Subject RE: any way to turn a checkbox on based on a request value?
Date Mon, 09 Dec 2002 22:47:45 GMT
Since this is a Struts ML, I mean with Struts tags. The form itself is a
DynaActionForm and whether the checkbox is turned on or not depends on the
Action that preceeds the form display. Looking at the src, it appears that
html:checkbox only work with beans (a shortcoming of the tag, imho). To get
this work, I had to add a boolean field to a model bean.

So the boolean value is not a property of an ActionForm?  It's just a
Boolean object sitting in the session and it has nothing to do with Struts?

When you ask, 'is there any way to do this?' do you mean with struts tags?
It's certainly possible without them.
