Consider the following code,

when "${selec.comp.isBoolean}" is true i need to display this check box as readonly and avoid user to edit these fields?
Also I need to the store the values of these check boxes(with ${selec.comp.isBoolean} value true) in a java script array. how to store these values?

The "readonly" attribute can only be used for <input> tags of type "text" and "password". It won't work for a checkbox. You can disable the checkbox, but that also means that its value will not be submitted with the form. You can get around this by creating a corresponding hidden field for reach disabled checkbox. That way the values will still be submitted with the form.

As for your JavaScript array, use the same code I gave you in your preivious thread, except look for disabled boxes, rather than unchecked boxes:

if (box.type == "CHECKBOX" && box.disabled)
