Question: How do I know which checkbox was clicked and which one wasn't using DynaActionForm?

In your action form, the property "test" should be defined as type String[]. When the form is submitted, this String array will contain a string matching the value attribute for each check box that was checked.

If you want the check boxes to be checked or unchecked based on the current value of the "test" array in the DynaActionForm, you should use the struts <html:checkboxes> tag.

I see the lable for the checkboxes but not the checkbox itself, I try to use multibox I had the same problem. although I have the following line on top of my page <%@ taglib uri="/tags/struts-html-el" prefix="html" %>
In the log I get the following error
Could not complete parsing, unmatched tags: submit

Thank you
