I think you can use your backing beans's property which should be array. but I am not sure how to do that.

the other way round is to iterate through the request parameters and get the value.


pr:prForm:prTable - pr is subview id, prForm is Form id and prTable is dataTable id.

chk - is id of check box

cnt - is a counter to keep track of the check box number.

I hope that helps.

use a dataTable to display your checkbox and other controls.


thats all you need. you can be assured that when the action method in your backing bean is called, the "someList" will be populated correctly with what the user has selected.
