Ok my situation is that I have a series of checkboxes and I create them using a LinkedHashMap so that the order I put the data in the Map is the same order they appear as checkboxes in the UI. That part works perfectly, the problem is that when i submit the form the data seems to get thrown into a HashMap and the results are returned in a sorted order....not the same order as they appear. Its crucial that I get the ordering. any ideas on how I can do this???

Currently I have my form object:


I set the checkboxes in my prepare() method:


They display perfectly in my UI layed out the way i inserted them:



but when i check all the boxes the keyset become sorted. I know a way I could do it would be something like and do some string parsing to display the data correctly....this but I dont want to do it this way

You will probably have to make a custom type converter to override the default behavior.

hmmm...yea i couldn't figured out how to get that to do what i wanted. so i just went with plan B which was use numeric keys, then once struts returned the unsorted hashmap i just sorted the keys and i got what i wanted.
