Accessing javascript array inside a div.

Hello all,

I'm having the following problem, I'm using AJAX to make a request to the server when I'm building the response I'm using a lot of javascript to be able to populate the checkboxes and handle information in Arrays. When I receive the response in my principal JSP I catch the response and put it in a DIV tag with the innerHTML property. Until here everything is ok and working fine but then the problems start :
1 : The HTML displayed doesn't have any check box selected. When I know that all check boxes has to be selected.
2 : Can't access to any array created by java script.

My real problem is that I can't access any javascript variables that I declare in the built response and that I set in the div.

Example of what I have:

RESPONSE in a JSP built like a XML FILE:

Now really simple question I think, how can I access to the variable CheckedArray in the principal JSP.

I thought it was interpreted like a local variable.

Thanks All
