I'm assuming that by "list box", you mean a combination of the <select> and <option> html tags.

Struts has custom tags for dealing with this type of control. Read the information in the following link, focusing specifically on the <html:select> and <html ptions> tags.

I am thinking you are asking for select box implementation in struts.

For select box with dynamic values you need to create 3 variables

1. to hold the selected value
2. arraylist of option values
3. arraylist of option names

For select box with static values you need to create 1 variable

1. to hold the selected value

<html:select name="formBean" property="selectPropertyName">
<html ption value="value">display name</html ption>
</html:select>

And populate the select box in your display action bean.

I hope this helps you.
