checkboxes + multipage forms

I'm just starting learning struts, and one thing confuses me. The recommended way to allow the "unchecking" of a checkbox is to implement the reset() method, right? But what if the ActionForm is distributed across multiple pages? If the reset() method is implemented, should each page have an <html:hidden> entry for each field that's populated in other pages?

Thank you,

you can use something like this in your reset method:

So the reset method will reset you checkbox only on page 1, actually on the page, where your html:checkbox is placed. Dont forget to place a on your page. Certainly, you can change the page number as you will.
I recommend you to check out struts wizard functionality and maybe you can have a look in the source codes aswell.
I agree. Here's the link:
