I have an ActionForm in struts-config for eg,

<form-bean name="SomeForm" >
<form-property name="stringsSelected" type="java.lang.String[]" />

In JSP, i am creating a hidden field for this property like,

<html:hidden property = "stringsSelected"/>

Now i want to to pass a javascript string array using this form property fuch as

<script type="javascript">

function aFunct(){

document.forms[0].stringsSelected.value = myJSStringArray;


document.forms[0].stringsSelected = myJSStringArray;


If property stringsSelected is a string instead of string [] it works, for String array it does'nt.

Is there any way to send a javascript arry to server using forms?.

Please do not cross-post the same question in more than one forum.
