Subject Re: checkbox on indexed form field
Date Tue, 01 Jun 2004 13:34:06 GMT
I actually found a much better way to do this. If you have a hidden form
field with a blank value that you name the same thing as your checkbox, then
something always gets passed with the form. If you don't have the checkbox
checked, then just a blank field with that name gets passed. If the checkbox
is checked, then the proper value is checked. It is a very slick solution to
this problem I think.

A simplistic version of this for anybody who didn't understand my
explanation:

<html:checkbox name="testName" property="testProp" indexed="true" />
<html:hidden name="testName" property="testProp" indexed="true" value="" />

I assume this would work the same if you weren't using indexed properties as
well.
