form with submit option

Hi all I have a form that has a bunch of items with each item being associated with a checkbox. In the past I was using the checkboxes as a manner of deleting each of the items, but I realize now that is inadequate for what I need. I need to be able to edit the items or delete them depending on that choice. Can anyone suggest any nice manners in which to accomplish this ?

use a dispatch action and use javascript to set the method name on the form (to tell dispatch action which method to execute) then have your javascript submit the form. (the edit button would set the method to edit and the delete button would set the method to delete).

Thanks for the suggestion but is there anywhere that might have some sample code of something similiar ? I'm still learning how everything interacts in struts, and unfortunately I learn by seeing now by explanation.

If not thanks for the help so far.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
