Struts2: Can my action class pick up falses in a collection of checkboxs

Hi,

I have a colleciton of objects displayed in a table using an iterator, on the end of each row I have a checkbox where you can select each row

<s:iterator ..... id="row" >
...
... <s: name="selected" value="row.id" >
...
<s:iterator>

I happiily pick up the trues in my action class with this attribute and associated getters and setters..

private Long[] selected ;

The array holds as many trues as selected but really I would like it to hold as many as there are checkboxes displayed and the falses are somehow tagged as such.

Can this be done? The alternative is hidden form attributes which could possibly be insecure.

Thanks in advance.

The <s:checkbox...> tag creates a hidden field for un-checked checkboxes already.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
