:label>Resellers</wd:label></wd:item>
    <wd:item value="Sales force"><wd:label>Sales force</wd:label></wd:item>
    <wd:item value="Other"><wd:label>Other</wd:label></wd:item>
    <wd:item value="None"><wd:label>None</wd:label></wd:item>

Form template:
<wt:widget-label id="Product-SalesMethod"/>
<wt:widget id="Product-SalesMethod">
  <wi:styling list-type="checkbox"/>

The resulting HTML page with the form only has the standard <body onload="woody_onload();
">. Otherwise there are no @on* attributes anywhere in the code.
