Hi all!

I have some trouble with checkboxes and struts, and haven't been able to find a similar question on the forum yet.

My problem is that I get this error when trying to use a checkbox:
javax.servlet.ServletException: No getter method for property theForm.dataObj.isEnabled of bean org.apache.struts.taglib.html.BEAN

My code in the jsp page looks like this:
<td><html:checkbox property="thForm.dataObj.isEnabled"/></td>

I have checked so that I have a getter method for this object, and html:text is working fine from the same object. The get method returns a boolean, is that incorrect? Is it possible to "link" a checkbox towards a value like this?

The get method:

If anyone has an example of how they use checkboxes it would be great!
